She was a founding member of the school garden, served for many years on Azevada’s and Fremont Unified School District’s committees and PTA groups, and most notably, served as a volunteer librarian. Volunteering at the Azevada Library brought her much joy. She made genuine connections with the children and adults, and became a Mom and Nonni to many. Flo was a huge supporter of education and learning for all children and adults.
