Flo moved to St. Paul at 17 and worked at the old Miller Hospital until marrying Harold Mueller at the Cathedral of St. Paul. After the birth of their only child, Robert, they purchased their home near Como Lake, where she and friends enjoyed daily walks, regardless of the weather. A bench named in her honor is located on East Como Drive, Wheelock Parkway and Maryland Avenue.

After Harold’s death, she moved to Arbor Point Apartments in St. Paul, where she enjoyed life with many new friends. She took great pride earning her living as a housekeeper to prominent families in the Twin Cities. She will always be remembered for her love of family, strong values, generosity, fun sense of humor, needlework, crafts and cooking.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; son Robert; siblings Joseph, Gusty, Frances Mayer, Ann Friday; and one granddaughter. She is survived by brother Edward (Gloria) Greschner and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
