To the friends and acquaintances of Linda Mower Goble, from Oral Lee Goble, Christopher Lee Goble and Carol Mower Heath
We sadly announce to you that Linda passed away on April 3, 2018.
Her passing resulted from contracting Cruetzfeldt-Jakob disease, a very rare, rapidly acting and incurable disease which fatally attacks the nervous system.
We will miss her greatly, forever! And Linda will certainly miss all of you.
Linda Mower Goble was born Dec. 7, 1946, in Galesburg Ill., the daughter of Jerome W. and Helen (Hatcher) Mower.
She attended Galesburg Public Schools, graduating from senior high school in 1964. Linda and her family owned and operated a popular retail beverage business which the family sold in 1978. Linda then joined Admiral Corporation, a major appliance division of Rockwell International, where she served as a new products quality specialist. While at Admiral, she met Oral Lee Goble, vice president of Admiral Appliance Operations, whom she married on Dec. 22, 1979.
Oral and Linda moved to Herrin, Ill., where Oral had been named president of Rockwell's Norge appliance division.
In 1983, the couple moved to Jackson, Mich., where son Christopher Lee was born on Oct. 11, 1983.
Four years later, in 1987, the family acquired a small air conditioning and refrigeration products distributor, doing business as Johnston Supply of Fort Lauderdale, and moved to Florida to manage the business.
During the 30 year period of ownership the Gobles developed their new business into a multi-million dollar enterprise at the very top of HVAC/R distributors in Metropolitan Southeast Florida.
Meanwhile, son Christopher Lee graduated magna cum laude from Florida state university and earned an MBA Degree from Florida Atlantic University. The family sold the business in 2016. Oral and Linda retired thereafter.
Linda is survived by her husband Oral, her son Christopher, sister, Carol Mower Heath (husband Rick) of Galesburg, Ill., and nephew Ryan Heath (wife Kim), and great nephew Colin Jerome Heath of Fort Worth, Texas.
Graveside service will be Thursday, April 12, at 1 p.m. at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Cemetery, 1500 South State Road 7, North Lauderdale, Fla.
Memorials in Linda's name may be made to a .
Oral Lee Goble was born and raised in Perry County in Derby and Rono. He graduated from Tell City high school in 1956 where he was a prominent athlete on the Marksmen's football and basketball teams.
