Mrs. Florence Evelyn Johnson, late of
Maplewood House, passed away peacefully on January 17, 2008 at the age of 95 years at Abbotsford, BC. She was
born on January 10, 1913 in Prince Rupert, BC.
She is survived by daughters Patsy Norgaard (Danny) of Abbotsford and Marion Broadbent (Jim) of Summerland,
grandsons Derrold Norgaard of Victoria and Chris (Thuy)
Broadbent of Edmonton, granddaughters Carleen Chandler (Keith) of Abbotsford, Mariette Kramer of Summerland and Debbie David of Surrey. She is also
survived by great grandsons Brandon, Tyler and Ryan and great granddaughters Channel, Sarah, Asia, Sydney and
Moira. Florence was predeceased by husband Jerrold
Johnson, son Larry Johnson, grandson Dale Norgaard and sisters Marjorie and Betty. Flo (Nanny) was a Vanderhoof pioneer and lived there until she moved to Abbotsford to
be closer to her family in 1987. She loved gardening and traveling to various parts of the world with her daughters
and their families. Flo was always hoping to hit the big one on the Lotto or scratch tickets but she had to be happy with the win on her 90th birthday. The family would like to give thanks to the caring staff of the Maplewood House and to all the nieces, nephews, extended family and especially the very special friends who visited her during her stay at the home.
A memorial service was held on Thursday, January 24, 2008 at 2:00 pm from Henderson’s Fraser Valley Funeral
Home, 34537 Marshall Road, Abbotsford. Interment of her ashes will be held in Vanderhoof later in the summer when the sky is blue and the flowers are blooming.
