Born and raised in central Oregon, Florence graduated from Redmond High School in 1951.
As a teenager, she worked as bank teller and was a finalist in the Miss Redmond beauty pageant. She was a catch.
On June 15, 1952, she married J.H. Bones of Brownsville, Oregon.
Florence devoted her life to raising a family and making a home. She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, golfing, traveling, and baking. She was blessed with an artistic eye which inspired her painting and drawing.
