Obituary: Florence Sheldon
Florence Sheldon, age 75, of Rhinelander, died February 4, 2016 at the Seasons of Life Hospice, in Woodruff. She was born November 14, 1940 in Milwaukee to Edward and Mildred (Dixon) Corby. Florence attended schools in Milwaukee and shortly thereafter, on January 11, 1958, she married Dennis Sheldon. They just celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary. In 1984 they moved to Rhinelander and have lived here since. In Rhinelander, Florence was employed by the Holiday Inn for 15 years before a health issue forced her retirement.
Florence and Dennis enjoyed traveling, especially to Nashville and Branson. Her husband Dennis sang and played guitar at many places over the years, and Florence enjoyed tagging along. When she stayed at home she enjoyed doing crossword puzzles.
Florence is survived by her husband Dennis, her sisters; Marilyn, Ruth and Patsy, her brothers; Edward, Dale and David, many nieces, nephews, other family and many friends. She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers.
