    My thoughts and prayers are with Flory’s entire family. She offered me my first official job and taught me so much. I’m thankful for everything she taught me and the time she shared with me. She had a huge impact on my life as a strong woman and entrepreneur. I have so many wonderful memories of my time at Florentine’s!

    I first met Florrie when I was working at Moorhead State Bank. On my lunch hours and after work I would go down to visit with her and look at the new items that came in. We would always have a great time talking and sharing, she made me feel like I was a very special person to her. I always believed I was. I am so sorry to learn of her passing but I know she will be a blessing to God.

    Such a vibrant personality who made everyone who walked into her store feel special. Flory will be missed.

  11. Bev Adams says:

    Flory was a Mom to me when I needed it the most. She had endured so many trials in her life however that never diminished the capacity she had to love others even if they were complete strangers. I hope that I was able to return that love to her when she needed it the most. I will miss running across the deck to visit her or sitting underneath the patio sharing her favorite Paradise drink. She told me not to be sad but to think of her every time I saw a butterfly flittering by. I will truly miss her.
