Then she received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Bob Jones College in 1945, where she majored in religions and minored in English. Flora then taught school at Aroostook Central Institute in Mars Hill for two years . After she married Glenn Duff on June 27, 1946, she worked as a homemaker for several years before returning to teaching in Hodgdon from 1966 to 1984. Throughout her life, she and Glenn were very involved in their church, East Hodgdon Bible Church. They commonly played host to missionaries and guest speakers. Flora was involved in the Ladies’ Aid, Missionary Circle, Awana, and choir. She also taught Sunday School. Flora was known for her home cooking and hospitality. Her hobbies were sewing, crocheting, and watching birds. Her forays into selling Avon, Swipe, and Shaklee were largely an expression of her sociability. She had a cheerful and loving spirit.
