EAST CARBON/TURNQUIST, ELMO-Lahoma Alice Goodin, 75, returned to her Heavenly Father March 14, 2007 after a brief illness at Castleview Hospital. She was born July 10, 1931, in Texhoma Okla., to Alice Noble and John Texhoma Weatherly. She married Alton "Bud" Loy Goodin July 28, 1949, in Texhoma, Okla.
Alice Goodin was a loving wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. She served on this earth in all she did with honor. Alice was a nurse from the "Old School" ways, and was well known for her wonderful care of patients. She loved the mountains and loved road trips. She never minded detour signs along the way that would take her along a winding mountain pass.
Alice and Bud were seen every Tuesday night, for their date, at the Star Grill enjoying each other, family, and music. She lived in Moab and worked at Allen Memorial Hospital, she also worked for several years at Castleview Hospital in Price, Utah. Alice was a member of the LDS church. We will miss our sweet mother and friend; her quiet strength and tender ways.
Alice is survived by her husband Bud Goodin, her children: Alton "Buddy", (Kathleen) Goodin, of Wellington, Utah, Carolyn (Ken) Kay, of Castle Dale, Utah, Detra (Peter) Borner, of Montrose, Colo.; grandchildren: Boyd McFarland, Desiree Goodin, Nataleen Einerson, Richard Goodin, Stephen Goodin, Lisa Parberry, Jennica LeBaron; eight beautiful great-grandchildren; one brother Jimmy Weatherly El Paso Texas, and one sister Sue Kaddatz of Dallas, Texas.
Services will be held Tues., March 20, 2007 at 11 a.m. at the East Carbon LDS church. Interment will follow the services at Castle Dale City Cemetery.
We want to thank the nurses and staff at Castleview Hospital, who took such good care of Alice while in the hospital. They went above and beyond for their fellow nurse.
