Griffin, Floreen Mary Elizabeth (née Bull)
Died peacefully on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at Sunset Manor, Collingwood at the age of 94. Beloved wife of the late Wally (2011). Loving mother of the late David (2017) and his wife Barbara, and Mary and her husband Fred. Cherished “Ma” of Erick and Matt. Predeceased by her brother, Stanley (1944), and sister, Donna (2018). Floreen was born in Bracebridge and worked in Toronto after high school. She soon met Wally (on a blind date!) and they married in 1948. After living for a few years in Port Credit, they moved to Willowdale, where for 16 years, she was the beloved secretary at Forest Grove United Church. After she and Wally retired in 1980, they expanded their ski cottage into a two-storey home and moved permanently to Brock’s Beach on Georgian Bay, where they enjoyed many years of curling, United Church activities in Stayner, suppers with friends, bonfires on the beach and euchre parties. She cherished her time with her grandsons. Her cookies, squares and pies (made with handpicked berries) were the best! Floreen’s gentle, sweet, selfless and generous spirit will be remembered by all who knew her. A Memorial Service will be held at Centennial United Church, 234 William Street, Stayner on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 11 o’clock. Reception to follow. Interment Stayner Union Cemetery. Donations may be made to Centennial United Church or the Canadian Wildlife Federation.

I always enjoyed chatting with Floreen when I visited my own mom at Blue Mountain Manor. She had a sweet and gentle smile. She enjoyed knowing I also lived in Virginia, like her own Mary. She will be missed. Love, Mary Mapel

I was so sorry to learn of Floreen's death and thank you Mary for letting me know about it. Wally and Floreen were great friends of my late husband Bill. ( I believe he took credit for the blind date that introduced them.) They welcomed me as a friend as well and I have many memories of happy times at Brock's Beach with them both. She lived a long and happy life and may you take comfort from knowing that and how much she loved her family. Janet Myers
