Dear Boyer Community,

It is with incredible sadness that I share with you that Florence Brown Palmore passed away on Saturday, February 26. We were informed two weeks ago that her health had been gradually improving. Since then, however, she became ill again and her condition declined very rapidly. Her family was with her at the end to provide her comfort and peace.

More information about final arrangements will be shared as they are available. Until then, please keep Florence’s family in your thoughts.
Florence dedicated so much of her life to the students, faculty and staff of the Boyer College, Center for the Performing and Cinematic Arts and Temple University. She was the true matriarch of the college as she kept things running smoothly and kept us all connected. She did that with her family at Temple and with her family at home, and did so with an incredible amount of humor, grace, kindness, compassion and pride. This loss is immense.

As we grieve this tremendous loss together, we remember Florence’s dedication, strength, and toughness alongside her tenderness and caring. None of us will be the same without her, but we are all better because of her.
Robert Stroker
