She met her loving husband of 63 years, James Gibson, in London where they fell in love dancing to Glen Miller at Wonderland Gardens and The Stork Club. They were very social throughout their lives and enjoyed many road trips with friends in one of Dad's cars that he loved. Florence was a country girl at heart but she loved the bright lights of a party too. She was most content surrounded by family and friends and enjoyed many happy days living and raising a family in both Calgary and London. She also helped entertain many close friends and family at the cottage in Grand Bend and the condo in Destin, Florida. Mom took wonderful care of the family, always ready with a meal, a glass of wine, a loving word of encouragement "� whatever was needed.
