Maria T. Goodall passed away on May 6, 2013 after a 10-month battle with cancer. Maria was born on Nov. 10, 1936 in Mittweida, Germany and was the second of seven children born to Aloes and Maria Altmann. At an early age, Maria excelled in athletic pursuits, especially swimming. In a time when people were not allowed to leave East Germany, Maria courageously left and began working in Munich, Germany with her older sister Luise. During this time, she met U.S. Army soldier Ricardo Paredes whom she married. After moving to the United States, Maria and Ricardo had three daughters, Eva, Lia and Christina. In 1966, Ricardo passed away. Maria met Ralph Hatfield, whom she married and had two additional daughters, Elaine and Karin. Ralph was in the Army which allowed the family to travel quite a bit but they decided to retire in Colorado after being stationed at Ft. Carson. After Ralph's retirement, Maria and Ralph moved to Penrose, Colorado and then divorced. Maria met and later married Nicolas Goodall, a longtime resident of Penrose. It was a match made in heaven. Nick died in 1999. Since that time, Maria has kept busy with her growing family as well as spending as much time as possible with her wonderful friends. Maria loved to visit Cripple Creek whenever she could as it was one of her guilty pleasures. Maria was able to travel back to Germany quite a bit in the last 10 years and is very close to her brothers and sisters and their families. Maria was preceded in death by her husband, Nicolas Goodall, her mother, father and one brother, Manfred. Maria is survived by five daughters: Eva Maria Paredes of Lakewood; Lia Paredes Howard (Dirk) of Kingman, Ariz.; Christina Sharon Paredes-Moyer (Mike)of Astoria, OR; Elaine Susan Hatfield Redwine(Mike) of Monument, and Karin Diana Hatfield Milisavljevich of Penrose and their families. Lia has four children: Jason Howard (Jamie), Reanne Howard Eichele (Derrick), Tiffany Hegg Richens (Asa), and Nicole Hegg Yost (Dominick). Christina has two children, Riccardo and Danielle Moyer. Elaine has four children, Cory and Dylan Redwine along with Ashley and Justin Hall; Karin has two children, Cody Hatfield and Kaitlynn Boldt. Maria is also survived by step-children, Suzi Adamson (Robert), Margaret Goodall (John), Mark Goodall and Danny Goodall (Lois); siblings Luise Wipplinger, Margot Koller (Eberhardt), Werner Altmann (Rosalinda), Heinz Altmann and Horst Altmann (Karin); and by 12 great grandchildren.
