Flossie worked with my mama (Jean Holstrom) at the sewing factory when it was in Osage City and in Burlingame. I remember her very well. As much as she loved bowling, I bet she was ECSTATIC when they made the shirts for King Louie Bowling! My mama (and ME) were happy when they made Panhandle Slim Western Wear! I didn't realize she was in Illinois, but I've wondered from time to time what had happened to her. My mama passed in 2002. Hope they can re-connect at the sewing machines in Heaven!! :-)

Mrs Duffey as I remember her here in Osage City was a very active Lady,. We are sad to hear of her passing, may Flossie rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Flossie was one of the most wonderful ladies I have ever met. She always had a positive outlook on everything. Always smiling and very social too. I loved being with her at the church Christmas tea. She was at my 80th birthday party 2 weeks ago with the rest of the family. So glad she was. I loved her, as did everyone else. May she rest in peace . Love, Jan Carr
