Sweet, modest, stylish, patient, focused and artistic, Florine had an amazing eye for detail which was exemplified in her craft of making miniatures. She volunteered at the Atwood House & Museum for many years and later at Maps of Antiquity. Florine was good with computers and embraced new technology. As helpful neighbor, loyal friend, dedicated wife and mother, Florine left those around her feeling cared for and nurtured by her gentle spirit. We will miss her.
