Florence was born August 7, 1923, in Cameron, Texas, to Thomas and Anna Mae Cook Sheppard.

She was a resident of The Cove of Waterview Assisted Living. Florence and her husband, J.W. Murr, retired to Granbury from Kennedale in 1979. They then moved home to Junction. After J.W. passed away, Florence moved back to Granbury in 2013, to be near her family.

Florence was a member of Granbury Church of Christ, former member of Ladybug Garden Club and last charter member of Daedalian Study Club of Junction and a former Girl Scout Troop Leader.
Her claim to fame: Florence baked her signature cake for family reunions which has became an annual tradition and challenge to duplicate by family reunion attendees.

She was preceded in death by husband of 68 years, J.W. Murr; both parents; sisters, Louise Brison and Theda Marie (Micky) Murr; and brother Keidel Sheppard.
