Countryside Floral and Garden, a 28-year-old flower shop along Northwest Gilman Boulevard, changed hands recently after the founders sold the business to a longtime employee.

Founders Marcia Gilbert and Patty Millage sold the business to Jon Throne, Gilbert and Millage announced in a Nov. 30 email to customers and community members.

“Jon will be taking Countryside to new and better horizons, and we know that he will take great care of you all,” they wrote.

Gilbert and Millage established the shop and gained a reputation among customers for friendliness and quality.

“We have always felt so blessed to be a part of the sacramental moments in your lives,” they wrote “Births, deaths, love, marriage, illness, return to health, all sorts of celebrations. It is now your turn to witness a sacramental moment in our lives.”
