KLIMES, FLORENCE (Ellis) nee Currie

Flo Klimes, beloved wife of Joe Klimes, passed away gently on April 25 at home in Ladysmith BC.

“Florrie” was born August 10, 1920 at Rocky Point, Prince Edward Island. 

She was predeceased by her parents Mary MacDonald and Stephen Currie, her brother Spurgeon Currie and sisters Connie Betts and Jean Muloin. 

Flo is survived by her Dear husband Joe Klimes of Ladysmith and her sister Norma MacDonald of Charlottetown, PEI.

She will be missed by her children Darlane (Johnny) Davis, Currie (Shelby Knight) Ellis, and Roger Ellis and by Joe’s sons Jim (Dianne), Greg (Debbie), and Andy (Louise) Klimes.

Also missing their Grandma and Great Grandma are Kim (Doug Knudson) Ellis, Paul (Lindsay) Ellis, Kelly (Brian) Gage with Davis and Dawson, Becky (Eliot) Anderson with Makena and Charlie.

Flo saw life through rose coloured glasses; always seeing her glass half full. 

She smiled a lot.

In her 94 years Flo enlisted in the RCAF during WW2, taught eight grades in one room, grew flowers, swam, golfed, loved her family and marvelled at the beauty in our world.

We hope to live by her example.

A celebration of Flo’s life was held on May 1, 2015 at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Ladysmith with the Reverend Susan Hermanson officiating.

Special thanks to Dr. Britton Foster for his kindness and to Town and Country neighbours and friends, especially Gord, Marg and Gerry.
