Lorraine Goode Eddy
Gainesville - Lorraine Goode Eddy was born on August 15, 1931, on the family dairy farm on Old Archer Road, to Loring L. and Cordelia Crown Goode, and lived her entire 89 years in Gainesville. Southwest 23rdTerrace now runs through what was then their cow pasture, and University Commons Apartments sits on the old homesite. She grew up helping with the dairy chores and was happy to do it.
She was a 1949 graduate of GHS and shortly thereafter married Vernon Eddy to whom she was married 67 years, until his death in 2017. She was also pre-deceased by her precious only sibling, Bernice "Bunny" Goode Scott the same year.
She was a stay at home homemaker and mother to their three children, daughter Susan Nalbandian of Gainesville, son Randy (DeAnn) Eddy of Kansas, and son Hal (Tammy) Eddy of Gainesville. She is also survived by 4 grandchildren who knew her as "Gigi", Zabel (Paul) Thur de Koos, Zac (Maura) Eddy, Laura (Patrick) Eddy Dixon, and Kyle Eddy, and 3 great-grandchildren, Paul and Alexis Thur de Koos and Sage Eddy.
They always had a vegetable garden and shared the produce and fruit with so many others. She could always be counted on to take food to sick friends and relatives, and nobody ever left her table hungry.
They took several trips to Hawaii, one to Ireland, a couple of cruises, and always enjoyed spending time at their cabin in the Smokies. Her final journey was to Heaven on March 28, 2021.
Burial will be private at a later date. Arrangements are in the care of MILAM FUNERAL AND CREMATION SERVICES 311 S. Main Street Gainesville, FL 32601 (352) 376-5361 www.milamfh.com

My condolences to you Susan, Randy and Hal. It's never easy to say goodbye to your mother. So many good memories over at Uncle Vernon and Aunt Lorraine's. You're right about feeding people. When I worked at my first bank job on Archer Road I can remember going over to their house for lunch and hanging out with them, I gladly accepted. As a girl there was always something fun and interesting to do around the property too. Later in life even got to spend the night at their cabin in the mountains and have dinner at Shadracks with them. Aunt "L" ..... she always had a big warm smile when she greeted you. Thinking of each of you. Love, Carrie

Mindy and I would like to express our sorrow at the loss of your sweet Momma. There is nothing that can be said to ease the feeling of loss or to make you feel any better. All we can and will do is to pray that the God of peace will give you just that in times where there is no other source.
Mindy and Melody
