Margaret Louise Biddle, 89, of Eustis, FL passed away Thursday, November 9, 2023.
She was born in Hastings, FL and grew up in the Palatka area. In 1953 she graduated from Putnam High School and married the love of her life and high school sweetheart, Richard. Margaret worked in the trucking industry but chose to be a full-time homemaker after her children were born. Margaret and Richard raised their 4 daughters in the Altamonte Springs area until job transfers took them to Colorado, Alabama, and Arkansas, and retirement brought them home to Florida in 2000.
She enjoyed golfing, boating, and spending time with her family. She dedicated her life to being the sweetest and most loving mother, grandmother, and wife. She was a kind and true Southern lady and a blessing to those who knew her. We will forever miss her hugs, beautiful smile, and gentle ways.
