Florence "Flo" Martindale

Mrs. Florence “Flo” Martindale, 92, of Bloomington, died Monday, Dec. 2, 2013, at her son’s home in Lebanon.

Born July 11, 1921, in Bloomington, she was the daughter of Levi and Patty Jane (Pedro) Bohall.

Mrs. Martindale retired from R.C.A., and later worked at McDonald’s in Spencer.

She was a longtime and devoted member of the North Central Church of Christ. One knew she was seriously ill if she ever missed a worship service. Mrs. Martindale was an avid reader and was truly a student of the Bible. She was regarded as a Bible scholar by many who knew her, especially because of her ability to quote scripture to fit all kinds of circumstances and settings. She was an inspiration to her family, and especially her great-grandchildren, because of her Bible knowledge.

She is survived by her loving family: her daughter and son-in-law, Diana Sue and Stan Ratts of Mattoon, Ill., her son and daughter-in-law, Denny Anson Martindale and Jama Martindale of Thorntown; her sister, Dorothy Moskos of Bloomington; six grandchildren, Denny Martindale Jr. and April Dawn Williams, both of Washington, Ind., Robert A. Helms of Austin, Texas, Kenneth W. Helms of Atlanta, Ga., and Kelly L. Helms and Deanna L. MacDonald, both of Mattoon; and 13 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, Arlie A. Hall; her second husband, Cleon Martindale; and six siblings.

Visitation is 10 to 11 a.m. today, Dec. 5, at Day Funeral Home Chapel, 4150 E. Third St., Bloomington. The funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. today at the funeral home, with Bro. Rogers officiating. Burial will follow in Methodist Cemetery in Ellettsville.

Memorial contribution may be made to the American Heart Association; or to the North Central Church of Christ.
