"Miss Stell"
Estelle Goodwin passed away peacefully Saturday, May 24, 2008, with her family by her side. "Miss Stell" was a 16-year resident of Alamogordo along with her husband, Al.
Estelle was born in Spartanburg, S.C., Feb. 10, 1944, to Thomas and Mary Latta. She was married to Al Goodwin on July 4, 1974, in El Cajon, Calif., and has one child she nicknamed JoJo. As a military family, they lived in El Cajon, Calif.; Tucson, Ariz.; Wahiawa, Hawaii; and Hesperia, Calif. Estelle had several small employments over the years, with two of the lengthiest ones being for U.S. Customs as well as the U.S. Census. She preferred being a homemaker. Some of her favorite hobbies were photography, reading, crocheting and occasionally golf. One of her favorite charities was the ASPCA, and she was a loving pet owner of several dogs and cats over the years.
She is survived by her husband, Al; her daughter Johanna and her husband Scott; her granddaughter Jessica; her grandson Emerson, of Hesperia, Calif.; her sister Ellie and her husband Russell Parker, of Tijeras; her brother John and his wife Melodee Latta, of Norco, Calif.; her niece Michele and her husband Kris Shaw, of Corona, Calif.; her great-nieces Kylie and Cassidy Shaw, of Corona; and her very close friend Pat McGowan, of Alamogordo.
A memorial gathering will be held at Pat McGowan's house Saturday, May 31, 2008, beginning at 4 p.m. For more information, please call Pat at 430-1219.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Alamogordo Animal Shelter at 2910 N. Florida Ave. in Alamogordo, or the ASPCA in Estelle's name. She will be extremely missed by all who were a part of her life, especially the special friends she had at Denny's here in Alamogordo.
