    Sorry so late with this but I just learned Florence had passed away. I met Flo many years ago at the roller skating building. She was one of the first persons I got to know. She was kind, friendly and always had a smile.

  2. Janet Paul Rice says:

    I was so saddened to learn of Flo’s death. Only Flo could make going to the dry cleaners an errand I actually enjoyed. I am sure many other regular customers will miss her as much as I will.
    Sincere sympathy to your family.

    Flo will be missed. She always went that extra mile for her customers and made us feel like family. That is a rare thing in the world today, and I really appreciated it. Rest in peace Flo – your work here is done.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Flo at Camelot. She was a great lady and she really liked to visit, so sometimes it would take a half hour to get out of the store after my shift. Flo was a sweet heart and I hope my Dad and Kym get to meet her in heaven. God will open his arms for her and will keep her safe.

    I was so sad today when I read the paper and saw Flo’s obituary. She was the reason I went to the Camelot in north Fargo. She was the only one who knew what to do with my crocheted items. I so trusted Flo.
    If my husband was with me, he knew he would have a little ‘wait’ in the car as Flo and I would talk. She was so easy to talk to and it was obvious she cared 100% about her customers.
    She would see me come in and go and get my item before I even asked. How she remember me among all her customers just tells me…she made it her business to care.
    We could learn so much from Flo. We could learn so much from her customer service.
    Even though we only met via Camelot, I consider her one of my ‘soulmates’ on this earth. She was even talking of volunteering with me at the gift shops at Sanford Hospitals.
    She was always glad to see me, but I know I wasn’t a special customer. She was glad to see any customer.
    It is how I know that on March 3rd – our dear Lord was glad to see Flo.

    God Bless the life of Flo Kruger. My life is better for having known her.

    Fargo I am so sorry to hear about Flo’s passing. As one of her long-time customers at Camelot, I always looked forward to visiting with her AND I almost never went to the store unless she was working. She spoke very highly of her family and you can all be proud that your mother/grandmother was such a phenomenal person.
