On June 29, 1946, she was united into marriage to Robert Meyer. Together they resided on the family farm near Waltham for 69 years where they raised four children. Florence was an active member of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church of Waltham and a member of the ladies aid. She loved music, traveling and flowers — being particularly partial to the moss roses she grew for many years. Her greatest joy was the time she spent with her eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Her greatest comfort was rooted in her unwavering faith.
