QUANTZ, Florence Ethel (nee Green)

May 16, 1920 – June 4, 2012

Florence Ethel Quantz passed away peacefully on Monday, June 4, 2012 after a brief illness at the age of 92 years.

She was born on May 16, 1920 in Innisfail Alberta; the only daughter of Victor and Ethel Green. Florence married William Quantz in 1938 and they moved to Calgary in 1943. Florence and William raised five children. Florence has been active in the Nazarene Church all of her life. She served as a Sunday school teacher and Missionary box work secretary for many years. Florence was always on the go whether in her garden or just out for a walk. She always had a smile and a great love for her family and her church. She was a true believer and gives us comfort knowing she is home at last, until we meet again.

Florence leaves her sons Gordon and Dale (Kari), son-in-law Alfons Sage of Calgary, and a daughter Lora Lee Black (Kevin) of Mississauga; as well as 11 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, 3 nieces and 2 nephews. Florence was predeceased by her husband William Quantz, a daughter Althea Sage, daughter-in-law Melina Quantz, son and daughter in-law Glen and Elsie Quantz, grandson John Quantz as well as her brothers Howard and Walter Green.

‘We will grieve not; rather find strength in what remains behind.’

  1. Florence and her great family made space for me in their home 40 years ago when I arrived in Calgary. I have fond memories of Flo’s wonderful laugh, her cookie jar, her great cooking, Cindy her dachshund, all the homemade crafts, and, of course, her cookie jar. Florence rest peacefully.

    Gordon, Dale, and Lora Lee and family
    I was so sorry to see that your Mother has passed away. Its been awhile since I have seen her and any of you. She was such a kind Aunt and will be missed and remembered fondly. It is sad that the older part of the Green family is all gone, but they all lived wondeful lives and were such good people. I am sorry that I will be unable to attend the service but we have moved to south east Sask. I will let Jim know as he lives in Paris now.
    Our love and thoughts are with you all, hope we will connect again in the future.
    Love to you all Judy and Dwayne and families.

    Sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I remember times at Radium-I itched like crazy from the Hot Springs water and to find out your mom had the same condition-she had to shower afterwards to avoid the itch-I did likewise after that.
    I just lost my dad (May 11th). Take comfort in knowing others share your loss. Take Care!
