February 29, 1920 – February 2, 2019
It is with great sadness the family of Florence Blow announces her passing at Trinity Care Centre, Penticton. Florence was born in Alberta and moved to Chilliwack with her family at age 8 where she met and subsequently married Floyd in 1941. After WWII they moved to Victoria where they lived until retirement in 1974–moving to Penticton in 1975.
Florence’s homes were always characterized by boundless hospitality and filled with the tantalizing aromas of her baking. Everyone at Athens Creek Retirement Lodge will attest to Florence’s enjoyment of Bridge and cribbage.
Her smile would light up a room; she will be sorely missed but now Floyd’s “angel” is with him once more.
Florence is survived by her loving family, son William “Bill” Blow (Pat), daughter Darlene Belford (Rex); granddaughters Wilma (Geoff), Trisha, Kimberly (Sean); great grandchildren Dean and Addison-Marie and many more extended family members. Florence was predeceased by her husband Floyd, sisters Anne and Dorothy, brothers Fred, Art and Alex. Florence will be laid to rest beside Floyd at Hatley Memorial Gardens, Victoria, B.C. on May 31st at 2 pm followed by a Celebration of Life (location to be determined).
The family wishes to thank Dr. A. Dargie and the nurses and staff of Penticton Hospital and Trinity Care Centre for their exceptional care.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation (sosmedicalfoundation.com).
