Florence was born on the family farm near Milford, NE, on November 1, 1922, to Paul & Anna (Hanseling) Ficke. On August 28, 1942, she was married to Chester E. Fosler at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Milford, NE. Chet and Florence farmed near Milford until 1974 when they retired from farming and moved into Milford. Florence then worked as a cook at the Milford Public Schools and enjoyed watching her grandchildren grow up. Chet and Florence were charter members of Camp Creek Thrashers and enjoyed traveling to various antique shows. Florence enjoyed collecting carnival glass pieces and anything “chicken”. Florence moved into Holmes Haven Condominium in 1994 to be close to Chet while he stayed in Holmes Lake Manor. Florence served as president of the auxiliary and volunteered at Holmes Lake Manor for several years even following Chet’s death in 1997. After a fall in her condo and being found by her mail carrier in 2009, Florence moved into The Windcrest assisted living center in Lincoln. She was transferred into Holmes Lake Manor in 2013 as her health declined. Florence enjoyed the many kind words and visits from family, friends, and staff.
