Florence Augusta Mullen

November 2, 1911 — November 12, 2014

Florence A. Mullen of Cuba, Missouri was born November 2, 1911 at Olney, Illinois to the union of John William Henry and Mable Gertrude (Nee: Jenners) Walden and left from this life on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at Life Care Center in Sullivan, Missouri at the age of 103 years.

Florence spent her life taking care of her family. She was an excellent cook that could make a huge meal out of nothing. Florence was known for her squirrel gravy, fried chicken, biscuits, donuts, lemon pie and black berry cobbler, just to name a few and everything was cooked on a wood cook stove. Florence enjoyed drawing, reading, gardening, fishing, playing bingo and loved playing practical jokes. For many years Florence and her husband took care of Lick Creek Cemetery by hand. She would take scissors and go around each monument just to make sure everything looked perfect. What meant the most to Florence was spending time with her family and friends. Florence was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, aunt, great aunt, great-great aunt, sister-in-law, cousin and friend to everyone she ever met. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
