Florence Latisha Roberts – 59, Highland Village, Colchester County, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on Friday, July 15, 2022, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in Truro, she was a daughter of the late George and Georgina (Eagles) Currie.

Florence raised her family, and looked after many neighbourhood children as well, affectionately known as "Mom" to more than just her own children. For the past five years, she worked at The Mira Long Term Care Centre. She enjoyed reading her romance novels, and would often swap bags and boxes full of novels with her mother-in-law, doing crossword puzzles, playing TV/radio Bingo, making preserves, cooking and baking.

She excelled in the kitchen, and although she shared the recipes with her family, they will not be able to make peanut clusters, chocolate delights, double chocolate chip cookies, cherry cheesecake, potato salad, strawberry jam, pickles and beets like she did, to name only a few of the delicious things she made. Family meant everything to Florence; she was raised in a large family and had a large family of her own. Much love was shared over the years and memories made.

Florence is survived by her husband of 42 years, Roy; children, Jonathan Roberts (Lucas Schofield), Truro; Melissa Priest, Truro Heights; Sarah (Travis) Jollimore, Highland Village; Peter Roberts, Truro; grandchildren, Jayden, Seth, Damian, Kadence, Charleigh, Taylor, Tucker, Peter Jr.; siblings, Glenda Currie, Truro Heights; Jesse (Janet) Currie, North River; Kathleen (Richard) Sinton, Truro; George Currie, Truro; Greg (Sherry) Currie, Truro; Star (Wayne) Corkum, Truro; Trina Currie (Shane Bernard), Lantz; Amanda Trites, Truro Heights; several nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, two great grandnieces. Along with her parents, she was predeceased by her granddaughter, Bleu.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro, where Florence’s family will receive friends from 1-3 p.m., Thursday, July 21, 2022. Interment will be held at a later date in Mahon Cemetery, Great Village. If so desired, donations in Florence’s memory to Londonderry Athletic Association are welcomed.
