Peggy Barnes, 87, longtime resident of Melbourne, Florida, passed away on Saturday, November 9, 2019.

Born August 3, 1932 in Bisbee, Arizona, she was the daughter of the late Grace and Cabell Harding.  She was the second youngest of 11 siblings: Elmer, Bud, Mary Isabelle, Jack, Richard, Donald, Della Pearl, Inis, Iris, and Velva.

She is survived by her husband of 67 years, Russell Barnes, along with daughter, Lisa Barnes; son, Randall Barnes; and grandson, Russell Barnes II.

Peggy was a wonderful and spirited woman, loving mother and wife who loved to travel, play golf, read, and religiously spend her Thursdays playing Bridge at the Eau Gallie Yacht Club for over 30 years.  She loved her family and friends and was always the first one there to offer support or a loving word to any in need.  She was loyal and fierce in her love and protection for her family and provided an inspirational role model for her children to follow.  She will be deeply missed by all.
