Flora Marie Packer

JACKSONVILLE — Our sweet mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother went running to Heaven Fri.,  March 22, 2013.

She always has said, “Lord, take me running!” Flora was born in rural East Texas near Bullard and moved from town to town in her youth. She married Vernon J. (Jack) Packer on Christmas Eve 1940. They had three sons: Jerry, Vernon (deceased) and Roddy. Flora spent the last 12 years of her life in Rockwall.

She was a faithful member of First Baptist church of Heath. We will sorely miss this grand lady of the South but Heaven will be much richer with her there.

Funeral services will be held 10 a.m., Tues., March 26, at First Baptist Church of Heath with Rev. Paul Jacobs officiating. Interment will follow in Meador Cemetery in Jacksonville.

The family will receive friends at Rest Haven Funeral Home-Rockwall Chapel on Monday from 6 to 8 p.m.
