Florence married Archie Harrison and moved to a farm near Saskatoon. This union was blessed with four children. Florence started a boarding house in Saskatoon. Florence loved the farm and worked very hard to provide a healthy life style for her children. She always planted large gardens and did many hours of preserving of vegetables and fruit. She also enjoyed sewing and sewed many outfits for her children. Later she moved to Calgary, AB. Here is where she began her career as a cook and cooked for various camps in Alberta. Florence also became a huge Calgary Flames fan and thoroughly enjoyed watching Theo Fleury play. Florence’s life consisted mainly of work which was out of necessity as many women did of her era. In 2010 Florence moved to Drake and enjoyed her time there doing crafts, playing card and visiting with friends.
