February 12, 2020
WORCESTER, Massachusetts


Florence (Marsoobian) Eknoian, 102 passed away on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at the Meadows of Leicester.

Her husband, Charles J. Eknoian died in 1967. She leaves a son, Peter G. Eknoian and his wife LuAnn of Shrewsbury; six grandchildren; nine-great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews. A daughter, Charlene Millett and her husband Ronald, her siblings, Jack Marsoobian, Gladys Maghakian, Elsie Frankian and Alice Marsoobian predeceased her. She was born in Pattison, NJ daughter of George "Kevork" and Gadar (Vorparian) Marsoobian and graduated from Commerce High School.

A long time member of Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church, Florence also sang in its choir and was a member of the ladies guild. She enjoyed bowling in her younger years, and later, she replaced bowling with trips to the casino for black jack and poker. She was an avid Red Sox fan and enjoyed cooking for her family and the church but her greatest joy was in sharing time with her family and friends.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to all those at the Meadows for the wonderful care given to Florence.

A Visiting Hour will be held Saturday, February 15 from 8:30 to 9:30am in Callahan Fay Caswell Funeral Home, 61 Myrtle St. Followed by a Funeral Service at 10am in Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church, 635 Grove St. Burial will be in Hope Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Florence's church, a place she so loved.
