Beloved wife of the late Thomas White.
Loving mother of Daniel (JoAnna), Mark (Kathy), Scott (Suzanne), and Candace (Kent) Peterson.
Proud grandmother of Benjamin, Maggie, Kara, Mariah, Katie, and Kelly.
Dear sister of the late Harry (Elaine), Dorothy (Fred), Robert (June), Marilyn (Joseph), Jack (Georgia), and Carol (David).
Caring aunt of many.
While she was a diehard Bears and Cubs fan, her grandchildren were her pride and joy. Nothing brought her more satisfaction than a day spent with them or sharing a simple conversation. She loved being “Gram” and she took it seriously.
She pioneered as a full-time working mother in the late 50’s and persevered as a rising businesswomen for decades. She pursued and obtained her college degree after she’d had her four children. Flo worked and directly supported growth of independent companies before starting her own.
In “retirement” she found new inspiration in crafting. This ambition was to fill time and provide an outlet, yet it quickly became all business and kept her incredibly busy, looking forward and traveling.
Always active Flo enjoyed summering up north at her cabin in Hayward, WI, reading, attending church, hosting family events, casino time, watching her teams and being with her family and many lifelong friends.
She will be missed by all.
