On the wings of an angel, EUNICE DELOIS TALLEY GODETTE was escorted to her heavenly father on Sunday, February 4, 2018 in Hampton, VA. She was born on January 7, 1938 in Palmer Springs, VA to the late James G. Talley and Albertha Wright Talley. Her husband, Franklin D. R. Godette and five (5) siblings, Geraldine T. Funn, Arnold N. Talley, William H. Talley, Ralph W. Talley, and Virginia A. Howell preceded her in death. At an early age, she was baptized and joined Ascension Episcopal Church, Palmer Springs, VA and later attended St. Cyprian's Episcopal Church in Hampton, VA.

In 1959, she married Franklin D. R. Godette and to this union four children were born. A son, Shaughnessy M. Godette preceded her in death.

Eunice attended St Paul’s College in Lawrenceville, VA and graduated from Durham Business College in Durham, NC. Until her retirement in 1999, she worked at Duke Marine Laboratory in Beaufort, NC. After retiring, she worked briefly for Fox Hill Private School as a teacher’s aide and in 2005 she received the Teacher’s Aide of the Year Award.

Eunice was a virtuous woman. She was a quiet, loving, caring, and sharing person who adored her family. Her children were her pride and joy. She taught her children that with hard work and determination anything is possible. Humility, empathy and generosity were qualities that were instilled in them. She emphasized the importance of being kind to others and living a Godly life.

Eunice leaves to cherish her memory three loving children, Flondezi (Diane) Godette of Saline, MI, Arturo Godette of West Palm Beach, FL, and Felicia Godette of Hampton, VA; two loving grandchildren, Autumn and Marcus Godette of Saline, MI; a sister, Rebecca Howard of Hampton, VA, a devoted brother, Calvin Talley of Washington, DC; a sister-in-law, Verdelle Newby (Bernard) of Havelock, NC, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
