Elsie Mae Godbey, 97, of Edinburg, Illinois, died on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at her home. Elsie was born in Blue Mound, Illinois on May 1, 1921, to John Thornton and Etta Belle Buchter. She was the sixth of seven children. She attended the Blue Mound Public Schools. After her high school graduation, Elsie worked as a Dental Assistant to Dr. “Doc” Jordan in Blue Mound. Elsie married Thaxton “Red” Godbey on July 27, 1947. After her marriage, Elsie was a homemaker and became a bus driver for the Edinburg School District, until she retired at age 70.

Elsie was loved by the neighborhood children who would recount stories of playing in her big yard after school and during the summer. Elsie was often seen throwing baseballs for the players and joining in other activities, as the children loved the time she would spend with them. She also spent many hours with her granddaughters, Breezi and Lacee, watching them after school. Her apple trees were the talk of friends who enjoyed the fruit for pie making and other special bakery treats.
