She was a loving, devoted mother and grandmother who taught her children early on about the love of Jesus and the importance of faith, prayer, and trust in Him. Her faith never wavered even during difficult times. Floyce was a dignified, strong Southern lady. She was always impeccably groomed; beautiful inside and out. She was loving, compassionate, and always put her children first. She also proudly worked as a realtor for several years. She was an avid reader until her eyesight failed. She kept us all updated on politics and current events. She was a great storyteller and had a wonderful sense of humor. We all enjoyed and looked forward to her delicious, southern cooking.
