Obituary for Patricia Godbout (Johnson)

Patricia (Johnson) Godbout passed away on Thursday, May 5, 2022 at Saint Francis Hospital. Pat was very grateful for the care she received there over the years, especially from Dr. Galley and Dr. Kennedy. Pat was born in Hartford and grew up surrounded by her family. Many of her cousins lived right upstairs while others were close by in West Hartford. Some things that we loved about Pat were her generosity, hospitality, compassion, and deep empathy for others. Her memory was impeccable and her storytelling skills were second to none. Some things that Pat loved were knitting, cooking, eating, and conversing, not necessarily in that order. She adored her family, which included her brothers, Bob (Ann), Bill (Joan), Jim (Sandy), John (Andrea) and her sister, Maureen (Rick) as well as her sisters in law, Anne (Rob), Betty Jane (John), and Julie (Peter) and brother in law Art (Liz). Her lifelong best friend, Carolyn Brovero, became her cousin when Pat married the love of her life, Greg. Patty and Greg had over fifty wonderful years together.
She is survived by their children Greg (Terry), Eileen (Michael), Geoff (Korie), and Dana (Melanie), their grandchildren Maggie (Chris), Devin, Kate, Jack, Tom, Ben, and James, and their great grandchildren Vivian and Ryan, as well as many beloved cousins, nieces, and nephews. Pat loved the various places where she and Greg lived and the people they met there, starting in Germany and ending in West Hartford. While living in Willington, she served as the Town Clerk, for almost 20 years. Through her role as Town Clerk, she was able to meet and serve many wonderful citizens of the town.
