Jan Dunson Goodson



Jan Dunson Goodson died peacefully on Monday, September 25th, 2017 in Enid, OK.

Born Febuary 24, 1939 in Alva, OK to Woodrow A. & Helen Kelly Dunson, Jan spent her childhood in Medicine Lodge, KS beginning school in a one-room school house, Dry Creek. She also attended High School in Medicine Lodge where she became a part of an exceptional group of people, the loyal and loving Class of 1957. She married her first love Dick DeLano & was blessed with a son, Michael Alan in 1956. Jan & Mike moved to Albuquerque years later where she attended university. There she met her 2nd husband, Major Clifford Goodson & became an army wife & stepmother to twin boys, Richard and Robert. She later was blessed with another son, Craig.

Jan worked as a receptionist in a dental office for over 15 years and was the bright, friendly face of the office. She loved socializing with people & many of the doctor's patients commented on how well she ran the front office & how friendly she was. She was a voracious reader & a great conversationalist, well versed in many different topics. She spent many years taking care of her friends & family & had a real love for the elderly.

Jan is survived by her four sons, Michael (Sara), Richard (Isabel), Robert (Tracy), Craig (Agnessa) and her sister, Linda.

In accordance with Jan's wishes, we will have a celebration of her life in the & spring of 2018 where we will scatter her ashes near her home town of Medicine Lodge, KS along the beautiful Gyp Hills Road that she loved. If you wish to attend the picnic in memory of Jan, please call Linda at 580-233-0693. Jan's wish was to have any donations go to the Medicine Lodge Public Library.
