Flo had a huge heart and was known for going out of her way to help anyone and everyone. She worked with a boy’s orphanage in Mexico, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Salvation Army, and supported St. Jude’s.

Her other great love spending time with and teaching her nieces and nephews how to tie their shoes and climb trees.

If someone wanted to go on a trip, she was the first one packed. She traveled to Italy, Germany, Norway, Mexico, and many states. No matter where she was visiting, Flo was always on the hunt for the best sushi!
