Kingston, NH - Mrs. Florence M. Anketell, of Kingston, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at the Hyder Family Hospice House in Dover. She was 71.
She was born and raised in Lynn, MA and graduated from Lynn Classical High School. She enjoyed many roles in her career, from her bookkeeping positions at Steven's Quality Instruments and Cabot House to her much-loved position at Jennifer's Hallmark where she had the opportunity to do a little window designing. She was a member of the Kingston Area Junior Women's Club for several years where she enjoyed adding value to the community in which she lived.
Florence (Flo) leaves behind her husband and best friend of 39 years, William Anketell. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughter, Natalie Jacobs and her husband James of Raymond. She also leaves behind her dear friend Fred Drelick of Kingston who was always by her side.
One could always find Flo putting her finishing touches on something, whether it be a printed napkin at a dinner table or adding "bling" to a friend's gift. Although not a fan of winter, she loved the summer and would spend all day in her garden, something that will continue to bloom year after year. What she cherished the most were people. Whether it be her family and friends or a total stranger She would often show her appreciation by delivering bags of chocolate to all who touched her life.
At the family's request all services shall be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hyder Family Hospice House, c/o Friends of Hyder Family Hospice House, 285 County Farm Road, Dover, NH 03820. An online guestbook is available at www.DirectCremationSeacoast.com.

Bill, Rick and I can't begin to express how sad we are with the passing off Florence. We loved it when we got together at your home, and when both of you came up to see us. All I can say is in the words of Florence, she was a hoot. Several years ago she gave me an angel magnet which is on my fridge. Now she is the angel at rest in my heart.
