Florence Elvena Hodgins

It is with great sadness that the family of Florence Hodgins announces her peaceful passing May 25, 2011 at the age of 86.

Florence was born in Sunshine Bay, the youngest child of Eli and Florence Slako. She spent most of her life in Sunshine Bay, Ymir and Nelson. She met her husband William Hodgins in Ymir and was married in Spokane, Washington in 1947. William and Florence had three children; two sons and a daughter.

Florence retired in 1987 from the Provincial Government where she worked for the BC Building Corporation. In retirement she was actively involved with the BC Government Retirees Assn. and the IODE Thrift Shop.

Florence was ahead of her time, recycling and eating organic foods before it was common practice. She loved animals and always had a cat or two.

Florence was predeceased by her parents Eli and Florence, her husband William in 1961, her daughter Kathleen in 2001, her brother John Slako in 1993, her sister Mickey Pease in 1970 and her sister Nellie Voykin.

Florence is survived by her sons Brian (Laura) and Victor (Doralynne) Hodgins; her four grandchildren Steven Hodgins, Jennifer (Teran) Booth, William and Richard Hodgins; her four great grandchildren Drew and Ella Booth, Keenan and Kael Hodgins and numerous nephews, nieces and loving friends.

Internment and a celebration tea will be held at a later date.
