IRWIN, Florence "Flo" of Tampa, FL passed away on October 31, 2021 at the age of 95. Florence was born on June 16, 1926 and spent the majority of her childhood in Burlington, Iowa-- where she met and married Robert F. Irwin in 1947. They shared sixty-four years together before Bob's death in 2012. Flo and Bob raised their three children: Anita, Marc and Joyce--first in Burlington and then in Galesburg, IL. Additionally, they enjoyed the lives of their five grandchildren's lives: Amy, Ellen, Kevin, Isaac, and Alan. Florence was deeply involved in her grandchildren's lives; cooking holiday treats, sewing costumes, and sharing with them the joys of nature. As a friend, Florence would always provide a tender heart and a warm embrace.
Florence is survived by Anita Aldus, Marc Irwin, and Joyce and Barry Karpay, her five grandchildren, and her two sisters, Shirley Mason and Gloria Scalici.
A private memorial service will take place among the family.
