Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth forever. Psalm 112:1-3

Angels are sent to earth by God above. Earth needed a beautiful, caring individual, so God lent Florine Lotts Mungin to this world on March 25, 1929, along with her twin, Floyd Lotts to the late Wade & Susie (Pet) Lotts in Hampton County, South Carolina. God blessed this family with this unique, kind spirited individual. Florine Lotts Mungin was commonly called, “Yidda, Momma, Grandma, Aunt Florine, Flo Jo, and Daisy Duke.” She was the “Queen Matriarch” to her family.

She received her early education in Jasper County, South Carolina. Later, she studied cosmetology and earned her nurse’s aide certification. Later in life, she went back to bible school. Florine became an Eastern Star in June of 1979; she was very proud of these accomplishments. Mother Mungin was a member of First Pine Savannah Baptist Church Pineland, South Carolina; Friendship Baptist Church, Ferndale, New York; Deliverance Tabernacle, Paterson, New Jersey; and 35 years at Greater Evangelistic Deliverance Center of Pineland, South Carolina, where she served proudly as the head of the usher board. Florine (Yidda) married John Wesley Mungin in 1949. They lived in Hampton and Jasper County in the early 1950’s. John and Florine moved to Brooklyn, New York, where they briefly resided. Florine had four beautiful children Alvin, Roger, Linda and Edvina. In the mid 1950’s, John and Florine moved to Ferndale and Liberty, New York, in the Catskills Mountains, where many of John’s family had previously relocated. Florine resided in Liberty, New York, with her children until the mid 1960’s. In the mid 1960’s; Florine’s brothers, Jack and Floyd, moved her to Paterson, New Jersey, where she lived until the early 1980’s. She then relocated back to her home in the Rivers Hill Community of Pineland, South Carolina, until she transitioned. During the 1980’s, her daughter, Linda, relocated to Maryland. For many years during the winter months, Momma would stay with her daughter and gained many more sons, daughters, grands, and friends. Wherever she resided, Ferndale or Liberty, New York, Paterson, New Jersey, Maryland, or Rivers Hill, she gained new children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends. Wherever she resided, her doors were always opened and welcoming. We cannot begin to name all the lives she touched, helped, and provided refuge for. God’s plans are not always our plans. When God sent for His angel on March 27, 2022, this was much sooner than we planned, but we’ll brave the grief that comes and try to understand.

Waiting to welcome Florine’s spirit to her Heavenly home will be her parents; husband; her two children, Roger and Edvina; two grandchildren, Alvin, Jr., and Shaka; brothers, Arthur, Floyd, Jack, and Dave; and sisters, Mattie, Mau and Sue.

In her transitioning, she leaves to cherish her precious memories: son, Alvin (Bobby) Lotts; daughter, Linda Mungin Vann; son/nephew, Herbert Lee Rivers; daughter/granddaughter, Kendra (Tiny); grandchildren, Amalia, April, Tamika, Olivia, Creo, Erika, Ashley, Antonio, Kendra, Tamika, Roslyn, Lafayette, Barry (June), Melissa, Tempest, Derrick, Dionne, Jervel, Rodney, Mercedes, Jackie, Shonda, Kevin (Solo), Jamel (Jay), Alonzo (Cricket), Sanford, Tony, Bernard (Bam-Bam), Monica, Karen, Cleveland, Jr. (Junior), Sherrell, Rashea, Zeni, Mike, Tyrone, Quetta, Kevin, Travis and Eric; thirty great-grandchildren; twelve great-great-grandchildren; daughters-in-law, Sherron Lotts and Beverly Mungin; sisters-in-law, Roxanne Lotts, Luevine (Joe) Mungin Davis and Annie Lee Mungin Merrill; special niece, Cora Lee Stevenson; special individuals in her life, Shirley Jones, Sharron Faulkner, Bessie Williams, Delores Moran, and Deborah Ferguson; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and many, many extended family and friends.
