Georgie Goodvin

September 4, 1920 — January 8, 2021

Georgia Verlee Goodvin was born September 4, 1920 to George C. and Emma (Perks) Olson at Carbon, Iowa. She passed away January 8, 2021 at Corning Specialty Care in Corning, Iowa following a long and well-lived life.

Georgie (as everyone called her) lived her entire life in the Carbon Area. She was a coal miner’s daughter, growing up in a loving and supportive family, surrounded by several aunts and numerous cousins. Georgie went to school in Carbon and then worked there as a teacher’s aide. On February 28, 1940 she was united in marriage to Wayne Arnold Goodvin in Maryville, Missouri. To this union, two children were born, Max and Carolyn. Georgie and Wayne were able to spend 79 wonderful years together.

Georgie was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She lived a life that set an excellent example for the rest of the family. She will long be remembered for her sharp wit and great sense of humor, never missing the opportunity to surprise you with her comments. She enjoyed quilting, her church, and most of all, times with family. Her focus was always on the important things, i.e., the health and happiness of all. Georgie and Wayne always had time for a cup of coffee regardless of who or when someone stopped in.

Georgie was preceded in death by her husband, Wayne, her sister Wilda (Oli) Bell, and brother, Ralph.

She is survived by daughter Carolyn Boswell and husband Mark of Corning; their sons Jason and wife Wendi of Corning and Justin and his wife Jessica of Orient; son Max Goodvin and wife Dorothy of Council Bluffs, and their daughters Heidi Reelfs and husband Scott of Council Bluffs and Emily Villanueva Lynch of Dripping Springs, Texas, and nine great grandchildren who had the gift of knowing their Great Grandma Georgie.
