Edna Christine DePratter Godwin, 92, of Blackshear, passed away Saturday, September 7, 2019, at the Hospice Satilla Hospice House in Waycross, following a short illness.

Born in Hickox June 16, 1927, she had lived in Pierce County most of her life. She had worked for the former Pierce Trading Company prior to going to work with her husband as a bookkeeper at his business, Godwin’s Body Shop.  She continued to work there for several years after her husband sold the business to his nephew, Mike Godwin. She loved to work in her yard and to cook and so enjoyed having her family over for all occasions. She was a member of First Baptist Church and the Alathean Sunday school class. She was a loving wife, mother and was a proud grandmother and great-grandmother. 

She was a daughter of the late Eddie and Mattie Strickland DePratter. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Clyde Lewis Godwin; her sister, Lottie Mae Grant and by all three of her brothers, Eugene DePratter, Arnold DePratter and Oscar DePratter.

Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law, Diane and David Crawford, Brunswick; her granddaughter, Kristin (Ian) Kaszans; her twin grandsons, Aidan and James Kaszans; her brother-in-law, Clinton Godwin, Blackshear and several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Visitation will be held from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, at the funeral home. 

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, from the First Baptist Church.

Interment will follow in the Blackshear Cemetery.
