After the sons were both in school Flo enjoyed working at jobs as retail cashier in discount stores, and as a bank teller at a bank & later at a credit union. Flo was a great cook of both traditional American cuisine along with Chinese food.  The family pot-luck dinners on holidays were always a treat for the extended family, many of whom would have waited all year for Flo’s special homemade egg rolls, homemade sweet and sour sauce, and fried rice.  There were always empty containers to bring home. 
 Flo was a devoted mom to her two sons, Cliff and Ted, putting family above all else.  This included driving her sons in the harsh winter conditions in North Dakota so they could explore extra-curricular activities.
Flo finally got her chance to help raise girls with the arrival of 3 granddaughters, Katie, Anna, and Emma.  Flo marveled at their boundless energy and ability to play and find joy in nearly anything. Flo was able to share her Chinese language with her granddaughters starting with counting numbers, greetings, and other basics. Flo spent the first 21 years of her life in Singapore & with that being an island country on the tip of Malaysia she learned to speak Malaysian. In addition to speaking Malaysian, & English; she also knew 5 dialects of Chinese.
