Florence married Edward Fahrenbruch, April 2, 1967 in Greeley.
Florence attended high school in Stockton, KS. She spent many years working in the cafeterias at Platte Valley Elementary and North Colorado Medical Center. She also worked in the Old America Framing Department. She loved volunteering at the Union Colony Civic Center, where she made many special friends. Her all-time favorite “job” was as daycare for her great-nephew, JJ. She was proud to dedicate four years to his care, and they built an unbreakable bond.
Her greatest passion was spending time with family, attending every possible event. She adored spending time with granddaughter, Blake, getting her hair and nails done. She was on the Advisory Board of the Grand Choice Club, where she was able to travel and take many trips to Black Hawk. She rarely missed Bingo night at the Moose Lodge, where she was a member for many years.
