Florence Mullen (Pfund) - Year Entered 1959

Florence Mullen (Pfund)



Florence Vera Mullen Pfund was born June 14, 1940 and passed peacefully in her sleep July 19, 2018 in Pickens, South Carolina. Florence suffered from seizures that were eventually controlled by medications. However, in the last few months of her life, her neurologist was titrating the medication because of potentially dangerous levels of the medication in her system. It is thought that she passed from a stroke brought on by a seizure that occurred in her sleep.

 Florence Mullen was the first female, Canadian co-ed to attend Ambassador College in Pasadena, California. This is where she met the love of her life, Avon Pfund. On August 14, 1960, Florence and Avon were married and shortly thereafter started their life’s adventure in Big Sandy, Texas to assist in the start-up of Imperial School and Ambassador College. Florence and Avon gave birth to two children while in Big Sandy: Victor Henry and Nicole Maureen Turner.

 Florence is survived by husband Avon; daughter Nicole; son-in-law Sam Turner; son Victor; daughter-in-law Alicia and Granddaughter Gabrielle Nicole Pfund. One of Florence’s greatest joys was to see her Granddaughter, Gabrielle graduate Suma Cum Laude from Pepperdine with a double major; and then be accepted to a PhD Program at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

 Many knew Florence as the “Girl with the Ever-present Smile”—and that is how she lived her life. While there were many struggles in her life, she always kept that perpetual smile and attitude. And those who knew her were better for it.
