She was born November 25, 1929 in East riverdale, MD, the daughter of the late Joseph Adelard “Pat” Godbout and Helen Margaret Post.

She had a wonderful sense of humor and was known to go out of her way to get a laugh out of those around her. She had a deep love for her family, the beach, and anything chocolate. Surviving are her four children: Melanie Margaret Mc Alexander Driscoll and her husband Tad of Carroll Valley, Pennsylvania and their sons Paul Andrew Driscoll and Jeremy Alexander Driscoll, Thomas Mc Alexander of Oxnard, California, Lou Mc Alexander and his wife Teresa of Frederick, Maryland, Elizabeth Irene Mc Alexander of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; grandchildren: Sarah Alvarez, Amy Pastick, Joshua Koch, and great grandchildren, Isabella, Lilliana, Liam, Christian and Logan. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas Henry McAlexander; brother Joseph Warren Godbout; paternal Grandparents: William Matthew Adelard Godbout and Herminie Bessette and maternal Grandparents: George Warren “Papa” Post and Henrietta “Gaga” Weber.
