"She was a kind and loving person
who enjoyed her friends and family."

Flora went into the arms of the Lord on Sun., March 13th. She was born in Michigan and grew up in the Ellsworth area of Vancouver, WA with her parents Rosa Elizabeth (Fairbanks) and Herbert G. Clothier. She attended Union High School, class of 1935.
Flora worked for Fletcher-Daniels Abstract and Title Company in Vancouver and married Michael in 1942. She stayed home, raising her children and was active in the PTA at John Rogers School. She was a Camp Fire leader, a member of the Washington Grange and Independent Order of Foresters, the East Vancouver United Methodist Church, now called Vancouver Heights, where she recorded the attendance for over 25 years, and active member of Sarah's Circle.
She collected everything "Butterfly", with them covering nearly every surface of her room, including herself.
Flora crocheted afghan's and baby blankets for charity and helped collect school supplies for needy students. She was able to play most any song on the piano by "ear".
