  • Susan Foley

    Our parents friendship went back to square dancing in the fire hall. Flora and Joe road in the limo with mom and dad on their 50 th wedding anniversary and believe it or not your mom had a glass of champagne!
    After your dad passed my dad was on a campaign to get Flora to Sherwood Oaks…lucky for them she finally listened because she did so much for that place.
    If ever a person earned the right to complain about arthritis pain it was Flora yet she never did…always kind and gracious.
    I know she was very very proud of everyone of her kids even when they made purses out of Walmart bags!
    May she be Grand Slamming it in heaven with your dad and my parents.
    Sincerely,
    daughter of Gene and Betty Renckly…Susan
