Florence Belle Weitzler Obituary
March 23, 1915 - April 28, 2016 Belle was Florence's middle name, and beauty was with her all her life. She was born in Chicago, Illinois and graduated from Roosevelt High School. A gifted singer, Florence was the star of Gilbert and Sullivan productions at her school and went on to sing on radio and teach voice. She met and married Marc Henshel at age 22. She later moved with her family to California, away from the snow and the icy wind off Lake Michigan that once froze her voice before an audition. Love came to Florence a second time when widowed after 47 years of marriage, she took a tour to Las Vegas and came off the bus holding hands with Irving Weitzler, her future husband of 27 years. Florence is survived by her daughter Marcey and son Bruce, and by her stepchildren, Jay and Linda Weitzler and Maxine and Glenn Farber, and their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Florence loved and was loved by her family and many friends. She preferred no service.
