Florence was born at home in Varick on May 17, 1919, a daughter of the late Charles Wilford and Elnora (Worden) Lisk. She graduated from Romulus High School in 1939. A member of the Romulus Grange since 1933, Florence transferred her membership to the Ovid Grange in 1943, and then the Interlaken Grange in 1992. In 1931 she became a member of the Romulus Presbyterian Church, alter transferring in 1993 her membership to the Ovid Federated Church. An avid reader, she was a self-proclaimed “bookaholic.” When not reading she was baking all kinds of wonderful cookies, pies and cakes. Florence took great pride in her family and the relationships with her children, grandchildren, and friends brought her great joy.

Creswell, David (Charlene) Creswell, Edwin (Chandra) Theetge, and Doug (Adrianne) Theetge; great grandchildren Shawn Creswell, Robert, Nicholas, Aliza, and Hudson Theetge.
