Dorothy Lea Goodman Obituary
September 13, 1918 - April 21, 2016 Dorothy Lea Goodman, age 97, of Seal Beach, California, passed on April 21, 2016 at her home in Leisure World. Dorothy was born September 13, 1918 in New York. She proudly served during World War II as part of the Navy's Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES). Dorothy freely shared her love for the United States of America, and the freedoms we enjoy; with an abiding respect for the men and women of the Military who continue to serve this country. Dorothy loved history earning a history degree in 1968 at California State College Los Angeles. Her extensive research skills were helpful to her father in the preparation of speeches, and in tracing her family's genealogy. As an extremely well read individual she could easily quote different philosophers and authors, providing the right context to invoke thought. Dorothy enjoyed writing poetry, gardening, painting, and learning. She often described her father as a Renaissance man, but that description was more autobiographical. She is survived by her sister Sally Andelman, two nieces, three nephews, and numerous grand nieces and nephews. She is interred at Mount Sinai Memorial Park Hollywood Hills Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA.
