6 Tributes for “Florence “Flossie” Christiansen

    Dear Amber & family,
    My condolences on the loss of your Mother. What a lovely lady & how blessed you’ve been to have her in your life for so many years.

    Flossie was such a cool lady, such an important, lively part of the neighborhood! She always had a smile on her face and I remember her walking to work and the post office and she was just always out and about. Flossie and Mrs. Sarasin taught my mom and I to play Canasta. She told the funniest stories, one time telling me about how “polluted” she and my Grandma Ina were. She will be missed!

    Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I would be there but I am away on vacation. She was such a sweet lady.

    Amber our heartfelt condolences in the passing of your dear Mom. She certainly was a joy to so many people. I always remember the stories my Mom shared of them working together. They had so much fun. I’m sure it made their hard work light.
