I have known Flossie since my days in grammar school (then Fisher No. 1) I always thought a deal and with great respect for. I always thought of her as a friend. I am so sorry that she has passed away but I know that she is with Our Lord.

I have known her my entire life and it always amazed me that she remembered my name. She was always a kind and unique lady with a smile. She will be missed by me and hundreds of others. What a legacy to share. Love to the family, Janet Denet Olsen

When I became friends with Jenea in elementary school, I never knew I’d be adopted into the family like one of their own. Especially by Ms. Flossie. She was such a kind, sweet woman, and I have such fond memories of spending Sunday’s at her house eating sticky chicken, swinging on the swing under the carport, helping organize the letters for the sweet shop sign, and taking a trip to Abbeville. My dad talked about her cooking at Fisher when he was a student all the time. He also had very fond memories of her. I know my parents always knew I was in good hands when I was with them. All my love and sympathy goes out to the Kuhn family. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
