Florence Pierson, mother of five children of whom she was very proud, was a resident of the East Bay since 1958. She was born in Nova Scotia, Canada, graduated valedictorian from Santa Monica High School and later received her teaching credential from UCLA. Florence worked for Mt. Diablo Head Start/State Preschool program for twelve years, retiring in 1979. A facility was named after her in West Pittsburg - "The Florence Pierson Child Development building." Florence did graduate work in the study of aging at JFK University after retiring. A woman of extraordinary organizational skills, she was active in many advocacy groups. A founding member of the Mt. Diablo Unitarian Church since 1958, she was an active member in innumerable committees and projects. Florence's extremely positive outlook on life sparked her tenacious and constant efforts to make a difference in our world. She received the Peace Maker Award along with many other honors and awards. In addition to her many committee activities, Florence enjoyed traveling, music and family get-togethers. Florence passed away on July 3, 2007 due to complications from cancer and a stroke. She was predeceased by her beloved husband David after 62 years of marriage and is survived by her five children and their four spouses, eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Donations can be made in her name to the Mt Diablo Unitarian Church. The memorial will be held at the Mt Diablo Unitarian Church, 55 Eckley Lane in Walnut Creek, August 4, 2007 at 10:00 a.m.
