Augusta Elizabeth Davis Beard
Dunedin — Born in Gordon, Georgia, and raised in Canton, Augusta passed away at home in Dunedin, Florida Tuesday, July 9, 2013.
Augusta’s goal in life was to be a good wife and mother and she excelled in those roles. She also served others through her involvement in local charitable, community and political organizations. She traveled with her husband George S. Beard during his 30 years of military service caring for him until his passing.
Until the day of her passing, “Grandma” remained the strongest supporter and cheerleader for her daughters’ families, Betsy, Khosrow, Tahereh and Mashallah Behbehani, her “Texas family”; and Mare’ Beard-Smith, Walt, Kelley and Daniel Smith, her “Dunedin” family. Her sister Edna Kelly and family reside in Canton.
Augusta will always be loved and missed. Funeral mass is at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 23 at Holy Family Catholic Church in St. Petersburg, Florida with internment to follow at Bay Pines Cemetery.
