It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our cherished mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Margaret Floyd Burgess, who left us peacefully at the age of 93 in Viera, FL. Her legacy will live on through her children Connie, Clare, Max (Jan), Robin (Rich), and Scott, as well as her six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Margaret was born in Blackland, MS and moved to Memphis, TN as a young adult to pursue a career in interior design. It was there that she met her husband of 64 years, Col. Robert L. Burgess. The couple shared a deep love and mutual respect that served as a model for their children and grandchildren, and will live on for generations to come.
We are grateful for the memories we shared with the matriarch of our family, and we take comfort in knowing that she is now reunited with her beloved husband in Heaven.
A Requiem Mass will be held on Saturday, March 4 at 10 am at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, 7200 N. Wickham Rd., Melbourne. Interment will take place at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her memory to the Arthritis Foundation.
