She graduated from Little Flower Academy High School in 1938. Florence met and married Stanley Z. Mackewicz Sept. 25, 1947. Together they moved to San Francisco. There they opened Florence’s Café. After she had her first child, she stayed at home to raise her family.Florence worked various jobs as her children grew older. She greatly enjoyed positions where she met the public as she was very friendly and outgoing. Florence had a job at the University Mound Ladies Home as a nurse’s aid. She had always wanted to be a nurse and enjoyed working there.

She and Stan retired to Loyalton, Calif., in 1981 after their last child went to college.

In 2005, she moved to Crescent City to be near her daughter.
