* * In Loving Memory of Florence * *
Florence is very loved, deeply missed
and remembered forever in the hearts
of all who loved her. Florence was
a beloved Wife, Daughter, Mother,
Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Cousin
and much more. Her beloved late
husband Albert and all her Many
Family Members missed her very
much when she passed away. Florence
is survived by many grandchildren,
great grandchildren, other relatives
in Minnesota, Nebraska, possibly
Illinois, other areas around USA,
most likely Canada and Ireland.

Florence passed away when her
Grandchildren were young. Her
Grandchildren report that Florence's
Mother Bridget Conroy's family of origin
was County Cork Ireland. They report
they were told Bridget came to the USA
from Country Cork Ireland. Florence
has many Grandchildren from
both Daughters, Iris and Eileen.
As of 2015, many of Florence's Grandchildren,
g. Grandchildren and their children have
bright beautiful red hair and very fair skin.
Strong red hair gene inherited in this Family.

Florence's Brother John Edmund Enright's
Minnesota birth records
site Bridget Conroy Enright as
being born in Cliftdew Galway Ireland.
Same records site Florence's Father
Thomas Enright as being born in Canada,
(Paternal Grandparents), Parents of Thomas
both born in Ireland.

Florence's Sister Mayme Enright passed away in Chicago Illinois while visiting an Aunt there, so Florence may have relatives in Illinois too.

Florence was active with the Democratic Party and politics during her life. After Florence had passed away, some years later, her husband Albert was invited to attend the US Presidential Inaugural for President Lyndon Baines Johnson on Jan. 20, 1965 in Washington DC. Her Grandchildren have kept the gold colored letter framed. It is not known all the good Florence and her late husband did in the community, but it must have been really good for Albert to be invited to attend and participate in the Presidents Inaugural in Washington DC.
