Florence (Burell) Maschka



Florence (Burell) Maschka, Sister, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Friend. Also answers to Ma, Gee Ma, Gee Gee Ma, Original Nanny, Motheratti, and Roadrunner.

She has been found baking and delivering hand made apple pies, cakes, brownies, and 18 loaves of bread on Sunday afternoons to friends, family and neighbors. She has also been seen picking up and delivering mail for those infirmed and visiting patients in nursing homes providing comfort and pleasant conversation. Her lawn and gardens are also places she spent a great deal of time.

Her leaving has left a great void in the lives of her family and friends. If she has touched your life, please smile and remember her fondly. She departed 22 days before the anniversary of her 94th lap around the sun.

A Mass will be held on the 18th of November at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Hampton at 11:00 a.m. with a reception to follow at the Scotland Vol. Fire Dept, on Brook Rd in Scotland from 12:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. Come and toast the host whether just out from under the sheets, from under a car, or from under a cow.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
