Florence Mary Stoffel was born on April 9, 1931 in Vermillion, MN, the daughter of Joseph and Martha (Meisch) Stoffel. She graduated from Hastings High School in 1949 and married Merlyn R. Munson on July 14, 1956 in Hudson, WI.
She was employed for 35 years at Kid Duds in Cannon Falls, until retiring. As she was one to keep busy, she continued to work at the Hi-Quality Bakery, Hardees, and Gemini.

Florence volunteered with Meals on Wheels and was by her husband’s side with his activities. She was an avid card player, and enjoyed her time playing cards at the Trophy House.
