It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother.
Florence was born and raised on the family farm in Carmel SK where she developed her love for nature and the prairie. She moved to Edmonton in the early 1940s and worked for many years in the purchasing department of the Edmonton General Hospital. Florence and Bill were married in 1954 and lived in Riverdale before moving to St. Albert. Florence loved gardening, reading and walking along the trails of the river valley or going for drives in the country. She saw the beauty in the world around us and always saw the best in the people she knew and loved.
Florence is survived by her children: Judy (Al), and Michael (Susan); grandchildren: Amber, Aimee, Joshua, Justin and Stephen; sisters: Evelyn (Albert), and Annette (Wilf); and brother, Oswald (Lorna); sisters-in-law: Anita, Winnie, and Mildred; and brother-in-law, Herb; and numerous nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her husband, Bill; parents: Otto and Matilda Lutz; sisters: Elenore Lutz, Irene Kostyna and Leona Flanagan; brothers: Anthony and Ted Lutz; brother-in-law, Nick Wynnyk; and nieces: Carla Flanagan and Debra Menz.
