Edna Lee Floyd, 65 passed away surrounded by her family peacefully, on Monday, February 20, 2023.
Edna was born on July 16, 1957, in Savannah, Georgia to her parents Mr. Lester and Beatrice Moore. Edna was educated in Savannah-Chatham County Public School Systems and graduated from Hershel Victor Jenkins High School in 1975. She continued her education at Draughns Junior College, Armstrong State College, and Saint Leo University. Ms. Edna, as she is affectionately called by her co-workers, was a Certified Professional Coder and worked in the medical coding and billing industry for over 40 years.
She enjoyed spending time with her large family; the most favorites included playing cards, singing, and dancing, particularly “shutting the party down with the robot and funky four corners”. Edna was an excellent cook and paid special attention to her children, nieces, and nephews. She instilled class, culture, and fine dining in her family. She taught them etiquette, and the proper way to speak and handle people respectfully.
On any day of the week, Ms. Edna could be seen walking in her high heels with a big smile on her face, and her hair blowing in the wind. She never met a stranger, would give you the shirt off her back, and her heart was made of gold.
Edna is preceded in death by sister Emma Denise Moore and her parents Lester and Beatrice Moore.
Ms. Edna is survived by her husband, Mr. Benjamin Floyd, Jr; her children , Benjamin Floyd ,III, Melissa Phelisha LeCounte ( Dr. John LeCounte), and Lester Marurice Floyd; her siblings Ozzie ( Yvonne) Lawton, Morris ( Valerie) Moore, Larry Moore, Elease Moore, Edith Byrd, and Eilleen ( Dennis) Smith; 6 grandchildren whole host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and her best good friend of over 40 years, Ms. Beverly C. Brown
A viewing will be held on Friday, 2/24/2023, at 3pm at Families First Funeral Care Chapel, 1328 Dean Forest Rd Savannah GA 31405, and is followed up by a service at 4pm.

I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of beloved Cousin Edna Floyd. whenever I would visit my family in Savannah from Detroit Mi, Edna would always prepare a seafood dish for us. What a wonderful cook she was and always accommodating. I recall one year my brothers and I were traveling to Savannah for a deep sea fishing trip and Edna made it a point to prepare a dish of Blackened Flounder and Dirty Rice for us. Oh my goodness it was so delicious!
Whenever I visit Savannah in the future it will not be the same without her, there will be a void!
I will miss here dearly!
