Jo Schramm is owner and president of Flowers from the Heart, 9290 Buckley Hall Road, Mathews, an established floral shop of more than 60 years.
Wanting a business she could enjoy with her daughter Sarah, Schramm purchased the company about a year and a half ago from her cousin Theresa Morgan. “It fit the bill perfectly,” she said, “and allowed the business to stay in the family.”
The flower shop offers fresh flowers, of course, and more: silks, gifts, bows, sympathy items, home décor, and soon will have painted and repurposed items, Schramm added.
Schramm last lived in Winchester before moving to Mathews, where she visited relatives in the summer; her mother was from the county. Her business background is in construction and bookkeeping, and Schramm adds, “This is my retirement.”
In addition to Theresa and Sarah, Schramm also thanked her cousin Mary Ellen Edwards, Theresa’s mother, for her involvement and interest in the company.
