Diane “Dee” Godwin, 58, passed away on Friday, October 9, 2020 in Pensacola, FL. Dee was born in Marquette, Michigan to Marvin and Shirley Cooley. She relocated to Pensacola FL where she served the community as a real estate agent and small business owner.

Dee was a loving and caring wife, mother, Nana, sister, and friend. Dee’s quick-witted humor, kind honesty, and strong work ethic made her the beautiful person who was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. For those who knew her, it was evident that her family and puppies brought her the most joy.

Dee was preceded in death by her father, Marvin Cooley Sr.; her mother, Shirley (Williams) Cooley; her father-in-law, Thomas “Buddy” Godwin; mother-in-law, Arlean (Conti) Godwin; and fur babies Scooter, Abby, and Bella. She is survived by her husband, Alfred “Buddy” Godwin; children, Donny Baugher (Kim), Dusti Labbie (James), Daron Godwin (Kristi); grandchildren, Baleigh Labbie, Hunter Labbie, Dylan Labbie, Miranda Godwin, and Dawson Godwin; brothers, Marvin Cooley Jr., Gary Cooley (Kara), and Gregory Cooley (Gaynor); and her four-legged babies Vinnie and Rosa.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to Dr. Kathryn Price for being such a great physician and friend to Dee for many years. They also want to thank Father John Licari and the staff at St. Anne’s for their support in such a difficult time.

A memorial mass will be held on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 11:00 am in the Family Life Center of St. Anne’s Catholic Church – Bellview in Pensacola, FL. Due to COVID the family is providing a live streaming service in addition to the in person memorial mass

In remembrance of Dee’s life and her love for animals, the family asks that any charitable donations be made to an animal rescue of your choice.

There are so many memories being Dianes friend since 9th grade and beyond , 15 - 58 yrs old. We were good friends in high school , hung out even after high school And since touched base with each other periodically and caught up with each other’s lives. I am so glad that I recently purchased blinds and went to their company to see and visit with Diane (Dee) who helped me with getting just what I want with Buddy also helping, it was fun seeing and laughing with them both just a week before she passed. It seems so unreal. I’m so sad, as are many who loved her. She was truly a good , sincere, funny ..forever friend. I miss her. She loved Donny and Buddy a lot , along with her other family. She was loved by a lot of people and a good person all around. Cathi Crowdus-Oursler.

I am still in shock and can't believe my sister in law is gone. My brother is going to be lost for a long time, he has lost his best friend and the love of his life. Dee was such a great person and a great listener, she would never give advice but she would always be willing to sit and listen to everyone's problems. Love you Dee, you are already truly missed....
