MARY FLORENCE HUNTER MCCAFFREY (nee MCMANUS) On Sunday, May 3, 2009, Florence McCaffrey of McAllen Texas, and formerly of Winnipeg, Manitoba, died at the age of 88. Florence was born in Winnipeg, November 20, 1920 to James and Margaret McManus, the eldest of five children. There she attended St. Ignatius School and then St. Mary's Academy. In 1945 she married Leo Paul Hunter. They were married for 23 years and had a happy life together, producing seven children, all still living. Tragically, Leo died on Feb. 5, 1968, at the age of 47. Florence rejoined the workforce as a switchboard operator for a Winnipeg school division office, until 1981. In 1981 she married Edward McCaffrey, formerly of Winnipeg, but at that time a resident of Lebanon, Indiana. They soon moved to McAllen, Texas and enjoyed many long and happy years together with their friends at the McAllen Mobile Park, spending their summers travelling around North America to visit family and friends. They were married for 27 years. In August 2008 they moved to Brookridge, an independent living facility in Pharr, Texas. Florence spent her final days at Comfort House, also of McAllen. Florence was a strong and optimistic person who overcame many adversities in her life. She had a deep faith and was a devoted Catholic. She was a lovely person, charming and engaging to those around her. She was also an artist, and enjoyed oil painting, in particular, throughout her life. A funeral mass will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church, 1108 W Hackberry Ave., McAllen, on Thursday May 7 at 10:00 a.m.; Monsignor Gustavo Barrera officiating. Funeral arrangements by Kreidler Funeral Home of McAllen. Memorial donations can be made to Comfort House, 617 Dallas Avenue, McALLEN, Texas.
