Florence was raised in South Boston and like many of her era left the city for the suburbs with her husband Fred to raise their family.
She worked for more than 25 years at Marconi’s in Ashland where she made many lasting friendships. She rarely passed up a game of Bingo or a trip to Foxwoods, and enjoyed a night of cards with the girls and long walks with friends.

She is survived by her children, Susan (McNeil) Haskell & her husband James of Tewksbury, Joan Tibbert of Framingham, and Steve & his wife Donna of Framingham, her grandchildren, Chad Tibbert & his wife Michelle of Sudbury, Michael McNeil & his wife Kerrie-Lynn of Framingham, Chris & his wife Jade of CA, Eric of Westborough, and Alexandra of CA, her great-granddaughters, Sabrina and Bianca Tibbert, and Kylie and Kaitlyn McNeil, and many nieces and nephews.
Besides her husband Frederick, Florence was predeceased by her siblings, Warren Chamberland, Francis Chamberland, and Mary Brady.
