Kiendle, Florence, 95, lifelong resident of Farmingdale, passed away May 13, 2023. Reunited in heaven with her beloved husband of 35 years, Frank. Loving mother of Gary, Judy Cimorelli (the late Tom), Kevin, and Keith (Karolyn). Cherished grandmother of Rachel Lemire (James), Paul (Courtney), Jessica Bua (Nick), Jennifer, Kyle, and Ryan. Adored great-grandmother of Stella, Skye, Logan, Addison and Emersyn. Predeceased by her brothers, Walter, Peter and Fred. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Florence was a devout Catholic and a lifelong dedicated parishioner of St. Kilian Parish. Her family was the light of her life, and she had a special relationship with each of them. Florence was their biggest support system, whether she agreed with the decision or not. She was witty, sharp, and sarcastic but loving, loyal, and supportive. She was a die-hard Mets and Rangers fan. Florence was an avid reader of James Patterson and David Balducci novels. She would get lost in their books, finishing them in as little as a few days. Florence was creative and artistic, she enjoyed sewing, painting ceramics, drawing, making stuffed animals and Raggedy Anne and Andy dolls. She was a simple woman when it came to food, she would eat leftovers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner but her favorite was her daughter’s angel hair pasta with meatballs and Arby’s roast beef sandwiches. Florence’s love and support will be missed by her family. The family will receive visitors Thursday, May 18th, 2-4 and 7-9 pm at Arthur F. White Funeral Home, Inc., 315 Conklin Street, Farmingdale. Funeral Mass Friday, May 19th, 9:45 am at St. Kilian RC Church. Interment following at Long Island National Cemetery.
