1911 ~ 2004

Our sweet, beautiful, loving, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend was reunited with her beloved husband, Henry Timmerman, on Thursday, March 25, 2004, at the age of 92. She passed away peacefully at the home of her daughter, Sandy, in Springville, Utah. She was "sent off" by many family members as she went on to reunite with loved ones who had gone on before.

Florence was born June 18, 1911, in Ogden, Utah, to Gustave Hjalmar Anderson and Angelika (Angie) Berlinda Ingeborg Lindegren. Her mother died when Florence was just six years old, and for three years she lived with her wonderful Swedish great-grandma "Mormor" and dear great Aunt Sophie and Uncle Carl Cederstrom who adored her as their own. Her father's sweet second wife, Mary Lindgren, finished raising her along with her sister and brothers. Florence was sealed to Henry Timmerman on December 18, 1933 in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with five children: Richard (deceased as a toddler); Jean (Clarence) Osguthrope of Delta, Utah; Cheryl (William Nicholson--Cheryl died in 1987; Marsha is now another daughter); Sandra (Steven) Watrous, Springville, Utah; and Lynette (Brent) Hardy of West Jordan, Utah. At the time of her death Florence and Henry had 25 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren. Florence is survived by her sister and brothers, Edythe Day of Williston, Florida; Herbert Anderson of Fresno, California; and Alvin Anderson of Pasadena, CA; She is preceded in death by her brothers Harold, Clarence and Arnold.

Florence will be remembered for her humble, gentle and caring ways; for her quick wit and sense of humor; her adventuresome spirit; her remarkable patience; and for her cheerfulness, positive attitude, and genuine gratitude for every little thing to the end of her life. These qualities made her a joy to be around and to care for in her later years. She will also be remembered for her unwavering faith in the Lord and her submission in all things to His will. Central to her life is prayer, her love for her Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ, her love of the scriptures and her testimony of the restored gospel and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Throughout her life she has had an unfaltering adherence to its principles and ordinances and a willingness and commitment to share her testimony with others.

Florence and Henry filled a full-time LDS Mission in Georgia from 1980-1981. She has also had a life-long drive to find her ancestors and provide them with the temple work necessary to enjoy all that she enjoys. She loved attending the temple and knew her priorities!

Florence loved life. She loved all people. She treasured relationships and was always a peacemaker. She cherished family and friends and reached out to strangers. Florence and Henry had a way of "adopting" others into their hearts and into their family. She relished the beauty of God's creations. She loved beautiful music and nature. She worked hard to make her own little yard of stewardship beautiful.

We express deep gratitude to her neighbors, many friends and family who have served and loved her so well. We also greatly appreciate the wonderful care and support of Health Care Odyssey (hospice) during her last few weeks. Her radiant example will always be remembered by those she has touched and loved.
