    Florence was one of the first people I met when I moved to Jamestown in 1981, and I will always remember her as one of the kindest, friendliest, and most helpful people I’ve ever known. My sympathies are with you. She was a good person – in essence the highest we can all aspire to be.

    Bless you,
    Lori Patton

    You know words could never explain how much Flo meant to the girls and I. We were so blessed to have her as part of our “family.” She will be forever in our hearts and mind.

    My condolences and sympathy to Ray and family. Florence and my wife Janet were in
    the same Penn High School Class of 1953. We were always sure to visit the
    Strawberry Patch at the Jamestown Fair.
