I remember Flo & Ned, being good friends of my parent's, Hubert & Mildred Vokey. Years ago they always sat together on saturday nights, at the Nfld, Club or the Legion in Galt. Both couples loved to dance and crack jokes, God has a new angel in heaven, one of the best. We will miss her, but never forget her, RIP,

To Flo's Family
Your Mother was such a positive, strong force in your lives and I know she will be sadly missed. I am grateful I knew her and also for being included in her many birthday celebrations at Phyllis & Frank's house. Flo & Ned raised five wonderful children and received much love in return. Rest in peace now Flo.

I’m Kristin, Flo’s grand daughter ❤️ I got the honour over the years of being Flo’s grand daughter - and my kids being her great grandchildren. There are so many memories made over the years but the memories I’ll always cherish are the memories I made with her the last couples of months! The way she giggled when she found out I was riding a motorcycle; or when she told me my helmet looked funny and smiled at me. The daily morning teas & talks I had with my Nan. I will cherish every single minute I had with you Nan. You will be dearly missed my many. Your strong presence always made everyone smile; and your Newfie pride shone through. I’m going to miss you so much Nan ❤️ till we meet again 🙏🏼

I have many wonderful memories of Flo. Rowena was my best friend growing up and I was maid of honour at Rowena 's wedding. I remember the time I was helping Rowena with the dishes and I dropped a cup and broke it .I dropped the cup towel and ran home scared to death but Flo didn't say anything. Rest In Peace Flo, you lived a long life.
