Florence “Flo” Easley: 1928-2005
Flo Easley died Oct. 2, 2005, at The Memorial Hospital in Craig. She was 77. Her last hours were spent with family and friends.
Flo was born Sept. 3, 1928, in Orlando, Fla., to Richard and Margaret McKee.
Flo was raised with her three sisters, Elsie Evans, Kay Ellsworth, and Netti Chapman. She was the mother of four children Dick (Elaine) Jeannerett of Baggs, Wyo., Paula (Dick) Sadvar of Craig, Randy (Teri) Reno of Craig, and Elsie (Gary) Greenich of Galt, Calif. She loved playing cards with her friends, doing crossword puzzles, reading books until late at night, eating chocolate and playing Scrabble with her family. She fed the birds daily and enjoyed the great outdoors her entire life. She liked to camp, fish and arrowhead hunt at Browns Park. This is where her cremations will be placed on Easter 2006 during a family ceremony so she can rest with her husband, John, her mother, Peggy, and her sister Kay. While in Craig, Flo worked for 7-11, Safeway and Signal Hill. She lived with her husband, John, at the Adobe Village until his death in 1991. She made many friends and will be remembered for her knowledge of words and her wittiness to use them. She seemed to always make us laugh.
No services were held at her request. A family dinner was given at the VFW where Rhonda Higgins sang beautifully Flo’s favorite song, “The Old Rugged Cross” and Devyn Reece read an original poem in her honor. The family then enjoyed hours of stories and the viewing of her collection of photos of when they were young.
Flo is survived by her two sisters, Elsie Evans and Netti Chapman, as well as her four children. Flo will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Dianna (Jack) Cobb, Lonnie (Christina) Jeannerett, Jan (Todd) Reece, Rich (Nancy) Sadvar, John Reno, Jason Reno, Ryan (Ashley) Reno, Levi Terrill, Ashley Greenich, and Trevor Greenich, her great grandchildren, other family and friends.
Flo was preceded in death by her loving husband, John Easley, her mother, Peggy Cox, her sister Kay Ellsworth, and her granddaughter Kelly Jeannerett.
To love abundantly is to live abundantly. To love forever is to live forever.
