Florence was the second child of fourteen brothers and sisters. She worked as a cook at the Terrell State Hospital and Red Colemans Deli. At the Deli she could choose her own hours because she made such good pies. Their door was always open to her. She raised a garden every year and would can surplus vegetables, berries and fruits. There was always plum jelly to be had. She loved children and reading her Bible. It was very important to her that her family be baptized and live right. Just like Geronimo, she had a strong will and would let you know what she thought and was strict in her beliefs. She often said that if its worth doing, its worth doing right. We will miss her driving force and love. Services will be held Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Goggans Funeral Home. Pastor Bill Coffey will officiate.
