Florence Holsinger

Obit Florence HolsingerFlorence Edith Holsinger passed away peacefully Dec. 18, 2013 in Tooele. Florence was born in Fairhope, Ohio, May 2, 1923, the daughter of Harry McKinley Herrick and Edith Pauline (Mock) Herrick. She attended the Chicago Art Institute in New York City where she met and later married Dick L. Holsinger (divorced). She joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1966 in South Bend, Ind. She loved the many opportunities to serve that her membership afforded throughout her life. Her service included Laurel Advisor, Ward YW President, Stake Leadership Training instructor and Stake Single Adult Leader and in various Ward Relief Society Presidencies. After moving to Provo with her daughters in 1969, she went to work for Jones Paint & Glass, enjoying the association with the wonderful clientele who looked to her for home decorating ideas. After 27 years, she retired from Jones Paint & Glass making her home in Tooele and later in Chandler, Ariz. For many years Florence organized a “Santa’s Helper Project,” making and collecting items for both people in need and the “forgotten ones” living at the State Hospital located in American Fork. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings Richard Orrin Herrick (Edith), Harry Timothy Herrick (Dorothy), Bruce Arthur Herrick (Mary Jane), Mary Jane Gott (Tommy) and Pauline Margaret (Jim). She is survived by siblings Wanda Ruth Marquardt (Skip), Eleanor Elizabeth Seifert (John); daughters Vickie Kay Poulson (John) of Stansbury Park, Nancy JoAnn Peterson (Rusty) of Chandler, Ariz., and Linda Jean Waters (Dale) of Frederick, Colo.; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. The family would like to express gratitude to the staff, professionals and care-givers at Dr. Charles Holt’s Office, Cottage Glen, Rocky Mountain Health Care and Pine Mountain Hospice who rendered exceptional and compassionate service in Florence’s later years and during the last months of her life. A viewing is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 27 in the LDS Chapel located at 417 Benson Way, Stansbury Park, with funeral services immediately after. Burial will take place in the Stansbury Park Cemetery.
