We're so sorry for your loss. In the short four years we knew Goldie, we visited with her every time we were in Pershing. She was a sweet lady with a warm smile and a good heart. We'll imagine her in heaven with Sophie, watching Nascar races and rooting for Carl Edwards.

My deepest sympathies, I remember Goldie from my visits to Linn for summer vacations when I'd visit my aunt Elsie's house. She was a sweet lady. ..............

My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends. Goldie was a sweet lady. I remember Goldie cutting my hair in the 1960's when I was a little girl. I am the niece of Bernis & Elsie Malan.

Sorry for your lose. Your mother was a wonderful woman. I knew her from growing up around the Pershing area. My husband also knew her as he worked for your dad in the station as a high school student. We both thought the world of her.
