Frost, Florence, 1929-


Florence Frost was born March 24, 1929 in Brooklyn, New York. She married Robert L. Frost in 1949 and had three daughters. Not long after she moved from New York City to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1960, she joined Temple Beth Sholom, where she worked as an executive secretary for two years. Frost worked in the banking industry for many years before she earned her broker's license in 1974. That same year, she opened her own real estate office in Las Vegas, Rancho Rodeo Realty, which she owned until 2004. She was also a two-term president of the Women's League beginning in 1970, established the Fifty-Five Plus Club for seniors, and served on the congregation's board of directors for many years.

Frost was also an alumna and former employee of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. There, she earned a degree in gerontology, was a founding member of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), and worked in the Continuing Education Office. Frost's other leadership roles in the Jewish community included: chair of the Anti-Defamation League committee of B'nai B'rith, president of the National Council of Jewish Women, and president of the Las Vegas chapter of the Brandeis National Committee from 2010-2011.
