Florence Ondrick

Florence Augusta Ondrick, 93, of Austin, died at Parkview Care Center in Wells Thursday evening, July 21, 2011.

Born July 10, 1918, to Otto and Lena (Putz) Patzoldt at Pine City, in east central Minnesota, she attended Pine County public schools. In 1936, she married Archie Soderbeck in Pine City. Archie passed away in 1956. Florence married Earl Ondrick on Dec. 14, 1957, at First United Methodist Church in Austin where she was a member. She liked to help Earl do carpenter work and also enjoyed sewing, gardening and having coffee with friends. An Austin resident for more than 50 years, she moved to the Cedars in 2007. Florence was very considerate of others. Not wanting others to be burdened by her, she even pre-planned her final wishes.

Survivors include nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lena and Otto Patzoldt; husband, Archie in 1956 and her husband, Earl in 2007; three brothers and two sisters.
