Madison / Detroit - Florence M. Briody, age 101, passed away on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 surrounded by her family at All Saints Assisted Living, Madison, WI. Florence graduated from Hart (MI) High School, and went on to attend Detroit Business University, class of 1937. She was united in marriage to John M. Briody on May 20, 1950.

Florence was a kind, gentle soul who adored her family. She was a superb homemaker who could cook, bake, sew, and garden with great results. Her apple pies were legendary. Florence enjoyed playing various card games, watching sports and attending Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings games, but it was her family that provided her the greatest joy. Her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren gave her eyes a special sparkle. Florence had a strong determination as evidenced by her longevity, overcoming many life challenges including breast cancer in 1974. She will be missed by all.

Florence is survived by her children, John P. (Loretta) Briody, Kathleen A. (Michael) Lipp and Robert E. (Nancy) Briody; her grandchildren, Sam (Amanda) and Max Lipp and Kelly and Jeff Briody; her great-grandchildren, Madeline and Hadley Lipp; her sister-in-law, Lisa Johnson; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, John; her siblings, Dorothy (Al) Port, Aina (Alden) Lindberg, and Edwin Johnson; and her granddaughter, Linda M. Lipp. Services will be held at a later date. Interment will be held at St. Hedwig Cemetery in Dearborn, Michigan.

The family sends a huge thank you to the staffs at All Saints Senior Apartments and Assisted Living units as well as Agrace HospiceCare.

Memorials may be made to Breast Cancer Research Foundation, 60 East 56th Street, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10022.
