Margarette Ernesteen Graham

July 18, 1935 ~ December 3, 2021 (age 86)


Margarette Ernesteen Graham, 86, of Lake City, Florida, passed from this life on December 3, 2021, from natural causes.

She was born to Almon and Zola Beasley, July 18, 1935, in Lake City, Florida. She was a long standing and active member of Branford Ward Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

 Ernesteen is survived by her husband of 67 years Edwin Graham of Lake City, FL; daughters Melanie Daniel (Dave) of Palatka, FL and Kimberly Williams (John) of Saint Augustine, FL; grandchildren Stacey Morris (Jimmy) of Palatka, FL; Brandi Walls (Joe) of Saint Augustine, FL; Justin Freeman (Shea) of Interlachen, FL; Ashley Ravenscroft (Scott) of Jacksonville, FL; Matthew Daniel of Palatka, great-grandchildren Taylor and Morgan Morris, John Caleb and Lydia Walls, Emma and Brody Daniel, Charlie Freeman, and Ruby Ravenscroft, brothers Blaine Beasley (Bonnie) of Clermont, FL; Pete Beasley (Darlene) of Bevilles Corners, FL; Preston Beasley (Lisa) of Eustis, FL and many other nieces, nephews, friends and loved ones.

She was proceeded in death by her parents Almon and Zola Beasley, sisters Colleen Collins and Meritha McCray, brothers Robert and Roy Beasley, and children Eddy Graham and Melissa Freeman.

Ernesteen was the epitome of a Proverbs 31 woman. She was worth far more than precious gems. A priceless treasure to her family. She brought only good and no harm. She had a true servant’s heart as she was always the first to open her arms to those in need. Her words were full of wisdom and her actions echoed her faith. She loved her family and put them above all else, carefully watching the affairs of her household.  Her husband, children, and grandchildren adored her and loved her beyond measure. She was a God-fearing woman whose inward beauty was beyond compare. Many women do noble things, but she surpassed them all.

She is at rest in the arms of the Heavenly Father. She has inherited her reward. We were blessed to call her ours and will love her forever more. She lives on in the hearts and memories of those who loved her. Her legacy of love will be passed on as we strive to love with a heart as pure as hers.

A celebration of her life will be held at Philippi Baptist Church in Lake City, Florida, on Wednesday, December 8th, 2021, beginning with a viewing at 10:00 a.m. followed by a memorial service officiated by Bishop Richie Miles and Councilmen Rodney Nettles at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow the services at Philippi Cemetery. Arrangements provided by Guerry Funeral Home, Lake City.
