Remaining Questions: Who is Florence?

During one of Harry's visits to Dumbledore's office, Dumbledore shows him (or simply lets him see) the form of a girl slowly revolving in the Pensieve. This is not Trelawney but apparently an un-named Hogwarts student. She seems to be from a previous generation (not Harry's). She has come to tattle on a boy she saw, behind the greenhouses, kissing a girl named Florence.

Dumbledore looks at the image of the girl and asks (as if speaking to the girl) why she even followed the boy to see what he was up to....

Jo never, as far as I can recall, returns to this topic. Is this a sub-plot she decided to drop, realizing it couldn't be worked into Deathly Hallows?

Aby, that girl who tattled on the boy kissing Florence behind the greenhouse was Bertha Jorkins, remember? Dumbledore asked, "Why, Bertha, did you have to follow him?"

Not sure what the rationale was for showing us that specific memory of Bertha Jorkins tattling. Maybe it was just to tell us that Bertha was a rather inquisitive witch and as thus, she tended to get into trouble.
