Florence "Flo" P. Hollar, 72, of Palm Bay, Fla., gained her angel wings Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019, at Daniels Child Hospice House in Palm Bay.

She was a resident of Palm Bay for four short years, where she loved and enjoyed the convenience of shopping, with a summer residence in Indian Lake Estates in Lake Toxaway.

Born Nov. 15, 1946, on the Naval Station Norfolk, in Norfolk, Va., she was the daughter of the late Stanley A. Wilk and Lorraine Carlson Wilk, who passed in Virginia. She grew up in Long Island, N.Y., moved to Brevard in 1989, and worked at First Citizens Bank for many years. She met her husband, Jerry, June 4, 1993, on a blind date, and later married her true love June 9, 2001, at the Elks Lodge in Brevard.

She enjoyed her pets, cooking and baking, and was known for her delicious New York style cheesecakes.

She also enjoyed shopping with her daughter, Laraine; traveling to many places with her husband, Jerry; spending time with friends and family; and had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband, Jerry Hollar, of Palm Bay; daughter, Laraine Kerber and fiancé, Isaac Riddle, of Brevard; son, Robert Kerber, of Asheville; half-sister, Kathy Dernbach, of Jacksonville, Fla .; brother, Tom Wilk and wife, Susan Wilk, of New York; grandchildren, Marquel Kerber, Alexis Robinson, Ashlyn Kerber and Kyree Whitesides, all of Brevard; great-grandchildren, Kaelen Anthony Lynch and Lennox Valice Kerber, also of Brevard; two nieces, Stacy and Amy Wilk; nephew, Brian Wilk; special godson, Al Gibaldi; and a special friend she grew up with since second grade, Patricia Gibaldi, of New York.

She and her husband also have special friends, Joan and Butch Kiser-Andre, of Sebastian, Fla., that loved them dearly.

A Celebration of Life service for Flo will take place at 3 p.m. at Moody-Connolly Funeral Home in Brevard, Saturday, May 18, 2019.

Immediately following the service, there will be a drop-in reception to receive family and friends at the United Community Bank in Straus Park, in the event room.
