FLORENCE AVERY "FLO" MARR

MARR, FLORENCE AVERY "FLO" Our beloved Flo passed away Friday, December 21, 2012, of pancreatic cancer. She was born in Fall River, Massachusetts and moved to Elsinore, California when she was 13. After graduating from Elsinore Union High School, she moved with her family to La Jolla, where she resided for many years. Flo later moved to San Diego's Bankers Hill. She was employed for over 30 years by San Diego Trust and Savings Bank, where she began as a messenger and retired as the Assistant General Auditor and Vice President of that institution. A member of the San Diego Colony of Mayflower Descen-dants and The Daughters of the American Revolution, De Anza Chapter, Flo was directly descended from eight Pilgrims, numerous Revolutionary War patriots and was related to several U.S. Presidents, one of whom was Abraham Lincoln. She visited her birthplace many times over the years and was proud to be a loyal and patriotic American. Flo is survived by her twin brother Freddy Marr, of Mira Mesa, eldest brother Robert Burrell Marr (Buddy) of Suffolk, Virginia, and numerous adored nieces and nephews. Among them, her niece Belle Johnson Bohn and her husband John, nephew Marvin Scott Johnson, and his wife, Nancy Johnson, were very close to her and were always there when needed. In addition, she is survived by her grand nieces, Wendy Johnson Buckley and Kisi and Kari Bohn, and her great-grandniece, Samantha Buckley. Florence was loved by friends, neighbors and associates, as she was warm and accepting and had a heart of gold. Everyone who knew Flo, loved her. She loved life and enjoyed traveling, shopping, dining out and spending time with family and friends. We wish to thank her loyal caregivers during recent months, B.J. and Ana, who faithfully watched over Flo and saw to her comfort and welfare. Her neighbor, Caroline Fisk and family also visited her frequently, brightening her days. We are very grateful to San Diego Hospice for their kind and generous support during Flo's final months. We also want to extend a special thanks to Dr. Lenzkes and his staff, who took such good care of her for many years. Florence will be greatly missed by all who knew her, for her thoughtfulness, kindness and concern touched us all. Services to say "good-bye" and to celebrate her life will be held at El Camino Memorial Park, 5600 Carroll Road, San Diego on Wednesday, January 2, 2013, with Viewing from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., and the Service and Interment directly following.
