She was born April 28, 1930 in Mentone, AL to the late Lodie and Hattie Brooks. Flo always put her family and close friends first in her life. She was an extremely hardworking and determined woman from working at the Florida Palms Mobile Home Park she owned and maintained to her passion working with the Edison Festival of Lights Parade for over 45 years – building award-winning floats for three generations of family members.

In her retirement years, she frequently traveled with family around the world – from Australia, to Europe, to Colorado, Hawaii, and Alaska. She was the glue that held her family together. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph in 2013; as well as her three sisters and two brothers. Flora is survived by her two children, Kathy S. Bright (Ronnie) of Fort Myers, FL and Bill Richards of Fort Myers, FL; one sister-in-law, Louise Brooks of Georgia; four grandchildren, Shawn, Morgan, Amber and Reid; two great grandchildren, Kayla and Brianna; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.
