Wahl was a Milaca business woman from the 1930s to the 1960s. She and
her husband, Ole, owned and operated the Wahl Beverage Company, “the
Coke Plant,” where she was the bookkeeper. After his death in 1936 she
became the sole proprietor.

Florence was one of the few business women in Milaca during those
times. She managed a crew of up to a dozen male employees. Her firm
