Florence K. Brittle passed away peacefully Sunday morning, July 14, 2019 in Charlottesville, Virginia after a long illness. She was the daughter of Nicholas and Georgia Koumaris. She was 92.
Near the end of WWII she was recruited by the Department of the Army to come to Washington, D.C., to help with the War Effort, and attended their code breaking school at the Pentagon. After the war ended, she worked at Fort Belvoir where she met and married her husband, Lewis M. Brittle. She later worked for many years for the Army Material Command.
She was an accomplished artist and loved painting china and watercolors. She loved to travel, especially to the mountains and the beach. She was a constant reader, always striving to improve her mind. She enjoyed music and writing poetry, and above all else loved walking along the Potomac River.
She is survived by her daughter Jayne, granddaughter Jenna and son-in-law Jim of Charlottesville, sister Violet and numerous nieces and nephews. She was loved and will be missed.
