Lasting Memories

Gertrude Marie Goodale
Aug. 15, 1923-Feb. 24, 2023
Atherton, California

Gertrude Marie Goodale, age 99, passed away peacefully on February 24, 2023.

She was born August 15, 1923, in Astoria Oregon to John and Laura Helstrom.

Gertrude was a fine artist having studied formally in both Oregon and California.

In California, Gertrude met and married Thomas Goodale. They shared a life-long love of dogs—especially cairn terriers and were generous doners to many animal organizations.

Thomas preceded Gertrude in death in 1999.

Gertrude is survived by her niece, Karen Grogan, her nephew-in-law, James Edward Grogan, her great nephew John Edward Grogan, and her cairn terriers, Robbie and Daisy. Additionally, she will be greatly missed by others whose lives she touched deeply--especially Rema, Alec, Gloria, Alma, Amy, Maria, Addy, Mireya, and Jocelyn.

Gertrude and Thomas will rest in Ocean View Cemetery—in her beloved Astoria Oregon.
