Florence Ann (Day) Hoult

June 1, 1922January 11, 2021

It is with sad hearts, the family announces that after a long struggle Florence passed peacefully in the evening, while at CHSLD St. Lambert-Sur-Le-Golf.

Florence left us to join her loving husband, Richard Edwin (Ted), who preceded her in death in 1991. Eldest of five, Florence joins her predeceased brothers Bob (Flo), Henry, Russell and her sister Carol (Gord); as well as her parents Harry and Dorothy and grandson Kyle.

Florence is survived by daughter Ellen (Georges), son Jim (Lorraine); Grandchildren Dan, Melissa, Erin (Missy), Adam (Chelsea); Great granddaughter Danica; and Sister-in-Laws Angèle (Angie) and Sheila.

Florence began her very devoted life to the Anglican Church on July 16th, 1922 when baptized at The Church of the Ascension, in Montreal. She married Ted on June 23, 1945.

Ultimately, they settled in a house, on Grant Ave. in Longueuil. Florence worked on making it a true home, welcoming to all. Many in the community, especially those in the Parish of St. Mark’s could attest to that. She gave of her time to the church by participating in it’s out reach programs, choir and administration.

Florence had a lifetime love for cats and flowers. Her gardens won city awards. Family and friends can attest that her hands weren’t only good playing in dirt, as they always enjoyed the scrumptious meals she prepared. Her love of flowers took her to Smith Bros Florists where she was blessed to work part-time with dear friends where her talents and personality flourished.

She was blessed with a multitude of family relatives and enjoyed great relationships with cousins and cherished friends … of which there are too many to mention.

The world was definitely a better place for her having been in it. May she Rest in Peace.

The family is thankful for the staff at Heritage Gardens, and CHSLD St. Lambert Sur-le-Golf for the care shown to Flo over the years. Special thanks are sent to Nurse Anita at the CHSLD for her devotion to Mom’s care.

Finally, our hearts are full of love for Connie, who was Flo’s Girl Friday over the years, making her days bright.

Florence wished to be cremated, and this will permit the family to arrange a Celebration of Life later in the year when travel is once again permitted.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation in her name to a local food bank or animal shelter, as these times have placed stresses on both

Florence was a very good friend for many years. I enjoyed visiting her at her home in Longueuil and was so welcomed. While she was in the residence in St. Lambert I would visit her often, she was so happy and grateful for the visits. I will always remember Florence for her friendship. I will miss her.........RIP Florence.

Aunty Flo always made me laugh when she told me that she used to have her brother's (Bob) photo on her desk during WWII. Her girlfriends would always ask if he was her boyfriend....when she said, "No, he's my brother"....they then wanted to meet him!
I remember Aunty Flo got a big kick out of this and when she retold this story to Jim and I, it was certainly good for a big laugh.
Aunty Flo will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

I have had the pleasure and honour of knowing Florence for many, many years which my luck!

Over the many years of working aside her at Smith Bros we had many laughs and tears which I missed when we parted ways to enjoy things..

I was so lucky to have been around with her even while I moved to Kingston.

I know she is now in a happy place with Ted, the Smiths along with friends I didn't know and enjoying herself....

Farewell Florence, until we met again.....

The lovely picnics at her house such treasured memories.
You are forever in our hearts Florence. We love you very much.

Since we were young children on Grant street with Jim, we always admired Florence’s garden and her warm welcome into her house. She was a good appreciated neighbour and a great human being. She will be remembered.

On behalf of my mother, my sister and my brother, our deepest sympathies to all the family.

Aunt Flo had a warm welcoming smile she shared with everyone. She would listen and comment and make suggestions that were helpful even when I didn't agree with them. Her garden was always beautiful when ever we managed our infrequent summer or early fall visits. Rest in peace and enjoy catching up with Uncle Ted.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. We look forward to sharing memories when we celebrate Aunt Flo's life hopefully later this year.
love Barbara and Michael.
