Florence A (Koehler) Brown age 98 of Gilbert and Palmerton passed away Sunday, August 5, at her home in Punta Gorda, Florida, with her son at her side.

Florence was born in Eldred Township on June 1,1914 the daughter of the late Charles and Estella (Roth) Koehler, she was the wife of the late Frewd Brown, who passed away in 1981.

Florence graduated from the Chestnuthill High School. She continued her education and graduated from East Stroudsburg State College in 1964 with a BS in Education. Florence was a 4th grade teacher at the Delaware Water Gap School and Parkland School District in Schnecksville.

We'll always remember the things that brought Florence joy. She was an accomplished pianist known for playing for the Monroe County Christian Women's Club and would play for her friends and family at her home in Gilbert.

One of Florence's favorite poems was written by Patrick O'Leary and it reads, There's a place that I travel, when I want to roam, an nobody knows it but me. The roads don't go there and the sign's stay home and nobody knows it but me. Its far,far way, way afar. Its over the moon and the sea, and wherever you are going, that's wherever you are and know nobody knows it but me.

We give thanks for the way Florence has blessed our lives with treasured memories and she will be deeply missed by her son, James Howard and his wife Bonney of Punta Gorda, Fla, her brother Norman Koehler and his wife Anne of Sun City Center, Fla, several nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and many friends.

In addition to her husband Fred, she was preceded in death by two brothers, Floyd and Raymond Koehler;.two sisters, Ruth Bizouski and Ida Mills.
