Through Florences' marriage to Bill (William R. Howie) the family that shared (and resided) most of the 40 years in Ontario with them - Helen, hometown friends and family, our deepest condolences. Find peace in and know in your hearts the she had the love and support through their most difficult life struggles with illnesses (heart, lung, breast cancer and deaths) as well as in our joys together in happier family life celebrations. With her Bill at last - Flo will be held in a special place in our hearts forever.

Flo would give our little Corgi Tiny a free donut when we walked him late at night and she worked at the donut shop in Lindsay,a very long time ago. Flo was a kind and lovely woman.
