Florence Edna Nye

1926 - 2020

Florence (Romick) Nye, passed away peacefully into the loving arms of her Lord on June 20, 2020 at the age of 93 at Fox Run Manor. She was born December 31, 1926 in Van Buren to the late Fred and Marie (Werling) Romick. Florence married Eugene Nye in 1946 and he preceded her in death. Also preceding her are her sisters Mary (Al) Brim, Ruth (Earl) Hartman, Rose (Bob) Hance, and an infant Elizabeth Romick. Florence is survived by her sons Michael Nye of Naples, Florida, Richard (Beverly) Nye of Spring, Texas and her daughter Christine (Steven) Brown of Findlay. Also surviving are 7 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great grandchild and a sister Pat (Sam) Copus of Yorktown, Virginia. Florence attended Van Buren High School where she graduated top of her class then attended college in Tiffin. Later, WWII inspired her to work at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton. A rural child in the Great Depression, she developed a strong work ethic, a passion for family and friends, and a lifelong frugal nature. While attending to her household, she worked at various jobs and positions. She enjoyed outdoors, gardening, hiking, fishing and birding. As she aged, she added shuffleboard at Riverside Park and enjoyed many evenings dancing as a member of the Hancock County Senior Dance Club. She attended St Paul's Church for many years. Florence's tough and thoughtful demeanor will be dearly remembered and greatly missed. A graveside service will be held at a later date. All arrangements have been entrusted to COLDREN CRATES FUNERAL HOME, Findlay, OH. Condolences can be made at www.coldrencrates.com
