On February 1, 1920, Florence M. Steckart was welcomed into this world by her parents, William and Mary (Veltus) Steckart and sister, Mary Catherine, and on October 23, 2012 they welcomed her into their heavenly home.
Florence lived in De Pere all her life, attending St. Francis grade school and East De Pere High School.
