In Loving Memory of Florence Poyman

Florence was a beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt,Cousin and much more. Florence is loved, missed and will be remembered forever. Her beloved late husband Albert
missed her very much when she passed away.

As of 2013, Florence's beloved husband Albert B. Poyman and two beloved daughters Eileen Marie Powers Bender and Iris Theresa Poyman Carlson have all passed away. Florence passed away when her MN Grandchildren( Iris's children) were very young. ( see their links) They report that Florence's family came to US from Country Cork Ireland. Florence has Grandchildren from both Daughters, Iris and Eileen. There are many grandchildren, great, great great grandchildren in Minnesota, Nebraska and other states in US. Forence's daughter Mayme 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.
