She and Stan retired to Loyalton, Calif., in 1981 after their last child went to college. Florence didn’t much like the country life after being a city girl for so long, but she made many friends and grew to love the area. Florence especially liked shopping in Reno, Nev., where she and her friends would often go. She spent lots of time in her garden making it exceptionally beautiful. In 2005, she moved to Crescent City to be near her daughter.
She was preceded in death by her husband Stanley Sr. and son Martin and all her brothers and sisters.
She is survived by her children and their families. Stanley Z. Jr. and Kathryn Mackewicz of Belmont, Calif.; Stephen J. Mackewicz of Greenbrae, Calif., and Sandra and William Anderson of Crescent City. Grandchildren Amy, Sara, Kelly, Jesse, Martin, Alexander and Joseph.
Memorial Mass will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church on Wednesday, May 21, at 2 p.m.
