Mrs. Alice Godard Weber, age 89, of Milner passed quietly from us early Sunday morning, Aug. 19, 2012, at her home with her son Jim and his wife Sally.She was born in Cleveland, Ohio to her parents, the late Mr. William Wallace Godard and the late Mrs. Pauline Elizabeth Willis Godard. They were transplants to that northern city, though born and raised in Lamar County. After a life spent as a professional writer and creative director for her own ad agency and others, she received her doctorate in American literature at age 74 from Georgia State University. She bought and restored one of Lamar’s most deserving houses, the old ‘Dogtrot House’ on Liberty Hill Road in Milner. This 1825 or earlier structure was architecturally significant and might otherwise have been lost without Alice’s restoration.Survivors include five children, Michael (and Kate) Weber, David (and Sharon) Weber, Katherine Weber, Jim (and Sally) Weber and Loretta Weber; two sisters, Sarah Godard Stang of Vermont and Jane Godard Clifford of North Carolina. Eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren also survive.Funeral services for Mrs. Alice Weber will be conducted Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012 at 1 p.m. in the Milner United Methodist Church. Interment will follow in Milner Baptist Cemetery, where she will lie next to her parents.Those who wish may view the memorial page and sign the guestbook online at williamsfh.net.Williams Funeral Home of Barnesville is in charge of arrangements, 770-358-1678.
