Florence E. Kyle was born Florence Wilken. Her mother and father were Carl J. Wilken and Anna (Meyer) Wilken. She was very religious and followed the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church beliefs. She married Carl A. Kyle on June 15, 1947 and stayed married to this one man her entire life. She taught music, math, swimming, and I remember doing artwork with her as a child.
