Florence Hume Tryon Stivers
To everyone who knew her, she was the most caring person you could ever hope to meet. Florence Hume Tryon was born in Niagara Falls, New York on May 4, 1935. After college and graduate school, Florence became a nurse in Rochester, New York. With her husband The Rev. Donald Austin Stivers, she lived in Rochester for over a quarter of a century, and raised two children, Margaret and Michael. The family moved to Santa Barbara in late 1982, where Donald served as an Episcopal priest at Christ The King Episcopal Church and Florence participated in many church activities. Florence loved exploring the California coast and Santa Barbara backcountry, leading the family on many adventurous hikes. A small, private service for family members will be held on March 20. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Hospice of Santa Barbara (http://www.hospiceofsb.org).
