In Memory of Virginia Godbout
Mrs. Virginia “Ginny” Godbout (née Huset) died peacefully, at home, on September 27th, 2021 in Eleva, WI at the age of 76.
She was born on December 24th, 1944 in Barron, WI to Ole and Lucille (Czerwonka) Huset.
She graduated from Barron High School in 1961. She married David Godbout, Sr. in 1982, at New Scandinavia Lutheran Church in the Town of Maple Grove, rural Dallas. David and Ginny shared many wonderful years together, trail riding on horseback, two-stepping on the dance floor and taking care of animals on their hobby farm. This year, they had just celebrated their 39th anniversary, two days before Ginny’s passing. Ginny was an avid animal lover. She grew up raising, training, and riding horses. She was an accomplished horse trainer, who was known for finishing out horses so well that they were mellow and dependable. She also loved her dogs and had many over the years, but there was a special place in her heart for her German Shepherds—especially Heidi and Sasha. She had a kind, gentle way about her and animals felt safe in her presence. Ginny was a devoted mother to her step-children and a loving grandmother to her grandchildren. She loved to spend time in the kitchen, cooking and baking, and showing each child how to bake cookies. Her loving spirit, generosity and compassionate heart were the most cherished attributes of this wonderful woman. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends, and we know that she is at peace, and waiting for our later reunion in heaven.
Ginny, or Cricket as she was known to her horse club friends, is survived by her husband: David Godbout, Sr., her daughters: Monique (Louis) Olson of Edgar, WI and Bridgette Kahl of Prairie Farm, WI, her son: David (Trish) Godbout, Jr. of Hudson, WI, her sister: Beverly Tireman of Weyerhaeuser, WI, her nieces: Rochelle (Jim) Dusza of Weyerhaeuser, WI and Becky Tireman of Rice Lake, WI, her grandchildren: Jolie, Beau, Cole and Belle Godbout of Hudson, WI, and Jada and Kylie Kahl of Prairie Farm, WI and her great nephews: Jesse and Jeremiah Slack of Cameron, WI. She was preceded in death by her parents: Ole and Lucille Huset of Dallas, WI and brother: James Huset of Barron, WI.
