Florence Mildred Seibold

Dec 16 1924 - Feb 23 2010

Florence M. Seibold, was called home to her eternal resting place, on Tuesday, February 23, 2010, in Westboro, MA. Florence was born to Selleck and Lucy Scofied on December 16, 1924, and was the youngest of eight children. Florence grew up in the Bronx and it was there that she met her true love, our dad, John Seibold and married. In the course of their 51 years of life together, they raised eight children in New York and California and finally settled in Frisco, Texas. They shared a beautiful faith in God and today walk hand in hand with Jesus. Florence was a champion in bowling, ping-pong and scrabble and enjoyed volunteering in school reading programs, gardening, baking for friends, and trips to the beach. She loved all animals and never missed passing on a blessing to friend or stranger alike. She leaves behind a legacy of faith, the testimonies of those she touched through her prayer ministry, treasured recipes and handwritten letters. Florence is survived by seven of her children: Florence Howard-Shortino, Michael Seibold, Paul Seibold, Ellenmarie Blunt, Mary Hitch, Lisa Ann Christopher, and Peter Seibold, their spouses, 18 grandchildren, 6 great- grandchildren, her brother Selleck, her sister Grace, her sister-in-law Dorothy, numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom love her and miss her very much. Florence was preceded in death by her loving husband John, her son John, her grandson Alex, her brother Richard, and four of her sisters: Susan, Elizabeth, Irene, and Genevieve. Mom, you were an inspiration and true joy to so many and you enriched the lives of all those who came in contact with you. Thank you for teaching us to always believe in and put our trust in God. It is God who is comforting us and helping us get through our loss. We love you mom for so many reasons, but mostly for your compassion and your great love toward others. You never turned anyone away. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, July 10, 2010, in the Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Chapel, 2525 Central Expressway North, Allen, Texas. A memorial graveside service will follow at Ridgeview Memorial Park.
