Hello, we are so sorry to hear of Florence passing. We have SO many fond memories of her and Nick. What special times we were all so lucky to have shared with your family. The camping, trips across the lake, the poems and tricks we all enjoyed! I can still hear both your mom and dad’s giggles. Hugs to you all, sincerely Karen (Gartland) and Alf Czar and family.

What is lovely never dies, but passes into another loveliness, star-dust or sea-foam, flower or winged air.” —Thomas Bailey Aldrich Our sincere condolences to all of you who knew and loved Florence. Time has a nasty habit of slipping by and before you know it we lose the ability to go back. The chance for a hug or a talk. Florence was an absolutely grand lady. Always kind and ready to help. I knew her well when she lived in the Creston area. Spent many evenings at her kitchen table sipping her homemade wine, but then life seemed to get in the way and we no longer saw each other. Miss those lovely evenings. Rest in peace my cousin….someday we will do it again. With love I say goodbye. Rose Jorundson

An important part of our family tree has gone to look after other things. She will be remembered with love. Thank you for being there for all of us, Respectfully, Gwen (Popoff) Chernenkoff
