So sorry to read of Mrs. Losin's passing---just wanted to share what a lovely woman she was-- she always had a smile, was interested in me and others, was so dedicated to her church, and was such a pleasure to be around. So glad she lived such a long life (as my mom did) and got to see her children that she loved so much grow and know grandchildren and greats. My thoughts are with you all.
How lucky we all were to have her in our lives.

Sending our love and condolences to all the family. Really hard to lose our moms. My mom Louise Pershing passed on January 12. Amazing that the two former neighbors died two days apart. What great childhood memories we have. When we were banging around playing basketball in your one car garage, your mom was always afraid I was going to get hurt. . When my sisters were playing Barbies with the Spence girls, I was playing sports with the Losin boys. Those were the days .....blessings to you all

Our condolences to the Losin family. Aunt Florence was such a wonderful woman who was extremely loved and appreciated. We have so many fond memories of our long distance visits that will never be forgotten. Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to all.

I would like to share my memory of my Cioci Florence as a strong caring aunt and mom to her family. As a young child living on Grand Island NY, I remember being watched by her at her home on Stony Point Rd. having lots of fun playing with her lots of kids. I still live just down the road in town. When the family moved to Indiana, we didn't see them too much through the years, but my thoughts were always with her and her family. We did travel to see them several times, but not nearly enough.
I recently lost my mother Irene (Florence's sister) so now the entire family is in heaven together.
My sorrow, thoughts and prayers are with the family today, tomorrow and forever.

Mrs. Losin was quite a lady and lived a great life. Her husband, Al, was my godfather. The one thing about Mrs. Losin that I remember most is the fact that she used to call me by my full name, Randall Joseph Rolls, whenever I would see her. When Al passed away, I was unable to attend the funeral, but I sent her a note of condolence. She wrote me back a beautiful thank you note which I still have. It was, of course, addressed to Randall Joseph Rolls. I will, unfortunately, be unable to attend her funeral service as I have had a recent surgery. I would like to send my condolences to the family. She was a great lady and lived a great life. God bless the Losin family.

Mrs. Florence has been a special friend of mine since I was in eighth grade (approximately 40 years). I met her through her son Eric who was my homeroom and English teacher at the time (in Echols County, GA). Even after Eric left the school and returned to Indiana, we remained in contact several times a year.
Mrs. Losin and I developed quite a sweet friendship, and in many ways, she was like a grandmother to me. She even took a bus from Greencastle to Madison, Florida to attend my wedding in 1989.
One year, my family and I did take the opportunity once to visit her and her husband (Mr. Al), as well as Eric and his family (his wife Karla and their daughters - Sara and Emily) My oldest daughter is named Sara Emily (which was not necessarily intentional, but is very fitting).
Over the years, we exchanged family pictures and news of life events. I have many family pictures of hers (including her children's wedding pictures, grandchildren and family pictures from over the years) and she had plenty of mine.
She and my mother even became friends.
Mrs. Florence and Mr. Al never forgot my birthday (and seldom forgot my anniversary). We made a point of talking on the phone at least for birthdays, anniversaries (theirs and mine) and some holidays.
I am blessed to have met her, and Mrs. Florence will forever hold a special place in my heart.
