  1. Flo was my Grandma. She was such a sweet person and she was a devout Christian. She and my Grandpa played a large role in my life growing up and I really owe a lot to them. She was such a good cook and she made everything from scratch. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas there was a feast and she would say “If you leave hungry, it’s your fault!” Grandma taught me to bake when I was a kid and we made whoopie pies and cookies all the time! I’m glad she gave me the training because I use it constantly as an adult. She was a master at crocheting and she had the patience of a saint. The world lost a really great woman who can’t be replaced. I will miss her until the day I die. “I love you Grandma and I’ll be good, I promise. Tell Grandpa I said hi.”

  2. Our memories of Flo are many.We went on the many Kentucky mission trips with Flo and Max. Flo and I taught kindergarten class at Mt Zion many years.Flo was a gracious and loving friend that open her home every Wednesday for a group of ladies to crochet lap robes and always serve us wonderful lunches.We will always have these God given memories. We extend our sympathy to her family and are remembering you in our prayers.

  3. Flo was such a sweet lady with a warm smile for everyone! We have so many beautiful memories of her at church! A real angel on earth as she was quick to lend a hand to all! She will be missed! Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with her family. May you feel God’s warm embrace surrounding you!
