Friends and family will fondly remember spending time in Flora¹s sewing room, getting fitted, measured and sometimes poked by pins, as she carefully measured pant hems, dresses and anything else she could make with her many yards of fabric. In addition to her amazing talent as a seamstress, Flora was also an excellent chef, baker and crafter.
Flora was a quiet, sweet lady with a selfless and giving way. She was loved and respected by all who knew her. Flora and Bill also loved to travel and had many adventures, including trips to Alaska, California, Nevada and Romania.
