Following her retirement from the National Jewish Hospital she was united in marriage to Fred B. Cain at Denver on December 3, 1972, and they made their home in Benkelman, Nebraska.
Florence was a devoted Christian most of her life, having been affiliated with the Free Methodist Church and later, after her marriage to Fred Cain, transferred her membership to the Benkelman Friends Church.

1982 she transferred to the Autumn Heights Health Care Center in Denver. Florence was preceded in death by her parents; her husbands, John Cox and Fred Cain; one son, Harold Loren Cox; one grandson, Gerald Dalton Sr., and one great-grandson, Robbie Harding. She is survived by her two daughters, Catherine Cox and Helen Dalton, both of Denver; one granddaughter, Sharon Horton; four great-grandchildren: Cindy and Julie Harding and Gerald Jr. and Edward Dalton, and a host of other relatives and friends. Florence will be remembered by her kind and sweet disposition even in the midst of pain and especially her love for her Lord and His word.
