Flo was truly a remarkable person who will be greatly missed. I am glad that I had the chance to work with Flo at Sears for the past 15 years. She will always be in my heart and never forgotten. Lesa Clukey
first met Flo when she began working at Sears, and found that we had some mutual friends. I will miss the days of going to Sears and kidding around with her. She was always friendly and will be missed deeply. Rest in Peace Flo, Bart Cutler
Florence was a great lady who was always willing to do anything for anyone. I worked with her at Sears for many years and got to know what a wonderful person she was. Hopefully, she is smiling down from above with no more pain and knowing that many people miss her. My prayers go out to her family. Jamie Marticello

Dear Jim, Barbara, Sylvia and family. Florence was a cherished neighbor of ours on Draper Avenue enjoying many wonderful times with my Mom and Dad when they were alive and she was absolutely great to Mom after Dad passed away. She was as you said in the obituary always putting others before herself. I deeply regret that we didn't get to see her after she became ill - we will have a joint Mass celebrated for her and Mom at St. Charles to commemorate their friendship. Our thoughts and prayers are with you today. Sincerely, Jim and Polly Renckens (Helen and Ray Parrott's daughter and husband.
