NEWPORT NEWS, VA - Florine Mahone Palmer formerly of Seaford, York County, VA, died on September 26 at the age of 94. She was a native of Newport News, born of her parents Robert B. Mahone and Molly D. Mahone on April 14, 1920.

She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 73 years, Charles L Palmer, her son Robert R. Palmer and his wife Mary of Midlothian, VA, her daughter C. Lynn Palmer Ripley and her husband Robert of Gloucester VA, four grandchildren, one step grandchild, six great grandchildren, and two nieces and one nephew.

She was preceded in death by her son, Charles L. Palmer Jr. of Grass Valley, California, sister, Mildred Mahone Joy of Lompoc, California, and her sister, Mrs. Geraldine Mahoney of Oklahoma City, OK.

She retired in 1981 as an elementary teacher at Robert E. Lee School in Hampton. In appreciation of her many years as a teacher she was awarded a lifetime PTA membership by the Lee School PTA following her retirement. After retirement, her love of children was evident as she substituted another 15 years as requested by teachers at Robert E. Lee, Tucker Capps and Bryan schools. In retirement she became a lifetime member of the VA Retirement Assn, and a member of the Hampton and York County Retired Teachers Assn. For many years she enjoyed her association with Members of the VFWC activities.

 

   
 
 


She was a former member of the Colonial Place Woman's Club in Hampton, a member and past President of the Woman's Club of Seaford and a member of the Yorktown Woman's Club. She also served as Docent for the Yorktown Waterman's Museum for many years beginning in 1981.

She attended Westhampton College after graduation from Newport News High School in 1938, and was active for many years in the local Alumni Assn.

Later she graduated from ODU and received a BS Degree in Elementary Education. It was being in the classroom with her students, where she touched the lives of so many young people, that made her feel fulfilled.

As a member of Hampton Roads Power Squadron and Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 63, she and her husband Charlie enjoyed many years of cruising on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Their children enjoyed the many outings they had as a family when they were growing up in Hampton.

Servant of God, Well Done!

Words by Charles Wesley (28 Dec 1707 - 29 Mar 1788)
Music by
George J. Elvey (27 Mar 1816 - 09 Dec 1893)

(The Methodist Hymnal, 1966, #288)

Wesley wrote this hymn in 1770 on the occasion of the death of clergyman George White.
Elvey's tune, "Diademata", has been set to several other hymns, notably "Crown Him with Many Thorns" and "Soldiers of Christ, Arise".
 

 Servant of God, well done!
Thy glorious warfare’s past;
The battle’s fought, the race is won,
And thou art crowned at last.

With saints enthroned on high,
Thou dost thy Lord proclaim,
And still to God salvation cry,
Salvation to the Lamb!

O happy, happy soul!
In ecstasies of praise,
Long as eternal ages roll,
Thou seest Thy Savior’s face.

Redeemed from earth and pain,
Ah! when shall we ascend,
And all in Jesus’ presence reign
With our translated friend?
