Florence was the wife of Ken Willis who had been well known as a Captain in the Falmouth RNXS. They had been involved for many years with boating around Restronguet and Falmouth although for the last years of her life since Ken died she had been living in Lancashire near her daughter. She died in October 2007 at the age of 104 after a short illness. Although somewhat immobilised due to arthritis she remained lively and interested in current issues to the end.
