Model-perfect make-up, every hair in her puffy dark bob in its assigned position.

Loss leads Southborough woman to new life

Southborough - When Florence Beatrice, 88, lost her oldest son, James, to suicide in 1998, she was devastated. At the time she was living in Natick in the same house she had raised her children. At the request of her remaining children, Anthony, who lives in Milford, and Florence, who lives in Ashland, Beatrice moved to Southborough to be near both of them and their families. In her new home, a condominium built in the Wildwood Lane senior living development, Beatrice found herself among friendly, helpful neighbors who made her feel safe and welcome.
