Our prayers to all of Flo's family, friends and loved ones. We have so many good memories shared with Flo & Jimmy over the past 55+ years. May GOD accept her into His loving heart and arms and grant her an eternal life as a member of the family of GOD, in Heaven. Rest in peace, knowing that you are loved by so many family, friends and loved ones.

Flo was my friend, and even though we had different tastes in things like music (she liked Barbara Streisand and I like anything country); and she loved to read stuff like the Wall Street Journal and I'm a fiction mystery buff; we still had a lasting friendship. We met Flo and Jimmy at BASF where the four of us worked, and stayed in tough thereafter. Flo was smart and unassuming, but mostly just a good friend. We will miss her.

Flo was a fun person to be with. Also, she was a great cheerleader at South Park High School. Flo's passing truly saddens our hearts.

Dear Layne, I knew your mom as a teenager at SPHS and always thought she was so pretty and lived her life with grace. Her smile could light up a room. My thoughts have been with you and the girls. May God ease your grief with beautiful memories.

Dear Peggy and family, my prayer for you all is each tear you shed in grieving your tremendous loss, in time be replaced ten fold with precious joy filled memories of times shared. God bless you all in your healing journey. Love, Linda

I felt such deep sadness upon hearing that Flo had passed away. She was a beautiful lady that always showed much kindness and grace. I know my husband (Paul Allen) thought the world of Flo, and considered her a special friend. The Velsicol/Sandoz/BASF family had such special connections and caring for one another. I know she will be missed by family and many friends.
