Flo loved her children and grandchildren, and took great pride in their accomplishments. She enjoyed many summer vacations on the beaches of Cape Cod with her family and dreamed of traveling to Scotland to visit the Highlands. She also loved watching British television programs and drinking chocolate malts. She will be fondly remembered for drawing angel wings on every card and letter she sent, and telling her family she loved them to the moon and back.
A memorial service will be held in early 2022. The family requests that remembrances be made in the form of contributions to the Hospice of the Western Reserve.
