Florence Alberta ‘Flo’ Wilson
Florence Alberta “Flo” Wilson, 83, of Newcastle, went to be with her Lord and his angels on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021. Born on Sept. 12, 1937, she was the second of eight children of Scott Peck and Florence Alberta (Robinson) Tietjens.
Flo was born and raised on a farm in Arnold, Nebraska. She loved telling stories about the many escapades she and her siblings shared and the antics of her favorite uncles, Bill and Finch. Flo loved and never forgot her Nebraska roots. She wore her “Corn Huskers” attire as proudly as she did her “Grandma.”
After high school graduation, she attended nursing school in Lincoln, Nebraska. There she met a young man from Oklahoma stationed at Lincoln Air Force Base. Flo and Roy Wilson were married on June 14, 1959 in Stapleton, Nebraska.
Flo graduated from nursing school and Roy was discharged from the Air Force and in September of 1959, the young newlyweds moved to Oklahoma City to begin their life together. In 1968, they moved the family to their farm in Newcastle. Flo truly enjoyed her hay bale decorations displayed out front on Hwy. 62.
Along with her nursing career, Flo was a nursing instructor for several area vocational technical schools. She received a Master’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Central Oklahoma. Flo was a member of the First Baptist Church in Newcastle and the Tri City Cowboy and Country Church.
Flo is survived by: her husband, Roy; sons, Johnny and Jerry; son, James “Jimmy” and daughter-in-law, Cheryl; grandson, Scott; grandson, Christopher and granddaughter-in-law, Kristian; great grandchildren Diesel, Kota, and Kora; two brothers and their wives, Frank and Regina Tietjens of Newcastle, and Beverley and Rosaria Tietjens of Virginia; along with numerous other loved ones.
Me Ma will always be with us in our hearts and in our memories.
