Florence was born on October 10th 1930 to David & Antoinette Davis in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Lovingly known to her family as ‘Grandma Ace’, she was quite the lady. She loved making cross-stitch & crocheted creations for her family. Florence loved holidays and get-togethers; any chance to spend time with her family was important to her. She was known for her smile & open heart for family, friends & people in general. There wasn’t anyone that she couldn’t strike up a conversation with & get to know a bit about their lives. And people seemed to enjoy her honest attention. Florence had a sympathetic ear, such a good listener. (She was also a card shark and we happily let all new family members find this out on their own!) Having tea parties, making crafts & just spending time with her grandchildren & great-grandchildren gave her such joy.

Florence married the love of her life, Glen Ennen in 1968 and moved to Clear Lake, IA. Later on they made a move Fertile; where they both enjoyed their ‘hobby acres’. After having (8) wonderful years, Glen passed away in 1976. She then moved to Clear Lake for several years until settling into her new home on her daughter’s acreage in Mason City.

She is survived by her daughter Teri (Jerry) Jackson of Mason City, her sons David Ziron and fiancé Sue of Garner and Randy (Verlinda) Ennen of Garner; grandchildren: Jamey (Anne) Jackson, Chaska, MN; Tim (Amanda) Jackson, Clear Lake; Cheryl Lenning, Mason City; David Ziron Jr, Mason City; Darrin (Karrine) Wright, Oveido, FL; Denise (Pat) Snellenberger, Deltona, FL, Nikki (Blake) Martin; (13) great-grandchildren, Maxwell, MaKenna, Alexandria, Haley, Abbey, Piper, Hunter, Christopher, Samantha, Madison, Zachary, Emily & Brody; her loving sister Helen Faulkner, Pittsburgh, PA; and very dear nieces, nephews and friends.

Florence is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Glen, her daughter Linda Wright of Orange City, FL; her brothers Bill Davis & David Davis, sisters Anna Mae Powell, Lois Lucas of Pittsburgh, PA; her (Aunt Frieda) Sister Mary Bead Zibula of Baltimore, MD & precious nieces & nephews. She will be sorely missed by all that knew and loved her.
