Florence Makoff Obituary
February 3, 1913 - October 3, 2015 Florence Makoff passed away peacefully, at the age of 102 on October 3, 2015 in Tarzana, California. She was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut on February 27, 1913, the oldest of 5 children, to Fred and Mary Mooney. The family soon moved to Bakersfield, California, where Florence attended Bakersfield city schools and graduated from Kern County Union High School in 1930. During high school she met Lester Makoff and on March 6, 1935, they were married. They were founding members of Temple Beth El and were very involved in the life and growth of the temple. Florence's main purpose in life, however, was that of mother and homemaker. She raised two sons and made a warm home for her family. She was the glue that kept the family together. Florence was preceded in death by Lester in 2007. She is survived by their two sons, Stephen and Richard, her brother Albert, 2 granddaughters, Jennifer and Jessica, 3 great grand children, Mckenna, Max and Maddie, as well as nieces and nephews. Florence was a good wife, mother and friend….better than she even knew. Thanks to the people at Brookdale Assisted Living and the Vesper Hospice workers who took such good care of our mother. Rest in Peace mom, we'll all miss you.
