After many years of dating and good times together Florence married Michael Francis in 1996. Flo and Mike loved to travel and go on adventures together visiting Put-N-Bay, Wisconsin, Indiana, State Fairs, Reds games, Country concerts, zoos and aquariums. They enjoyed taking a couple of cruises together also. Mike preceded her in death in 2010.

Florence “Flo” or “Fuzz” as she was often called loved to make people laugh. She is remembered often in family stories cracking a joke and making her silly crazy expressions. Florence was a hard worker, she got her first job at LoRae Hamburger Shop at age 16 and continued working until her retirement. She worked several years at Orr Felt and Fripps Fiber, Troy, OH. She also worked at Pizza Hut, Piqua, with her husband Mike. Florence had many children (the four-legged kind) over the years. She was an avid animal lover and took the best care of them. Over the years, she had many hobbies, including crocheting, painting, and playing the mandolin. She loved spending time watching and playing sports, fishing, and playing a wide variety of games with family.
Florence is survived by her brothers Terry (Dorothy) Maxon, Bill (Margaret) Maxon, and sister-in-laws Marianna Dulin, and Jeanette Maxon. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews. As well as her beloved four-legged children Katie, Bandit, and Emmie who will be well cared for by family. Florence was proceeded in death by her brothers Lawrence Maxon (her twin brother), Harley Dulin, Thomas Maxon, Robert Maxon, and sister Carolyn Maxon.

Until we see you again we will miss you Aunt Fuzz and Sister Flo. We love you!
