06/30/1935 - 02/21/2024
Interment: National Memorial Cemetery

Patsy Lee Gossett (Godfrey/Webb) went to be with our Lord on February 21, 2024. She was a Wife, Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Aunt, Mother-in-Law, and Friend to everyone. She was born on June 30, 1935, in Sayre, OK., to Frederick and Vera Gossett. During her grade school years, her family moved to Phoenix, AZ. and she attended the Madison School District and graduated from North Phoenix High School.

Shortly after graduating from high school, she married her childhood sweetheart Johnny Howard Godfrey. While serving in the USAF, Johnny and Patsy had three children, Debra, Denny (Tina), and Douglas. The Godfrey family spent just over ten years at various Air Force Bases, until which time Johnny was deceased in Vietnam on 11 Jan 1966.

She was proceeded in death by her second husband, Charles Webb, a Teacher and Baseball Coach at Camelback High School in Phoenix, AZ.

Patsy had to be Mom & Dad for the next 5 years, following Johnny’s passing. She knew exactly when to Love you and when to discipline you. She was an excellent bowler, the President of a PTA, the President of our Little League program, she was the coordinator and demonstrator for many products in major department stores, but Cuisinart was her baby, she also took us on several great vacations, she had a sense of humor that was second to none.  And too many other talents and responsibilities that would be hard to duplicate for anyone else.

Patsy loved spending her summers in Greer at their cabin, where she made so many treasured friends.

Mom left behind her five children, Debra, Denny (Tina), Douglas, Deanna, and David (Kellie). She also left behind grandchildren Jacob (Lizzy), Daniel, Bryan, Kacie, Kenny, Mandy, and some great children. She is survived by her sister Barbara Ketcham (Horice), her Sister-in-law Betty and niece Karen. Her brother Donald Gossett proceeded her in death. Mom was also “adopted” by every child in the neighborhood, and many came for her hugs and snacks.

As per Mom’s request, a private family service will be held in her honor.

Mom will be interned at the National Memorial Cemetery in Phoenix, Az. to be reunited in heaven with Johnny and Charlie.

    Please tell me when the service will be held.

  • Patsy was so wonderful to me and my brothers growing up. We would go to the cabin in big bear lake every summer and see them through the years often. We even went to their cabin in Greer one summer and had such an outstanding time. Charlie and Patsy were like grandparents to me. My grandparents Jim and Bobbie, parents Tina and Geoff, and brothers Jimmy and Thomas loved them so much too. Charlie would whistle in the mornings up at the lake and he would make you feel like a movie star when he would greet you with that great smile and a “there he is! Woahhh”. Patsy always made us feel special and her love was felt all the time. They both spent time to be in the moment with us and make us feel special growing up. I will miss her so and Charlie too. They were such wonderful figures and kind spirits. David and Kellie are so great too and the grandkids. They loved you all so much and thought the world of you always! Many wonderful laughs and great memories with them. I have thought of them often through the years and know that God bringing them into our lives was a great blessing and honor. Love you Patsy and Charlie, you are in heaven with God. CJ Luis
