Flora Ruth Garrison

April 20, 1943 - June 6, 2018

Flora passed unexpectedly at the age of 75 in Modesto, Ca. She was born in Inverness, Mississippi, to the union of James and Hattie Mae Allen. Flora was the youngest of 7 children.

The family moved to Illinois, where Flora graduated from Bloom Township High School. She was granted an honorable discharge in 1965, after serving 5 years in the army. Flora made the San Francisco Bay Area her home. She was briefly married to her first husband, Charles Tyner (deceased), and from that union their son, Maurice Tyner was born. Since 1968, Flora has been married to the love of her life, David B. Garrison, and their daughter, Charmane Garrison was born from that union.

Flora and David settled in Daly City, California. after 25 years of employment at the San Francisco VA Hospital, Flora retired in 1999 as a food service supervisor. That decision was influenced by her desire to care for their only grandchild, Demauriah Garrison, who was born two years prior. In 2000, the retired couple made Modesto, Ca their new home.

Flora was preceded in death by her parents, one half sister, one brother and two sisters. Flora was a loving wife and mother, and a very special grandmother. Flora will be greatly missed by a host of nieces, nepews, family and friends.
