Florence May Neyens was born on the 4th of July 1925, at Cripple Creek, Colorado. How fitting, that having come into the world on the day that we celebrate independence, that she would leave us on the day that we honor those who fought for it, Memorial Day, May 28th, 2018. She was 92. She was the daughter of William “Bill” and Louise Munkers. She graduated from Cripple Creek High School. On October 26, 1969, Florence was united in marriage to Charles Neyens at Indian Hills, Colorado. Together they raised five children: Constance “Connie”, Robbinette “Robbie”, Sharon, George, and Edith “Dee Dee.”
Florence was a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, American Legion Auxiliary, K of C Altar Society and the Oakdale Cemetery Auxiliary. She was also involved in many local events throughout the area.
