Mrs. Goodell Dies Saturday Following Long Illness
Mrs. C. G. Goodell passed away at her home at 2 p.m. Saturday after having been in poor health for the past several years.
A fall she received in November rendered her helpless since that time.
Mrs. Goodell, the oldest child of six children of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Robins, was born near Toronto, Canada, May 22, 1856, and at the age of five moved with her parents to Lockport, New York, where they resided until coming to Iowa in 1879, where they settled on what is known as the Dunn farm northeast of Grundy Center.
In 1883 she was united in marriage to C. G. Goodell of Cedar Rapids, who passed away twelve years ago. After their marriage they located at Kimball, So. Dak., for four years, after which time they came back to Grundy Center where they spent the remainder of their lives, with the exception of three years at Klemme and four years in Cedar Rapids.
Seven children were born to them, Frank, Ethel, Ruie, Alma, Flora, Almon and Burt. Three of the daughters died in infancy. Frank and Almon (known as Dick) passed away after reaching manhood.
Mrs. Goodell is survived by her mother, Mrs. Mary Ann Robins, 96 years of age, a daughter Ruie and son Burt, both of this place; also a sister, Mrs. M. G. Canfield and five brothers, Thomas, George, Warren and Lewis, all of Grundy Center, and Joe Robins of Brandon, Iowa. There are four grandchildren, Billy and Bobby Dickinson and Duane and Barbara Ann Goodell.
Mrs. Goodell had been an invalid for several years, which kept her closely to home, but prior to this was a kind friend, a thoughtful neighbor and a loving mother.
Funeral services were held at the home at 2:30 Monday. The services were in charge of Rev. J. B. Bird, pastor of the Methodist church. Burial was by the side of the husband in the Grundy Center cemetery.
Pallbearers were the nephews, George and Lew Canfield, Fred and Art Robins, Otto Schwenn and a cousin, Merle Eno of Marshalltown.
Relatives from out-of-town were Mr. and Mrs. Burt Eno and sons Guy and Merle of Marshalltown, Joe Robins and son Raymond of Brandon and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Robins and son of Reinbeck.
