Florence Forish, 96, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, February 19, 2019. She was born to the late Joseph and Rose Lesnieski, January 18, 1923 in Erie, Pa, where she lived her entire life.
 
She married the late Stephen Forish on September 21, 1946, in Erie and they were happily married for over 60 years. They had two sons, Thomas and Terrence. Florence was preceded in death by her loving husband Stephen and son Thomas in 2006; sister Phyllis and brothers Stanley and Joseph. She is survived by her son Terrence, his wife Deborah, daughters, Jennifer (William) and Jessica, great granddaughters, Sophia and Briana, and niece Margaret who was instrumental in assisting with Florence’s care these last few months.
 
Florence lived a full and active life until age and illness slowed her down in her later years. She was dedicated to her family and a faithful, loyal servant of Christ for many years through her St. Luke Church community.
