Florence (Terris) MacPherson


Florence (Terris) MacPherson

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Florence MacPherson who passed away peacefully on February 12, 2019 at Northumberland Hall, one day short of her 94th birthday.

Florence was born and raised in Springhill.  She was the daughter of the late John (Jack) and Mary Florence (Delaney) Terris.  She is survived by her loving family Janice (Don) Carter, Barbara (John) Prentice, Michael (Kim) MacPherson and daughter-in-law Cherry MacPherson, 10 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren.  She was predeceased by husband Douglas MacPherson, son John MacPherson; brothers Ken, Tom, Jim, Ralph, Edward (in infancy) and Carl; sisters Eldora, Marguerite (Mutt) and Eileen. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family. 

She was a devoted daughter, wife, mother and grandmother, a role model for her kids and grandkids, treating everyone with unconditional love and kindness.  She loved all music and spent many hours listening to her radio and completing a good crossword puzzle.

Florence was a member of St. Andrews Wesley United Church and the UCW.   In her earlier years following High School, she worked at the Company Office in Springhill.  Following her marriage, her focus was in raising her family.    Florence enjoyed bowling, knitting, sewing and spending summers at the cottage at Linden Beach.   She will be forever cherished by all who knew her.

Her family would like to extend their appreciation to the staff at Northumberland Hall for their kindness and wonderful care during her stay.
