Florella's mother, Ada, died in 1916 when she was only three years old. She then went to live with mother's family and grew up on the Herberg farm in Chisago County, MN. The household included her uncle Albert, grandparents Andrew and Ida, aunts Mabel, Florence, and Pearl, and her uncle Lawrence. Her aunts later moved away from the farm to seek their "fame and fortune" in California.

Florella was called "Aunt Flora" by her younger cousins. Flora sewed dresses for her cousins using clothes sent to them by her aunts in California. Flora recycled the clothes into beautiful quilts and dresses.

Flora married Henry Carlson and had two boys. At one time, Flora lived in Minneapolis.
