Florence was a dear friend to me and to my elderly Mother. Florence would bring Mom bouquets of her beautiful roses and have tea with her in the afternoons after she retired, when I was still teaching.
I went to Florence's classroom to teach art, and she always stayed and worked with the children learning whatever I might be offering herself. She served tea in her garden to my grand daughter Allison when she was 10, Allison now 26, has never forgotten her. She has always been a marvel and full of energy. A very positive person. I will miss her. Donna Johnston, now retired; Past art teacher, seventh grade teacher and Prinicpal in Washington Local Schools.
