Florence was born September 30, 1923, to Joseph and Mary (Cihlar) Chermak in Lowry. She was baptized at St. John Nepomuk Church and confirmed at St. Mary’s Church in Alexandria. The family moved to Alexandria and Florence attended and graduated from Alexandria Public Schools. She attended St. Cloud Business College for a year and returned to Alexandria where she worked at Gamble Robinson. She then worked for the Douglas County Courthouse for many years. Florence was united in marriage to Delmer Pomeranz on June 21, 1949, at St. Mary’s Church in Alexandria. Following their marriage, they farmed for five years before they purchased the Urbank Locker Plant. Together they worked side by side for 45 years at the meat locker and raised their family in Urbank. Florence loved old time music and dancing was her favorite past time. She also enjoyed playing cards, bingo, road trips and trips to the casino. Delmer and Florence moved in to St. Williams Living Center in Parkers Prairie in 2013. Florence was in her glory when she was surrounded by her family and friends. She will be dearly missed.
