Florence Danielson was born in Sunray, TX on Nov. 28, 1942 to Sam Brown and Bessie Sliger. She married Larry Danielson, Sr. on June 16, 1976 in Rockwall, TX. She worked at Decker Meats and also at Wal-Mart in the toy department. She was a member of Shannon Oaks Church. Florence had many hobbies. She loved to go fishing. She was an avid reader with a large collection of books. She also loved to sew and cross stitch. She made her family clothes, costumes, and blankets. Florence also loved to take home videos, especially at family gatherings. She captured hours of precious memories with her video camera. Several years ago, she started collecting ceramic bunnies. Her collection has multiplied over the years and now whenever her family sees a ceramic bunny they fondly think of her. The Lord gifted Florence with the ability to selflessly care for others. Throughout her life she was caregiver to both her parents, two sisters, her brother and her husband. She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Her family was the most important thing to her. Her sisters described her as their rock, their person to talk to, and their safe space. She was the glue that held the family together. She will be greatly missed, but left a legacy started by her parents, to love one another and be there for each.
