Howard, Florence

d Sept. 14, 2012

Florence M. Howard, a Vashon Island, Wash., resident since 1999, died peacefully on Sept. 14, 2012 after a lengthy illness. She was 93.

Born Florence Quist in Irwin City, she earned a degree in Public Health from UC Berkeley. She and Edwin L. Howard of Davis married in 1947, and in 1951 settled in Rye, N.Y., where they raised their five children.

Upon Ed’s retirement in 1977, they moved first to Davis then to a home they built in nearby Winters. Florence and Ed were members of the Pioneer Presbyterian Church, where Flo served as deacon, and volunteered her time to aid local “shut-ins.”

After Ed died in 1988 Florence continued to call Winters her home. In 1999 she moved to Vashon to be closer to two of her children. Those who were fortunate enough to have known Flo will forever remember her warmth, kindness, modesty, and selfless dedication to others.

Florence is survived by her five children, Anne C. Cotton, Walter Q. Howard, Jane O. Howard, Roger D. Howard and Edwin L. (“Edson”) Howard Jr., as well as 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Remembrances may be sent to Vashon Community Care Center, Vashon, WA., where Flo received superior care and love from the Skilled Nursing staff during her illness. A Celebration of Life is planned for Summer 2013, in California.
