Such a special lady! Flo always put her all into everything she was affiliated with. Great memories when we ( older ) Agriculture teachers and families got together, with Flo and Bill, at the summer picnics and all the other Agr. Related functions. Our deepest sympathy to her family.

Love, Bill & Laurie

To Linda, Sharon and family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you celebrate your mother's life. Flo was a wonderful woman and an inspiring educator - both in and out of the classroom. I finally got used to calling her "Flo" ... as she was always "Mrs. T." or "Mrs. Tackett" to me! Never forget when I made my first "doughnuts" in Home Economics. They were hard as a rock... even the FFA guys couldn't eat them! Mrs. T. encouraged me to not give up and keep on trying. I used to sit with your mom and your dad at church at Veto when we attended there. We enjoyed sharing news about what was going on with our lives. So happy we were able to share in Flo's special birthday celebration as well. My father really enjoyed spending some time chatting with her. May happier memories help ease the pain of your loss. We won't be able to attend services due to prior commitments, but want you to know that we'll be thinking about you all. Hugs from Mark, Terry and Maria Nutter
