Since she was a young girl Florence loved to sing in the church choir at Oak Grove Baptist Church. She sang and played the piano until her voice would not let her. She traveled a lot when she was employed by Sinbad Crafts and Plants, and the tales she told of her travels and said it was fun except for the loading and unloading.
