Survivors include a Brother: Terry Dalton & wife Carol, Elizabethton. Several nieces & nephews. Her Brothers-In-Law; Josh Allen & wife Emogene, and Hunter Allen. Her special friends: Betty Greene, Betty Chambers and the Young at Heart Ladies Sunday School Class.
We feel truly blessed to have shared our lives with Flo. She often would say that she had three adopted children, Suzanne Berry, Peggy Nave & Joel Crips. We were taught many valuable lessons from Flo. She taught us how to be content and gracious and enjoy the simple things that life brings.
Her hands were never idle and she was so happy to make lap quilts to those in need. One of her favorite things to do was to hand out the red, white & blue quilts to the Veterans at VA Center. She would also take quilts to the Ivy Hall Nursing Home and would love seeing the patients faces wherever they were given their quilt. Moma-Flo will truly be missed but loved forever.
