PORTAGE - Florence Levzow, 91, of Portage, went home when God answered our prayers on March 28, 2017.

Florence was known for her kind and loving heart, and the willingness to help anyone, anytime and anyway possible.

She is preceded in death by her parents, George and Hattie Bolgrin; her husband, Oliver; brothers, Floyd and Harlan; sisters, Lucille and Alice; and many of her in-laws and family members.

Special thanks to the nurses and aides of Tivoli who cared for Florence the last eight years, and to Agrace Hospice staff for making her comfortable in her final days.

Thanks to Monica Holden, Tom Drury and Nancy Davis for their spiritual and inspirational guidance during our family’s time of need and you were there when you were most needed.
