Memories Timeline


  1. Please accept my sympathy in the loss of your loved one. It was my great pleasure to visit and become acquainted with this sweet and talented lady when I was an ombudsman at
    Presbyterian Manor. My visits with her were always pleasant ones.

  2. Granny was such a sweet and kind hearted person. She gave the best hugs and had the cutest laugh! I loved her and will miss her very much. Sending so much love to the family.

  3. Florence was such a nice lady! I got to know her while volunteering for Birthday bingo. It wasn't that long ago that I sat outside on a beautiful sunny day with her while she waited for her ride to the dentist. My sincere sympathy and condolences to your family. I know she will be missed.

  4. Cousin Florence was my dearest Cousin and my dearest Friend. She was always so bright and cheerful on the phone and also helpful regarding our shared Family Genealogy. I so remember she and her Mother visiting us here in Virginia in the mid 1950s and the later 1980s. And then seeing her and your Dad at my God Daughters wedding in Cape Giradeau in the early 1990s. Her Mother, Edna was the oldest in the Wild Family and my Mother, Margaret, was the youngest. God Bless !
