On March 11, 2020 at 6:25 am, Floaria “Florence” Ellis joined her Lord and Saviour in Heaven. Florence was born on December 9, 1938 in Shellmouth Municipality, Manitoba. She was raised in Blue Wing and at the age of 18 married, Jim Todorovich. Her first and only daughter, Debbie, was born in 1958, followed by her sons, Donald and David in 1960 and 1964 respectively. Florence spent her time raising her family, working the family farm, and was employed at the Roblin District Hospital. She enjoyed gardening, studying the word, serving her community, and providing for her family. In 1982 Jim passed away and three years later Florence found love again with Oliver Ellis.
Florence was very involved with the church. She was devoted to God and His word, focusing on worship, praise and prayer. Florence had a calling and knew the importance of intercessory prayer for her family, church family, friends, and ultimately anyone that crossed her path. Her mission in life was to share God’s love and salvation, His grace and mercy. During her stay at the Brandon ICU, she was grateful for everyone’s help, love and prayers and for God’s plan to reunite her with her family.
