Obituary for Florence E. Enockson (Pearson)

Florence E. Enockson, 99, of Atlantic, passed at 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, at Heritage House in Atlantic.

Florence was born June 22, 1918, to Adolph and Anna Pearson in Sioux City, Iowa. She married Don Enockson on December 20, 1941, in South Sioux City, Nebraska. Don and Florence moved to Atlantic and opened Enockson's Ice Cream Store in the spring of 1946. They and their "very special" ice cream were well known in Southwest Iowa for several years.

They sold the store to take over management of the Atlantic Golf and Country Club for 24 very successful years. Don passed on October 29, 1996, and Florence moved to the Heritage House where she enjoyed the later years of her life because of the excellent care and attention of the staff.

Don and Florence were excellent dancers and enjoyed many evenings dancing to the Big Bands. They first met on the dance floor of the Rigadon Ballroom in Sioux City. Florence was an avid bridge player and never turned down the opportunity to compete in this demanding card game.

Survivors include a brother-in-law, Bill Enockson and wife, Mary; sisters-in-law, Shirley Morehead and Miriam Enockson, all from Sioux City; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, June 30, 2017, at Roland Funeral Home. Visitation with the family will be held prior to the service starting at 1:00 p.m. on Friday. As a tribute to Florence and Don's love for ice cream the family invites relatives and friends to join them for a dish immediately following the funeral.

Burial will be held in the Atlantic Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to Heritage House or St. Croix Hospice
