Between 1977 and 1992 they spent winters in South Texas where they enjoyed the warm weather and made many lasting friendships. In 1991 they retired to Morden, Manitoba where they recently celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary. Mom was always active in the community; she enjoyed church activities, teaching Sunday School, gardening and entering her handiwork in the local fairs. She will always be remembered for her unwavering spirit and determination. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who was always available to give advice and home baked goodies.

Dear Lloyd and Family;
We just wanted to let you know that Flora will be greatly missed. I know Ed will cherish his last vacation out west to visit all of you and has many fond memories especially the saskatoon berry pie!!
I may have never met Flora but have been told many wonderful stories about her and your visits here. I still cherish my little doily she sent home to me. I have it beside my bed on my dresser. So once again please accept our deepest sympathy on the passing of Flora, a great lady and wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. God be with all of you at this time. Love, Jodi, Doug and Ed Lowry
