Mrs. Edna Christine DePratter Godwin, 92 of Blackshear, passed away Saturday, September 7, 2019 at the Hospice Satilla Hospice House following a short illness.
Born in Hickox, GA on June 16, 1927, she had lived in Pierce County most of her life. Mrs. Godwin 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.

Mrs. Godwin was a loving wife, mother and was a proud grandmother and great grandmother.
She was a daughter of the late Eddie & 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 & David Crawford of Brunswick; her granddaughter, Kristin (Ian) Kaszans; her twin grandsons, Aidan and James Kaszans; her brother-in-law, Clinton Godwin of Blackshear; and several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.
