Florence was born at Cantal, Saskatchewan on November 6, 1935 and was raised and educated in the Wauchope District, Saskatchewan. Florence married Emile Gervais on November 14, 1953 at Manor, Saskatchewan. Florence was a loving wife, mother and partner. She helped Emile study for his plumbing exams when he was changing careers.

In 1976 the family moved to Medicine Hat, AB where Emile continued his plumbing career. Florence went to work at the Sears department store for its grand opening in 1980, she naturally worked in the plumbing department, and worked there until her retirement.
