In addition to being an outstanding homemaker, Florence was an avid gardener, a nature lover, and a friend to creatures large and small.  A special thank you to the staff at the Avalon Springs Health Campus Legacy Unit who treated “Flo” with the love and tenderness they would have shown to their own mother for the past two and a half years. Flo’s family is also grateful for the skills and compassion of the professionals from Dunes Hospice.
