Florence was a local girl born and raised in Raymond, Alberta. She married Yosh Senda in 1947 and together they raised their family in Lethbridge. Mom had strong roots in Southern Alberta and believed in actively giving back to the community by volunteering her time for various community organizations. She will be especially remembered for her many years at the Lethbridge Judo Club and was still practicing right up until her passing. She led a quietly independent life, spending the last 3 years living in the community at Garden View Lodge with her dog Roo.
