Florence Geraldine (Pawlak) Lawrence

She was born November 6, 1921 to the late Nicholas "Michael" and Francis (Staszak) Pawlak in Bay City, Michigan. Florence was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who not only was an excellent cook and seamstress, loved to travel and supported her family in every way possible. Her earlier years were spent traveling to Whites Beach where she and her husband Charles had a cottage next to her sister, Sally and brother-in-law Dick and her husband's sister, Lucille and brother-in-law, Howard. Her favorite pass time was perch fishing and playing cards. Later, at the age of 65, Florence purchased for herself a jet ski and a travel trailer which she enjoyed with her grandchildren. Then began many travel adventures with her retiree friends from Kmart and daughter, Barbara who lived internationally and her son, James who lived in California. Florence traveled to her ancestral home town of Poznan Poland, walked the Great Wall of China, trekked the jungles of Brazil and toured many castles and destinations in Europe. Florence also had a winter home in Florida, where she enjoyed line dancing and playing bingo. Florence was most often heard saying "Let's Go."

In addition to her parents Florence is preceded in death by her husband, Charles Lawrence; four sisters, and three brothers.
