Florence Meredith is a character on the American 1970s sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Best known as Aunt Flo (the aunt of the main character Mary Richards), she was played on a recurring basis by actress Eileen Heckart.

Flo was a journalist who had worked all over the world. She helped spark Mary to become a journalist herself.[citation needed]

She made infrequent visits to Minneapolis to make sure her niece was all right. She also battled Mary's boss, Lou Grant periodically, because she was especially liberal, and he was somewhat conservative. Although, they clashed, there was a spark between the two of them. The two eventually had a quick fling.

After Lou moved to Los Angeles to work at the LA Tribune, Flo made a visit to him, to keep him updated on how Mary was. For despite their differences, they still cared about Mary. (Flo was, in fact, the only character from the Mary Tyler Moore Show to appear on the spinoff Lou Grant, other than Lou, himself.)
