Our heartfelt condolences to the O’Neill families… Florence was one of my “favorite” cousins as I remember that she sat me on her knee during a (wedding?) dance… when I was quite young…I remember Florence as a fun, gentle soul… now among the angels. Love to you all, Annette & Alan in Vernon

Blessings to my dear cousins as you deal with the loss of your mom. I have such great memories of Flo – my mom’s baby sister. Her humor, fairness, and love of her family will remain with with me forever.

From: Bryan and Pat Ede
Relation: Nephew

To all of Flo’s children, grandchildren, sisters, cousins, other relatives and friends. I am so very sorry for the sudden death of Flo and for your great loss. Flo, and Earl, were much loved, and will be fondly remembered, by us. We will think of them both often, remembering Bryan’s family trips to the Island with Muriel, and then with his own family, their family trips to Calgary, their always present smiles, and the many laughs we had with them, and shared with many of you. Although we are all very saddened by Flo’s passing, we hope that you are comforted by the great memories you have of Flo and Earl, and the unconditional friendship and love they so readily shared with us all.

Dear loved ones… our hearts are with you. I have such fond memories of Auntie Flo… her laugh, her fun playful spirit, loving & accepting. She will be missed. We will carry her with us always in our hearts and memories. Sending love to you all! xo

From: Muriel Ede
Relation: Sister

I am thinking of the O’Neills, friends and family, on the shocking news of the passing of Flo. I will really miss my sister. Some of my favourite memories of Flo were during holiday times and our annual trips to the Island, when Flo, Earl, the O’Neill kids, my boys and I had many laughs. Good times were had. Such great times with Flo will be missed, but remembered with love. I am very sorry for the loss to all of you, but keep remembering your own many good times with Flo. Love, Muriel Ede.

First met Florence in 1981 when I purchased the pharmacy.
She was the steadying influence in an uncertain time when running a business was not exactly without stress.Her calm demeanor and support allowed it to eventually succeed..It was a pleasure to know her!I I will always remember her saying to me “Glen,slow down and have a glass of wine when you get home.”My condolences to the family” Glen
