Date: February 3rd 2024

The Ladies of The GALA enjoyed sharing the years that Flora was a member. We knew her as kind, considerate and fun. For many years she shared a card group with Dina, Susie, Martha, Anne and Mary Lou at each other’s homes. She and Dominic attended many great events at the GAC which were wonderful especially because they were hosted by their great family. We extend our deepest sympathy to all of you. May she rest in peace.

I worked with your mother at Battelle. She was simply top notch, so easy to work with and pretty funny. We enjoyed teasing one another almost daily. Please accept my condolences, I know she will be missed.

It is with much sadness to learn of the passing of Flo. Over the past 43 years we have thought often about Flo and the fact that she helped to bring us together. Had not been for Flo telling Jackie of an opening in the Economics Department at BMI Columbus, we probably never would have gotten together. Now after 43 years and 34 years of married life we think fondly of Flo and the happiness that we share.
