Florence was a proud graduate of the Toronto General Hospital School of Nursing, class of 1952. She nursed at the Old Almonte General Hospital before joining her husband as a partner in J. L. Virgin Insurance, a successful local general insurance firm until retiring in 1993.
Florence was an active volunteer serving on many church and community committees and boards but was especially proud of her time on the Almonte General Hospital Board and the T V Ontario board. She was a long time member of the I.O.D.E., Captain Hooper Chapter. Florence enjoyed many treasured days and nights at their cottage on White Lake in the company of her family and many friends.
