Lucille G. "Lucy" Florek Obituary

Lucille G. "Lucy" Florek

NEGAUNEE, MI – Lucille G. “Lucy” Florek, age 93, of Negaunee, walked on into eternity on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at Eastwood Nursing Center. Born October 13, 1926, in Rogers City, to John L. and Genevieve (Paquin) Vincent, Lucy was raised in Naubinway. Lucy’s father was a fishing boat builder and, while living in Minnesota, Lucy met her future husband, Remy Jerome Florek, who was working in forestry in the area. The couple was married in 1943 and a few years later moved to the Marquette area due to her husband’s forestry work. They began raising their family while in Marquette and, due to Remy’s job obligations, resided in various locations throughout the Upper Peninsula and Lower Michigan throughout the years. Lucy was a dedicated homemaker who lovingly cared for her children as they grew older and was the glue that held everything together. She was an amazing cook, and everyone loved her banana cream pies, she was an avid reader, enjoyed Westerns, and enjoyed knitting and crocheting. She was very generous with both her time and talent and often gave away the handcrafts and kitchen goodies she created. Lucy is survived by her children, Ron (Rosalee) Florek, Remy (Tina) Florek Jr., Trish (Joe) Archuletta, Sharon (Bob) Maxon, and Genevieve Florek; 15 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, and 3 great great-grandchildren; a sister, Susan (Sam) Eisenback; brother, Donald Vincent; many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Lucy was preceded in death by her husband, Remy; a son, Jerome Florek; sisters, Emma Kramer, Justine Edelman, Geneva Butchko, and Margaret Bedrick; and brothers, John Paul Vincent, Raymond Vincent, James Vincent, Joseph Vincent, and Lawrence Vincent. No public services will be held. Fassbender Swanson Hansen Funeral and Cremation Services is serving the family, where condolences may be expressed online at fassbenderswansonhansen.com
