Ursula Marie Beckley
Palm Bay, FL
Ursula Marie Beckley, 70, of Palm Bay, FL passed away peacefully on May 8, 2014. One of four children born in Brooklyn, New York to the late Emil and Lucy Cacace, Ursula moved to Florida in 1985 where she served as a Teacher's Assistant in the Brevard County school system for children with special needs.
She was a loving sister to the surviving Anthony, Carolina Gilio and Michael; continued friend of her former husband, Patrick, and selflessly devoted mother to Patrick, Kathleen Judin, Susan McCrea and James.
Ursula was the matriarch of a family that included her children by marriage in Donna, Robert, Jim and Tanisha and her grandchildren, who brought great joy to her life: Robert, Karlie, Kailey, Jimmy, Nyasia, Matthew and Sarah.
A woman with a fighting spirit who endured great pain and sacrifice for her children and family. Ursula taught us until her final breath; family above all else. May the Lord's embrace greet her in heaven and may he watch over the people she cherished here on earth.
Services are Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Miller St., Palm Bay.
