She was the ninth of 12 children, so she learned to become very self-sufficient. Flossie married Grant Anderson on August 15, 1946. Flossie embraced being the wife of a rancher and worked alongside her husband for many years. Flossie and Grant worked hard and prided themselves on raising excellent cattle, riding good horses and being great stewards of the land and their ranch. Flossie put her blood, sweat and tears into the land, even working the ranch herself after the passing of her husband. She also enjoyed working in her yard and having a big garden, sharing her goodies with friends and family. Flossie was known around the country for her delicious pink beans and freshly baked pies. Grant and Flossie raised two beautiful daughters, Dorothy and Shirley. They taught them a good work ethic and encouraged them to participate in many activities. Flossie was a 4-H member herself and a 4-H leader for many years. She enjoyed hauling her daughters to many horse events, and later in life watching her daughters and granddaughter participate in horse events. Flossie was very involved in the San Luis Obispo County CowBelles, later known as the CattleWomen. She held various offices in the organization, including president. Flossie was one of the founding members of the CowBelle Trail Ride and was secretary of the event for 32 years. Flossie was honored by her peers as San Luis Obispo County CattleWoman of the Year and CowBelle Mom of the Year. Flossie is survived by daughter Dorothy Seymour and husband John, of Dillon, Montana, and daughter Shirley Williams and husband Tom, of Idaho Falls, Idaho. She is also survived by granddaughter Tammy Neal and husband Jason, and by great-grandson Tristan Neal, all of Smyer, Texas.
