Florence Mohler Ramsey

October 27, 1936March 20, 2020

Florence Mohler Ramsey, 83, departed this life on March 20, 2020, surrounded by her family. Florence was born October 27, 1936 to William ‘Bill’ and Dollie T. Mohler of Afton, Va. A lifelong resident of Nelson County, Florence spent her youth helping her Aunt and Uncle (Ethel and Saylor Fitzgerald) establish the Greenfield Pentecostal Church. Florence graduated Rockfish Valley High School in 1954 before becoming an accountant for Morton Frozen Foods, from where she retired after 42 years of service.

A loving and devoted family woman, Florence was always willing to listen to a problem or give counsel when needed. Generous and loyal, Florence was soft-spoken and kind. “Only share the good things.”, was her motto and advice throughout her life.

Sundays at Florence’s house were a ritual for many. Family, friends and neighbors would stream in steadily throughout the day for coffee, conversation and a generous helping of laughter.

Florence’s legacy of commitment to family and community will live for generations.

In addition to her parents, Florence was preceded in death by her brothers Kenny, Lewis, and Sailor Mohler. Surviving is her husband John Elledge, Sr., siblings Alice Tannehill and Henry (Veronica) Mohler; daughters Janet (Alan) Dickie and Shelby (John) Bruguiere, her grandchildren Richard (Adele) Anderson, Kyle (Lauren) Hughes, Alexander Ralston, Sallie and Michael Bruguiere, her great grandchildren Zachary and Elliott Anderson, as well as cherished nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family members.

After Florence’s celebratory service in Autumn, Florence will rest at the Greenfield Pentecostal Church, ensuring she will always be able to keep an eye on things from atop her hill.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Greenfield Pentecostal Church, 7981 Rockfish Valley Hwy, Afton, VA 22920.

Arrangements will be provided by Reynolds Hamrick Funeral Homes, Waynesboro, Va.
