Florence enjoyed living in her 1860’s farm house and tending to her many gardens. She enjoyed family vacations to Ocean City, NJ and the Adirondack Mountains in up state New York. Her passion for Genealogy led her to many trips to Philadelphia to the various archive buildings.

"Funerals are not to benefit the dead, but the living. They have a number of unparalleled therapeutic benefits. As a rite of passage, the funeral assists you in recognizing the passing of your loved one, supporting you as you start your life without the deceased, and reintegrating you back into the social group as a person whose loved one is no longer alive." ~ How to Go on Living When Someone You Love Dies by Therese A.
