Florence Milk Obituary

Florence Anne Milk (Thurston), 82, longtime resident of Greene, NY, passed away on January 4, 2024 surrounded by her loving family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Florence was a kind and beautiful person who always shared joy and happiness wherever she went and with whomever she met. She had a zest for life and in her younger years she enjoyed traveling with the love of her life, Jim, to country music festivals, sharing time with family and friends at the Del-Se-Nango Music Haven Dance Hall, besting anyone who challenged her to a game of Yahtzee or cards and she had a love for bird watching. She was also blessed with a great talent for crafting and was followed by many who bought her wares at craft shows. Florence was predeceased by her husband of more than 40 years, James; parents, Fredrick and Irean (Hatton) Thurston; and son, Jason. She is survived by her children, Vern Joslin (Dannielle), Brenda Oralls (Dale), Jim Milk (Jeanette), Teresa Shattuck (Joe), Kyle Milk (Michelle) and Scott Milk; brothers, Calvin Thurston (Carol) and Paul Thurston; as well as beloved grandchildren, great-grandchildren, cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
