Florance M Walls

(Sep 28, 1925 to Jan 19, 2011)

It was once noted that a woman should be two things: classy and fabulous. Florence was both. She always dressed her best and her home was impeccably clean. Always known for her reliability, she was fast to help others. Her Buick often doubled as a bus when she was taking her friends to their doctor appointments. And although she loved her job with McMillan in Riverside, she thought nothing of leaving it when her mother took ill. Always ready to fill her home with guests, come the holiday season she hosted dinner not once, but twice, at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. When it came to music, Dean Martin should have been the head of the Rat Pack and Elvis was always King. The only thing Florence loved more was Scotties, her home was not complete without one.rnFlorence is the wife of the late Thomas O. Walls, who passed away in 1978. She is survived by her children: Diana Gibson of Delanco and Thomas Walls (Sharon) of Riverside, her grandson Thomas, Jr. of North Carolina, her 3 great-grandchildren: Ariana, Ashley and Thomas Walls, III, her step-great-grandson Donovan Saltzman of Riverside, her brother Carl Smith (Donna) of Arizona and her dearest friend and loving companion Pierre Aubert of Riverside.rnCome celebrate Florenceā€™s 85 wonderful years Thursday from 10 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside where the service will be at 11 AM. Interment Monument Cemetery, Beverly. rn

    Dearest Diana,rnI am so sorry to hear about your mom. I can remember when we were in school and going to your house. She was always so nice. I know you will miss her terribly but she will always be with you in your heart.

    Dear Aunt Diana: I’m so very sorry to hear about your mother. She truly was a classy, caring lady. I remamber so many wonderful things about her. It makes me smile when I think of her and Sambo, Tabatha and Samson’s son! She would tell us the funniest stories of that cat! What a beautiful lady she was. I love you Aunt Diana. I’ll keep you and T.K. in my prayers. Love, Pamela

    To Mrs. Walls loved ones: I am so very sorry about your loss. I had the pleasure of cleaning Mrs. Walls teeth for quite a few years. She was really such a great lady and I always looked forward to having her in my chair and chatting away. She spoke so lovingly about her family and her little “scottie” dog. I hope that you can find comfort and peace in your wonderful memories. I will remember her fondly.
