Florence Jones celebrated her 100th birthday at Brookhurst Ashley Manor Oct. 16, 2017.

She was born in Sixes, the eldest child of Solomon Lester Fitzhugh and Mary Ann Wells. She comes from a large family of Oregon pioneers.

Florence spent many years as a nurse who thoroughly enjoyed tending to her patients' needs and was very highly respected in her profession.

After retirement, Florence enjoyed working in her garden, doing crafts and cooking. She was a wonderful cook and delighted in sharing her culinary skills.

She had family and friends come from far and wide to help her celebrate her 100 years, and many thanks go out to Ashley Manor for helping plan and participate in Florence's birthday.
