July 9, 1940 Consort, AB – May 20th, 2021 Colwood, BC
She was a prairie girl who loved the ocean, a best friend to any animal she met, a fiercely loving, protective and supportive Mother, and a lover of desserts of any variety. Flo, as she was known to all, was kind and generous, quick to laugh, had a smile that would light up a room, and always one to join in. Her parents, Leo and Lydia, had nine children who were all raised on the family farm in Brownfield, AB. Flo loved the farm and her happiest times were spent riding horses to collect the stray cattle. She left the farm after finishing school and moved to the big city of Edmonton where she eventually married and had three children. She loved raising her children and was active as a coach for Brenda’s winning baseball team along with coaching Doug and Wayne’s hockey teams. She was also Brown Owl for many years for Brenda’s Brownie pack. She thoroughly enjoyed traveling with her life partner Pat, and after his passing, continued travelling with Brenda. Flo always enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, curling bonspiels, crafts of all kinds, and of course the aforementioned desserts! She was beautiful and funny, and though Alzheimer’s disease had nibbled away at her memory for the past ten years, her amazing soul remained intact.
Florence passed away suddenly and painlessly on May 20, 2021 at the Priory Care Home in Colwood, BC. She is preceded by her life partner Pat McNamara, her parents Leo and Lydia Maron and her Sister Ruth. Flo is survived by her daughter Brenda of Colwood, BC, her son Doug and his wife Melisa of Edmonton, AB (and their children Dante and Kaley), and her son Wayne and his partner Sue of Vernon, BC (and his daughters Falun and Schalyn). Flo is also survived by her siblings Irene Guy & her husband Ken, Laureen Schmidt, Richard Maron & his wife Gloria, Donald Maron & his wife Linda, Doris Maron, Elizabeth Whitelock, and Vernon Maron & his wife Terry. Flo was much loved by her family and friends and will be deeply missed by all that knew her.
A celebration of life will take place at Red Willow Community Centre near Stettler, AB on August 14th, 2021. Donations to your local Alzheimer’s society in lieu of flowers would be appreciated.
