With her daughter by her side, Flo passed away peacefully Monday, September 26, 2011.
Flo was born June 12, 1920, in England. She was the 9th child of 11 children. Flo met and married her husband Albert (Al), a Canadian soldier in 1943 in England during WW11. She immigrated to Canada in March 1946. After living briefly in Edmonton and Victoria, Flo and Al settled in the Comox Valley.
For many years Flo worked at the original Glacier View home. She loved working with the elderly; however, her three children were her pride and joy. Flo was a devoted, loving mother who always put her children first. She was the epitome of what motherhood was and is all about.
Flo was predeceased by her husband, her grandson Chad, her daughter-in-law Lois, and her siblings. She will be sadly missed by her daughter Carol (Scott Martin), son Tom (Carol), son Ron (Cathy) her grandchildren and her great grandchildren.
Flo will be forever remembered for her positive, happy outlook on life, her cheerful smile, her insight and intuition and for her great sense of humour. Those who were fortunate enough to really know her knew that although she was a gentle, warm lady, she could be feisty when necessary. Despite being blind and plagued by a serious health problem, Flo always looked at the bright side of life. Her cup was always half full – never half empty. Flo was and is an inspiration to us all.
Flo’s family would like say a big thank you to the “Angels” who work at Ocean View Manor and to Dr. Neufeld. A Service of Remembrance for Flo will be held Saturday, October 29th at 2 PM at Casa Loma Assisted Living, 4646 Headquarters Road, Courtenay.
