Sister Florence Kremer, a teacher, business office manager and prayer minister for more than 60 years, died Tuesday in St. Mary of the Angels Regional House in Williamsville. She was 91.
Born in Buffalo, Sister Florence was a member of the Sisters of St. Francis for 64 years.
She attended St. Agnes Grade School, South Park High School and played the field drum in the East Lovejoy Drum Corps.
After nine years working in the business office at Angert Auto Parts Co., she entered the Sisters of St. Francis in 1951 and initially received the name of Sister M. Imelda Ann. In later years, she returned to her baptismal name of Sister Florence. She professed her firsts vows in 1954 and final vows in 1957.
Sister Florence taught fourth, fifth and sixth grades at St. Francis, St. Bernard, St. James and St. Agnes elementary schools in Buffalo for nine years. For the next 29 years, she worked in the business office of St. Francis Hospital. In May 1992, Sister Florence moved to Williamsville, where she worked at St. Mary of the Angels Motherhouse on Mill Street and in 1999 to the new St. Mary of the Angels Regional House.
In her retirement years, she devoted herself to community service as a receptionist, and to prayer ministry and the Adopt-A-Sister program.
