Beloved mother of Fraser (Tracy) and Doug (Kate). Proud grandmother of Fraser, Emilie (Brandon Woods), Douglas, Ben, Kendall, and Brittany. Dear daughter of the late Samuel C. and Margaret King. Predeceased by her sister Marilyn Tattrie and brother Samuel A. King. Florence was an enthusiastic Kindergarten teacher for many years at Wells St. Public School, touching the lives of many Aurora students and families.

I remember Florence as very gracious hostess at family parties when Aunt Margaret was alive. Truly sorry that we are unable to attend today. Our sincere condolences to Andy and family. Mary Sager (cousin) and husband Gordon

Andy. Sadly just learned of Florence's passing. I enjoyed getting to know Florence at Wells Street Public School in the late 70's. R.I.P.

Mrs. Floss was my kindergarten teacher. We lived behind her and on my first day of school, she walked with me and held my hand. What a great way to start! She was always smiling. Thanks for being my teacher.
