Lois M. Godbold, 78, died Monday, Nov. 16, 2015, in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
Born Jan. 26, 1937, in Concord, New Hampshire, to George and Annabelle Carroll, Lois graduated from St. John's High School in Concord. She attended Sacred Heart School of Nursing in Manchester, New Hampshire, and earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Central Florida. Lois served in the United States Air Force, attaining the rank of Captain before her Honorable Discharge in 1970. She worked as a nurse for years before becoming a teacher at Orlando Tech, where she taught until her retirement. 
After marrying Wayne Godbold, Lois and Wayne made their home in Winter Garden, Florida. Although Lois and Wayne never had children of their own, they parented many children through the years. Like her mother, Lois never tired of watching the ocean from her condo in New Smyrna Beach. She lovingly adopted several cats and is now reunited in heaven with Kat, Sam and Charlie.
Lois is survived by her siblings, George, Phyllis, James and Richard; her niece, Tenley; her nephews, James, David and Zachary; and by her loving and caring friends on North Boyd Street.
A viewing will be held at the Woodlawn Memorial Park & Funeral Home in Gotha, Florida, at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22, followed by the funeral service at 2:30 p.m. The family suggests that donations be made to a charity in lieu of flowers. Condolences may be offered at
