Florence I. Heitzman


July 24, 2020

She was an avid Penn State football fan and traveled to several games.  She loved to play Bingo, going to Knoebel’s and to the beach.  One of her favorite past times was porch sitting and talking with her neighbors. She always looked forward to her standing hair appointment once a week.  After losing her husband early in their marriage, she lived her life with dignity.  Florence’s life was centered around her home, family and her friends.  She will be remembered by all who knew and loved her as a very generous and selfless person.
