Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Friend


Florence Marie Bucholz (nee Lines), age 89, was delivered into the arms of Jesus and her husband Robert after quietly passing away on Saturday morning August 25th, 2018 in her home at Rouse Suites, Youngsville, PA. She was born February 9, 1929, in Youngstown, Ohio, a daughter to the late Orville and Mary (nee Smagola) Lines.
She leaves behind her three children, Nancy (Charles) Snyder of Columbus, PA, Robert (Cynthia) of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and Kenneth (Paige) of Columbus, Ohio. Her six grandchildren include Emily, Elizabeth, Brooke, Madison, Colton, and Beatrice Bucholz; her sister Jean Cassidy; Krista Haas Bucholz, nieces Marilyn, Linda, Diane, and Carol and their families, many cousins, and precious friends, her cat Misty, and several grand pets also survive. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, the love of her life, Robert John, on June 27, 2013. Later that summer, brother-in-law Donald Cassidy as well as Jerry Haas also passed away.
Florence was raised in Clearfield County, PA before moving with her parents and sister to Cleveland, Ohio. She graduated from John Adams High School in 1946. She then attended Duke Business College prior to working at Ohio Bell Telephone Company as a secretary, where she met her husband Robert. She and Robert were married on June 26, 1953 and made their home in South Euclid, Ohio. She became a full time mother and homemaker in 1955 when her daughter Nancy was born. She and Robert moved with their daughter Nancy and first son Robert to New Providence, N.J., after Robert was transferred to work at AT&T in New York City. While living there they welcomed their second son, Kenneth, into their family. They then moved to Parma, Ohio in 1964 where they enjoyed many happy years together. In 2015, Florence moved to Pennsylvania to be near her daughter and son-in-law.
Florence and her family gathered many precious friends during her lifetime. Taking care of her family and home were her number one priority. The Bucholz home was always open to neighbors, friends, and family to stop by to visit or chat on the phone.
She was active in Parma Schools P.T.A, P.E.O, and the Parma Hospital Auxiliary. She loved being a homemaker, visiting with family and friends over coffee or on the telephone, walking, cooking, singing, reading a good book, sewing, and caring for her gardens. She was a close member of the Pot Luck Group of friends and her ladies sewing club. She and her family took many wonderful trips throughout the country. She cherished the many holiday homecoming dinners she prepared. She loved being outdoors and in the country at her daughter and son-in-law's "Misty Ridge" home in Columbus Township/Corry, PA. Her family and friends will remember the cookie jar was always filled with her lovingly baked chocolate chip cookies.
Family and cherished friends may gather to honor and celebrate her life at the Busch Funeral Home located at 7501 Ridge Road, Parma, Ohio. Memorial visitation will be from 2 - 4 and 6 - 8pm Wednesday Sept 5, 2018 with memorial services at 11am on Thursday and inurnment will follow in Lakeview Cemetery.
