Florence was one of the great welcoming faces of Bodega Bay and had become a tourist destination in her own right. People loved to come to Bodega Bay and see Florence! She warmly welcomed visitors to Local Color Art Gallery, often offering her best tips for other Bodega Bay attractions.
She was an avid reader, keenly interested in contemporary topics, loved talking about art and truly loved painting and artists. She was always encouraging in her critiques of other's work and supportive of their efforts. She was a local treasure and will be missed.
