In Memoriam: Florence Moisson Rice

Longtime, active member of First UU Wilmington, Florence Rice, passed away on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

Florence and her husband, Dick, joined First UU in November 1979 following their transfers to Wilmington for Dupont assignments.

Florence often said that after the first service they attended at First UU, they knew they were at home and became members shortly thereafter.

Unfortunately, Dick died in 1994; Florence later married Bill Rice. For a complete obituary, please click here.

At First UU, Florence’s activities included being Board Chair, Chair of the Membership committee and involvement in several other committees.

After moving to Maris Grove, Florence participated in the Maris Grove Unitarian (Soul Matters) Group. She was very appreciative of their support and friendship.

A Celebration of Florence’s Life will be held Saturday, May 18, at 1:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary of First UU Wilmington. A reception will follow in the Parish Hall. All are welcome.
