Goldie Mae Pratt, 91, Pleasant Valley, entered into heaven Sunday, May 5, 2019, at Pleasant Valley Manor Care Center, where she resided for the past five years.

Goldie was born June 22, 1927, in Neosho, the daughter of Alvis and Letha (Sligar) Davis. She was united in marriage to James Virgil Pratt of Stark City, Missouri, July 11, 1951. Jim preceded her in death on Jan. 31, 1989.

Goldie was a domestic engineer and worked outside the home for a short time. After their marriage, Jim and Goldie lived in Rayville and moved to Richmond in 1978. She enjoyed spending time with her granddaughters, Teresa Ann and Linda Sue, never using just their first names. Other hobbies included gardening, fishing and picking strawberries and blueberries with her sister.

Survivors include: two granddaughters: Teresa (Thomas) Coffman and Linda (Lyle) McNeal both of Kansas City; four great-grandchildren, Travis Hill, Alyssa McNeal, Austin McNeal and Samantha Coffman; and Teresa and Linda’s paternal grandmother, Lorraine May Ohl of Pleasant Valley.

Goldie was preceded in death by her parents; a daughter, and son-in-law, Betty and Walter (Butch) Ohl; her brother, Jimmy; and a sister, Aleene.

The family suggests memorial contributions to Richmond VFW Post 4398. They can be left at or mailed to Thurman Funeral Home, 507 E. Main St. - P.O. Box 190, Richmond, MO 64085.

Visitation will be from 1 to 2 p.m., Friday, May 10, 2019, at Thurman Funeral Home in Richmond, followed by graveside services at 2 p.m. at Richmond Memory Gardens.
