Florence (Flo) was loved by all who knew her for her kindness, generous heart, quick wit and beautiful smile. She was a wonderful wife, daughter, mother, aunt, sister, grandmother and friend. She was always willing to listen and help in any way. She and her late husband Mike moved from Long Island, N.Y to Singers Glen, VA. in 2002. She attended Singer’s Glen Baptist Church where she made many friends and sang in the choir. She was a woman of strong faith.
