Florence Holmsten, 88, of St. Anthony Park, died Aug. 15, 2018. She was a lifelong member of the St. Anthony Park United Methodist Church, as well as of its choir. She was a member of the P.E.O women’s group, and a U.M.W. member.

She was a 1947 graduate of Murray High School, and still attended annual class reunions.
