It is with the greatest appreciation for a long life that we announce her passing at Wheatland Lodge in Leask with family at her side.

Florence grew up in the Woodhill District near Iroquois Lake. She had one older brother and five younger sisters. They were a close-knit family and loved celebrating many special occasions over the years.

Florence was loved by everyone for her kind, gentle demeanor, no one ever had an unkind word to say about her.
