Florence was a beautiful lady. She loved her children & all of grandchildren & great grandchildren.
I remember going to Florence's place with my parents (Joe & Mary Storozuk) for a visit, when we came to Winnipeg for our annual vacation. As we sat on her couch, I would listen to Florence & my parents talk about the times in Vita & Arbakka. I loved to hear all the stories.
Florence will be truly missed by so many.

Florence was a wonderful lady and part of our family for many, many years. Chris and I welcomed Florence into our home as our housekeeper when our 4 children were very young. Chris and Florence worked together to clean and organize our busy household for years. We all loved Florence as she had such an engaging smile and laugh, sense of humour, tons of energy and genuine love of us all. She always left our home sparking clean, fresh and ready for the next days of busy chaos. We loved Florence and always looked forward her coming.
Chris and I stayed in touch with Florence over the years and ended up living in the same seniors block in Fort Richmond for many years. Florence loved flowers and gardening. Everything was nicer and more beautiful with Florence’s touch.
We extend our sincere condolences to the Vermeulen family in the loss of your very precious Florence. She will be full of joy in heaven and be a loving angel there to everyone. We know she will connect with Chris in heaven as she made her way there on July 12, 2019. Mom is welcoming Florence with open arms❣️
With love and our sincere sympathy,
Murray Wade and children Brenda, Willa, Shawna and John.
