Obituary of Florence Marie Soens

Florence was born in Everson, PA to Walter and Stella Polakowski. Florence was raised in Everson and graduated from Scottdale High School in 1948. Her family later moved to Detroit, where she did clerical work for Roadway Transportation. Flo always enjoyed attending sporting events with her father which led to a lifelong love of sports. Flo married Charles Richard (Dick) Soens on May 13, 1950. They celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary a few months prior to Dick’s death in August 2015. Flo stayed at home during the raising of their four children. She later returned to doing clerical work in the healthcare industry.

Flo was preceded in death by her parents, her six siblings, her husband Dick, and their only son Robert Soens. She is survived by daughters Deborah Keniston (Ken Hackett), Susan Allen and Ann Wolfe (Benjamin); daughter-in-law Diana Soens; grandchildren John Soens (Kori), Justin Soens (Katie), Kimberly Hardee (Kyle), Jeffrey Rambaum, Rebecca Allen, Rachel Allen and Alan Wolfe; and great-grandchildren Blake and Greta Soens (John and Kori), Clara and Luke Soens (Justin and Katie) and Avery and Adelyn Hardee (Kimberly and Kyle).
