Florence Marie Ansloan, Age :87

Feb 27,1931---Feb 24,2019

Florence Marie Ansloan passed away on February 24th with family at her side. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, she graduated from Fontbonne Hall Academy with an emphasis on Business.

In a moment out of a movie, Florence met Bob at a dance. Together they raised four children, first in Brooklyn, later moving to Staten Island, where she served at her kids' school, P.S. 42, as a teacher's aide. When the family moved to Albuquerque in 1973, Florence worked at the Social Security Administration, later taking a position on Kirtland Air Force Base.

Florence enjoyed dancing, attending local theatre productions, listening to all styles of music, and story-telling. She was fond of regaling all with family stories, as well as short stories she wrote herself. Florence loved decorating for all holidays but especially Christmas. It was important that she make Christmas magical for her kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids.

Florence was preceded in death by the love of her life, Robert A. Ansloan; brother-in-law, Pete Peterson and son-in-law Matthew Bubb. Florence is survived by her sister, Marilyn Peterson; her children, Linda and Eddie Herrera, Bob and Gwen Ansloan, John and Bobbi Ansloan, Kenneth Ansloan; and numerous devoted grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

A funeral mass will be held honoring her life at Risen Savior Catholic Church on Thursday, March 7th at 10:00 am, preceded by a Rosary at 9:30 am.
