Obituary of Florine Miller Reid

Florine Miller Reid was born April 10, 1922, in Labette County, Kansas. She passed away on Aug. 9, 2016 in Grass Valley, with her daughters at her side. At an early age she developed a love of flowers that was reflected in her beautiful flower gardens wherever she lived. She married Harold Reid on Aug. 16, 1942, and following WWII, they made their home in Colorado. They raised their family in Lakewood and were actively involved at Holy Shepard Lutheran Church. Over the next few years work took them to California, Arizona and Florida. When retirement time came, Harold and Florine settled in Bandon, Oregon, where they built their home on Trout Pond Lane. They were surrounded by wonderful friends. Florine joined the Bandon Garden Club and they were active members of Faith Lutheran Church in Coquille. After moving to Grass Valley, she joined Peace Lutheran Church where she was an active member of their Peacemakers quilting circle. Family and friends will remember her fondly for her pies, cinnamon rolls and other baked delights which she shared so freely. Florine is survived by her daughters, Linda and Curt Williams of Grass Valley and Karen and Kent Bulkley of Mesa, Arizona; grandchildren, Cindy and Drew Van Horne, Trudy and Vince Mudrak, Jared Bulkley and Kimberly Stringham; and six great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Harold; her parents Floyd and Idabelle Miller; sister Floy Smith; and brothers Claude Melvin, James and Jack. A memorial service is planned for 10 a.m., on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St. Grass Valley. Memorial donations may be made to Peacemakers of Peace Lutheran Church or Hospice of the Foothills. Arrangements are under the care of Chapel of the Angels Mortuary.
