Cynthia "Cyndee" Goff Obituary

Cynthia (Cyndee) Lynn Prestridge Goff passed away Friday, February 16, 2024 at the age of 70.

Cyndee was the only girl born to Herman and Nita Faye Prestridge on May 2, 1953 in Hazlehurst, MS. Cyndee met a tall dashing young man, Johnny Goff and she was smitten. On March 25, 1977 they were married. After marriage, they moved to Jackson, MS where Stacey Leigh was born and later to Columbus, MS where Derrick Worth was born.

They moved back to Pascagoula in 1985 and became faithful members of the First Baptist Church of Pascagoula where she worked in the church daycare and nursery. She worked for a number of years for the Mississippi Department of Human Resources - Medicaid division. After an early retirement from DHR, Cyndee focused on raising her family.

Near their retirement, the Goff's moved to Gulfport, MS and found an extended family in the First Baptist Church of Gulfport. Since August 2019, Cyndee bravely battled cancer. While her quality of life changed and her mobility diminished, her faith in God never wavered. Although prayers may not be answered in the time or manner desired, we are confident that she is now completely healed and in the hands of our merciful God.

In addition to her parents, Cyndee is preceded in death by a brother, Mike Prestridge.

She is survived by her husband of over 46 years, John R Goff of Gulfport, MS; daughter, Stacey Killingsworth (Brock) of Mobile, AL; son, Derrick Goff (Courtney) of Ocean Springs, MS; brother, Joe Prestridge (Anna); sister-in-law, Anita Goff (Denise); brother-in-law, Alan Goff; nephew, Jeff Prestridge (Sarah); niece, Heather Prestridge (Kris); nephew, Ian Prestridge; great-nephew Jason Lee; great-niece Juliana Prestridge; brother-in-law David Peterson, and numerous other relatives and friends.
