I just learned of Flo’s passing. She was a sweet and kind lady.

Flo and my mother, Phyllis, were good friends on Brintell St in Pittsburgh. They gave birth to me & Marc on the same year. So I guess I’ve known Flo my entire life. As far back as I can remember she was the most interesting woman I’d ever met! She had big hair, wore lots of jewelry and always made me laugh. She called me “Jan”, which I loved!! As Marc & I grew up in different states our families would see one another about once a year but I always looked forward to those visits. I was fortunate to see Flo last year in Palm Springs after many many years (and Lou met her for the first time). As soon as I heard her voice a flood of memories came back to me and we had the loveliest time reminiscing. I will always remember her as “the coolest mom on Brintell St”. Lou & I send our heartfelt condolences and much love.

We loved Flo. She was so friendly & personable. She always remembered us from when we were kids growing up in Stanton Heights & swimming at Alpine Swim Club. She was a joy to have at our Seders the last several years. Our deepest sympathies to Bill, Marc, Joe, Keith, Beth, Alison & Harris. You were lucky to have her for so long.

Flo was such a dear friend of mine that I had the honor of being her hairstylist for too many years to count. We shared many family stories as well as friend stories. We loved her at the salon for many reasons but most of all her mind was sharp and never forgot week to week what we talked about and our gossip magazine she would read and knew current actors/actress\'s and talked about them as they were her friends. She always found the positive in people, movies, theater and restaurants. RIP my beautiful friend. I will celebrate us both August 8th
