Jacqueline “Jackie” Lee Goodwin
Jacqueline “Jackie” Lee Goodwin, age 84, of Branson, Missouri, passed away August 2, 2019. Born in Torrington, Wyoming, on November 27, 1934, Jackie was the daughter of Cecil Doyle and Margaret Lulu (Hans) Foster, who have preceded her in death. She was joined in marriage August 14, 1952, to Wesley “Wes” Goodwin, and they were married almost 66 years before his passing. She is also preceded in death by a daughter, Rebecca Ward.
Jackie dedicated her life to caring for her family along with knitting, sewing, quilting, baking, and tending to her tomato garden. There was rarely an idle moment as she poured her heart into her work of loving others first. She and Wes raised their family in California, and in 1995, they moved to the Ozarks for their retirement years, where they were active in the Harvest Evangelical Church. Jackie treasured time with family and traveled to California to make memories with her grandchildren.
She is survived by daughter, Wendy Whitney of Harrison, Arkansas; brother, Ronald Foster and his wife Janice Foster of California; five grandchildren: Ryan Ward of California, Rachel Goodwin of Colorado, Heather Glaser of California, Wesley Whitney of Texas, and Travis Whitney of Hawaii; and eleven great-grandchildren.
A celebration of life will be planned for a later time. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.cremationsoftheozarks.com.
