Flora and Chum were one in a million. I worked with Flora at Lombard Emerald branch for 7 years. She holds a special place in the heart of my family, never did she forget to send a birthday card to my daughters, always with smiley face stickers on the envelope! Now Flora is with her beloved Chum, and I am sure they are up there dancing and singing with the angels!
Flora, Chum and I would talk about our time at Stadium High School. Even though we attended about 25 years apart, it created a fun connection for us. My husband Bob Burk worked with Flora at Lombard Emerald Branch of U.S. Bank. We all became life long friends. Flora was the most kind, giving person I have ever known. Even though we had moved to Eugene in 2001, we stayed in contact, mostly because of Flora's initiative in calling us. We always felt so loved and cared for by Flora and I know that all those that knew her felt the same way. God could not have called a more wonderful angel home.
My family (Enquist, Langton & Grebe) were neighbors of the Colburn's for many years. Flora & Chum were great neighbors and friends. I have many good memories of Flora as my babysitter, neighbor and eventually banker! Chick & Roberta, with Flora's passing, please accept my condolences to you and your families. We were very fortunate to grow up in a great neighborhood with wonderful parents and families.
I worked with Flora at Lombard Emerald branch when I first joined the Bank in 1981. She was probably the most customer service oriented person I ever met, and she treated the customers like family. I will certainly miss her.
We will greatly miss Flora. She was a very special person in our lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
I worked with Flora when I first started at US Bank in 1976 and I remember her warm and caring personality, and her strong work ethic. Plus she was just fun to be around. It's been several years since I saw her last, but she still had that sparkle then and that's how I will always remember her.
To have shared many laughs and good times with FLora makes us smile as we remember the fun times and the way she made us feel special. May the family find comfort knowing she was loved by many.
Flora's happy smiles will be greatly missed. We met at Rose Villa and shared many happy times together and Flora was my very best customer, she bought many of the home made Betty Boop aprons that I sold at the bazaar for her family and friends.
My thoughts are with you Flora.
Flora you know how much you will be missed. Your friendship can never be measured. Thank you for our good and bad times we shared. All of them with Love.
