Georgia Diane Godbey Robertson was released from her earthly form on April 25, 2024.

Diane was born May 19, 1952 in Reeds, NC and grew up in Welcome, NC. The daughter of John Frank Godbey and Lucille Lampley, she had 2 older brothers; Jimmy Godbey and Ronnie Godbey (Peggy), and a younger sister; Sherri Hayes (James).

On Jan. 9, 1971 Diane went on a blind date where she met her forever sweetheart, Tommy Robertson. Nine months later they were married. On March 18, 1972 Diane and Tommy came to know the Lord at Advance United Methodist Church side by side. Diane gave the precious gift of life to Angela Terpenning in 1974 and to Michael Robertson in 1977. Diane loved her family more than anything in this world.

Through the years she worked in many professions; the most difficult was being a minister’s wife. The most fulfilling, and her true calling was as a Registered Nurse. She received her Nursing Degree from Forsyth Tech in 1992. As the years passed, she eventually settled into her favorite role of them all, Mamaw. Her four grandchildren, Alexander Abbott (Natasha Cross), Jacob Terpenning, Zackary Robertson and Emma Robertson were her pride and joy. She adored each of them in their own special way.

Diane, Sis, Sweetheart, Mama, Mamaw; you were loved beyond measure, and you are missed every single day.

The family will receive friends at Davidson Funeral Home in Lexington on May 5 from 5-7 p.m. A celebration of life service will be held at 6 p.m. on May 19 at Wella Farm, 368 Weldon Smith Road, Lexington, NC.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Randolph Hospice House at 446 Vision Drive, Asheboro or easily to Saint Jude’s Childrens Hospital at or Saint Joseph’s Indian School at
