Florence Alma Joseph was born Nov. 9, 1910, and gracefully completed her baptismal journey on Dec. 12, 2016, at age 106, with her family at her side, at the home of her son, John Joseph, of Queensbury, N.Y.

Florence was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years and is survived by her sons Fredric of Minneapolis, Minn.; John and daughter-in-law Susan, of Queensbury, N.Y.; four grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
