Obituary for Florence Beck

Florence Arlene “Flo” Beck, 88, formerly of Tyler, passed away on October 17, 2016 at Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park. Flo was born in Worthington, MN on November 3, 1927 to Jodie and Katherine (Pfeil) Anderson. She was raised on a farm in Fulda, MN and graduated from Fulda High School. After graduation, she attended Gustavus Adolphus College and the Minnesota School of Business. She then worked at McKesson and Robbins Pharmaceuticals.
On October 16, 1948, she married Wayne Beck. They relocated several times as Wayne established his career in the insurance business. They moved to Tyler in 1961 when Wayne purchased the Sondergaard Insurance Agency.
Flo’s life was centered on her family, raising four children and supporting Wayne and her kids in all their activities. She had a gift for music and was the church organist for several congregations, including First English in Tyler. Flo was an avid bridge player and golfer for many years and loved the challenge of her daily crossword puzzles. She was a passionate follower of all things football. She also enjoyed her happy hours with a glass of wine and a circle of good friends or family. The highlight of her year was the time spent together on family vacations or holiday gatherings.
Flo moved to Brainerd in 2013 and resided in Plymouth after June of this year.
Flo is preceded in death by her husband Wayne, her parents, her brothers Loren, Glenn and Harry and her sister Phyllis. She is survived by Sue of Brainerd, Don (Keri) of Maple Grove, Janis (Rick) Anderson of New Hope, and Jim (Ann) of Midland, MI. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Justin, Alyssa and Maddi Anderson, Megan Beck Kohls, Travis and Sarah Beck, Hannah and Haley Beck.
In lieu of flowers, memorials to Ridgeview Hospice (Tyler), Lutheran Social Services, the Tyler Food Shelf or a charity of your choice are preferred.
