Florence was born on August 17, 1922, in Franklin County, on the family farm, near Macon to Lammert and Anna (Saathoff) Frerichs. She was baptized in German at the Zion Lutheran Church west of Macon and confirmed in German at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church south of Hildreth. She worked while attending Hastings College, and taught school as a normal school teacher for two years in the LeRoy School District. Florence married Martin H.

While in Germany, she had to learn to ride a bicycle to visit the family. Her life revolved around her family and church and she was very active in her church, First St. Paul’s Lutheran, Hastings. Florence was a former member of the Glenvil Homemakers Extension Club of Clay County.
