GUTH, Florence Margaret Ellen
(nee Foster)
Of Washington DC, passed away on November 16, 2012, after a short illness. Born in Abernethy, Saskatchewan in 1923 to Kenneth and Annie Foster, Florence emigrated from Canada to Washington DC in 1942 to work for the British Army Staff on Lend Lease. After WWII ended, she accepted a position in the British Embassy. In 1948, following partition, she began work at the newly opened Pakistan Embassy, during which time she accompanied the first Prime Minister of Pakistan on a trip around the United States. Also in 1948, she married Herbert J. Guth, to whom she was married for 53 years, until his death in 2003. She leaves behind two daughters – Barbara Norton and Joanne Guth, two grandsons, brother-in-law Raymond Guth (Dotty), and many friends and relatives in the United States and Canada. In later years, she rekindled a high school friendship with Charles Bonner, who preceded her in death by five days. She remained close to her Canadian roots all her life, making her last trip to Saskatchewan in 2010. She enjoyed painting, playing piano, dancing, bridge, and tennis.
