The family would like to thank those people who were her special friends – Don Garvich, Vernon, Kathleen and Billy Braden, Jeff Brumlow, Scott Meyers and Peter Reich.
The family would also like to extend special thanks to Dr. Robert Chadband for his help and support for many years. His consultations with us were comforting and the information he provided was of great value. He not only took care of her physical needs but he and Mrs. Chadband were her neighbors and friends.
Goldie leaves this earth to join friends and family and forever be “side by side” with them in heaven.
