Florence was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend to all. She is survived by her four children: Jerry (Marylou) Emlet of Easley, SC, Marla (Lee) Shull of Landisburg, Crista (Bill) Lyons of Loysville, and Lori (David) Weaver of Landisburg; eleven grandchildren; twenty-three great grandchildren; her sister, Martha Loy of Carlisle, and four sisters-in-law, Miriam Emlet of Loysville, Phyllis Milligan of Carlisle, Edna Milligan of Loysville, and Kay Milligan of Northumberland.

Florence proudly raised a family and managed the household. She was a faithful member of Tressler Free Lutheran Church in Loysville. She was known for her beautiful flower beds and her great sense of humor. She loved visiting her family, cooking, baking, crocheting, embroidery, reading, and putting jigsaw puzzles together.
