I was very sorry to learn of Aunt Florence's passing. Although I have not seen her in recent years, my Mom kept the rest of the family up to date with news from the "Round Robin" letter that she, Aunt Florence and other members of the Ellison clan have kept going all these years.
I know that words are inadequate in times of tragedy but I hope that Judy, Robin and their families can find some comfort in the happy memories they have of their mom.
Best Wishes to all,
I was very sad to hear about the passing of Florence. I met Florence back in Jan-Feb97 when we visited Seattle. She immediately welcomed me into the family. We went shopping, ate at her favorite restaurant (had the best claim chowder!) and numerous talks. I felt a special connection with her and we continued to stay in touch over the years. The fondest memory of her was when she came down to AZ to visit and played w/our girls @ the playground when they were small....she climbed up the monkey bars and went down the slide w/them. I was amazed how active and youthful she was w/the girls and truly admired her spirit. I will forever cherish our moments together, she was a very special lady. Sophia, Olivia and I send our heartfelt condolences to the family.
- Love, Angie Nordlie (Sophia and Olivia)
All my condolences. She was such a wonderful person. I always enjoyed seeing her. Much love to all of you. Bill Nordlie
Your mom was a wonderful woman, I enjoyed my many years of working with her, and considered her a friend first, as well as a client. I will miss our visits. Sending you all love and compassion! Maureen Gummersall
