Obituary

Bessie Sue Floyd was born April 17, 1955, to the late Arlene Savage and the late Severn Richardson. She transitioned from this life on January 18, 2020, at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital.

She was educated in the Accomack County Public School System and graduated from Central High School in Painter, VA. She continued her education and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Norfolk State University.

Bessie started her career as a Social Worker with the Accomack County Department of Social Services. She faithfully served the Eastern Shore community for 42 years. She was affectionally called “Miss Social Services” by family and friends. Bessie considered her co-workers as “family” and truly enjoyed working beside them.

Bessie accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at a young age. She was a member of the New Mount Calvary Baptist church in Exmore, Virginia, where she served with the Ushers Ministry.

Bessie was preceded in death by her beloved mother, Arlene Savage; father, Severn Richardson; grandmother, Betty Savage; grandfather, Arthur Savage; brothers, James Richard Savage and Preston Dean; aunts, Bertie Burton and Margaret Johnson.

We are thankful that Bessie graced our lives and leaves to always cherish her memory: two daughters; LaShonda Floyd and Andrea Floyd; six grandchildren, Jamaari, Makhia, Tavion, Trevelle, Taliah, Jaakai; six sisters, Lula Mae Savage, Annette (Isaac) Jackson, Donnell Savage Hounshell, Laverne Dean, Jennifer Raynor, Faith Richardson; five brothers, Willard Savage, Vernon (Mary) Savage, Connell (Vickie) Savage, Steven (Jessica) Dean, Orlando Dean; uncle, Joseph (Julia) Savage; aunt, Vivian Needam; special friend of twenty-five years, Bonnie Munn; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, church family, Order of the Eastern Star sisters, Mason brothers, and friends.

Psalms 121:7-8 "The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil; he shall preserver thy soul. The Lord shall preserve they going out and they coming in from this time forth and even for forevermore."
God has never shirked his responsibility to his children. Bad things may of course happen to good people. Bessie may have suffered the pain of this cancer, but in the end her earthy body that was encumbered, is now cast off so that her Spirit may walk freely in Heaven. So family, please remember that the faithful are rewarded and in Heaven their souls are at last safe and secure in everlasting peace. Please know that the love of God will be with you today as you endure the lost of someone so dear. Be confident in your faith, knowing that Bessie is in the sweet embrace of God.
All my thoughts are with you.
Sister Elizabeth Wilson
