Mrs. Floria D. Lowe was a native of Leslie, Georgia born to Joseph Johnson and Thelma Lewis Johnson. She lived in Tampa for 44 years before relocating to Columbus, GA for the past 10 years until God decided to call her home.
She moved to Tampa, FL in 1966 and graduated from Blake High School and decided to further her education with Hillsborough Community College where she earned an Associate’s degree in Liberal Arts; Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from USF; and Master’s degree in Psychology from Springfield College. She was a devoted substance abuse counselor and program coordinator for DACCO for over 24 years before retiring. She was affectionately known as “Ms. Flo” to the many lives that she touched and was praised for her dedication and efforts in going above and beyond her job description to meet their needs.
She obeyed the gospel under the teachings of Minister Luis R. Lugo at Highland Avenue Church of Christ 38 years ago. She was a devoted Christian who loved the lord and was always willing to extend a helping hand to all in need. She was a faithful member of the Box Springs Church of Christ until her health failed her.
