Florence Gershenson died peacefully on Aug. 27, 2010 of respiratory failure while recuperating from a cardiac infection. She resided at 4342 Redwood Avenue in Marina del Rey, California at the time of her death.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri on May 6, 1920 to Polish immigrants Paulina and Herman Stone, Florence grew up in Los Angeles. She is a graduate of Fairfax High School and UCLA.

A gracious and compassionate woman, Florence was passionately committed to the needs of children and the infirm. For over twenty-five years, she was deeply involved as a lay leader of the San Fernando Valley Child Guidance Clinic (now known as the Child and Family Guidance Center), including a stint as Chair of its Board of Directors.

For the last twenty years, she has been a dedicated volunteer at the Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital and Saint John's Medical Center in Santa Monica.

Florence was preceded in death by siblings Sam Stone, Sarah Perlmutter, Gilbert Stone, Nathan Stone, and William Stone. She is survived by her brother, OG Gottlieb. Other survivors include her daughter Jeanie Harper; son Mark Gershenson (Elaine); grandchildren Heather Cotten (Tim), Jonathan Harper, Chloe Gershenson, and Gwynne Gershenson; and great-grandchildren Tyler Cotten and Peyton Cotten.

The service and interment was held at Eden Memorial Park in Mission Hills on August 30, 2010.
