Wilma "Billie" Goodew

d. January 27, 2013

Wilma "Billie" Goodew was called home to her heavenly Father on Sunday, January 27, 2013. Filled with fun, hugs and a great love for people, Billie had a smile that could light up a room and formed friendships everywhere she went. She was born on January 10, 1936 to Al and Lydia Koster in Sutherland, Iowa. Billie had 9 brothers and sisters that loved her very much. Billie and Ray Goodew were united in marriage on March 5, 1954. As a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, she loved spending time with her family and treasured having a house full of family and friends. She was referred to as "Grandma Cookie" due to a freezer full of her famous chocolate chip cookies. She was deeply dedicated to God and she served Grace Lutheran Church in a multitude of ways including Sunday School Coordinator and a home bound communion caregiver. Billie was proceeded in death by her parents, in-laws, and an infant sister. She is survived by her husband of nearly 59 years, Ray, and her children, Dan and Debbie Goodew, Jeannie Goodew and Todd Johnson, Bob Goodew, Scott and Laurie Goodew, Sandy and Tony Titus. She is also survived by her grandchildren (and their families), Mikey, Billie Jo, Phillip, Deana, Jacob, Katie, Danyel, Chris, Ashley, Alyssa, Tiffany, Jenny, and Aimee and great grandchildren Ray, Robby, William, Danika, Sam, Calvin, Hunter, Dominic, Makayla, MaKenzee, and Theodore.
