Floris was our baby sitter for years. She would stay with us when ever our parents were out of town. She was a wonderful lady and very loved by by the Sieverding kids. I remember a story book we would make her read to us over and over.
Our prayers our with the family. Floris will be deeply missed.

Floriss was a wonderful women and a second mother to the Sieverdings of Garwin in our younger years. My deepest sympathy to her many friends and family.
Floriss was our favorite babysitter! Anyone who can handle 6 kids at a time is a very special person. She used to take us to Disney movies at the Orpheum. She will be missed!!
