Florence O.

In 1941, they took over the family farm from John's grandparents on Old State Line Road.  As a farmer's wife, Florence helped till the land and plant and harvest crops, while all along raising their two children, Delores and Doyle.  Her husband, John, died of cancer in the fall of 1965 at the age of 58.  Although she didn't farm after that, she supported her family as a seamstress and altered many garments for her friends and neighbors.

Florence was a 75-year member of the Order of the Eastern Star-Fulton Chapter and long time member of Trinity United Methodist Church.

Florence will be remembered as a hard worker, and will be missed by her daughter, Delores (Tom) Camp; son, Doyle (Linda) Drennan; 6 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; siblings, Dorothy Bunde, Hallie Mitchell, Doris Grill, Reata Fox and Marvin Butz; as well as several niece and nephews.

Besides her husband, Florence was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Harry Butz, Wayne Butz, Sr. and sister, Betty Simpson.

Family and friends may visit Thursday, September 14th from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton (419.826.2631), where an Eastern Star Service will begin at 7:30 p.m.  Funeral services will be held Friday, September 15th at 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home with Pastor J.T. Bean officiating.  Interment will follow at Sharples Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of the donor's choice.

There's no words to describe what Florence meant to me. I LOVED taking care of her and just spending time with her. When she moved to the assisted living I would go visit with her while I got my coffee in the morning. I love you, Florence. .you were family to me! To her family, I hope that I did you proud while I was working there for your mom. I'm so sorry for your loss. Much love!

Aunt Florence was always such a kind and sweet woman. She was my grandmother's (Hallie's) older sister and never failed to show up for family gatherings or send cards when she was able. She was so incredibly supportive of family and one of the most loving women I've ever known. To her immediate family, I am so very sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed. We wish we could be there for the service, but we no longer live in Ohio. I am hoping that my grandmother is able to make the visitation. God bless.

Sending my deepest condolences to the family. Florence was such a nice woman. She did alterations for me for years and I always enjoyed visiting with her. She was so proud of her grandchildren and great grandchildren and would always show me any new pictures she had and I loved seeing how they grew over the years. I will always miss her!
