Florisia (Flossie) Seltzer was born September 16, 1881, in Harisville, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, to Mr. and Mrs. William Seltzer. She married Melvin Leander Andrews August 4, 1902. They lived first in Enon Valley and later in Mahoningtown before moving to the house in Mt. Jackson where she lived the rest of her life. Flossie was just 42 when her husband Melvin died suddenly after a week’s illness in April 1924. Her sons, Dale, Mart, and Ralph, still at home, pitched in and helped financially, but to cope with such loss and responsibility took stamina, which Flossie had in abundance

After raising her own family, Flossie took care of her grandson John for about four years, from the time his mother Veronica died until his father Mart remarried. Devoted to her family and faith, Flossie led a full and busy life. She gardened, canned, sewed, and made her own soap. For several years, she served New Year’s Day dinner to her three sons and their families. She also made beautiful taffeta dresses for her granddaughters Mary Alice and Jean to wear for a piano recital. At the time of her death, December 27, 1959, at age 78, Flossie had 11 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

Pictured here is an early photo of Flossie and her husband Melvin Leander.
