Obituary Condolences

Patricia "Diddy" GOLDBERG Diddy Goldberg, age 87, passed away peacefully at home on April 9th, 2011, in Bellevue, Washington. She was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma on March 7th, 1924. Her loving parents were Harry N. Pollock and Helen (Ginsburg) Pollack of Talihina, Oklahoma. Diddy attended Stephen's College followed by the University of Texas, where she met her husband Jay Goldberg at a USO dance that was attended by young women from the AEPhi Sorority. Jay and Diddy were married in 1943. After Jay returned from the European front of World War II, the married couple returned to Jay's former home, Aberdeen, Washington. Everyone in the harbor remembers with fondness the Goldberg Furniture Store, which serviced the community from 1926 to 2001. Her beloved Jay passed away in 1997. Diddy loved to entertain with Jay at their home in Aberdeen. She was an excellent cook and a consummate shopper, especially of home décor and fashion - she loved to dress well. Diddy and Jay travelled extensively throughout the world, with her favorite destination being the Orient. Diddy also loved engaging in conversation, equipped with a keen dry wit and unwavering sense of social justice. A person of strong convictions, she knew how to convey them clearly. Diddy will be remembered for her love of community and tenacious spirit. Her humor, caring heart and infectious smile will be truly missed. Diddy is survived by her brother, Newton Pollock; son, Larry Goldberg; daughter, Diane Cohen; six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Special thanks to all her loving friends, Dr. Rice and her staff, all the employees at Pacific Regent, all the Careforce staff and Diddy's personal caregivers. A grave side service will be held at the Beth Hatfilo Cemetery, Masonic Memorial Park at 455 North Street, Tumwater Washington 98501 at 11:00AM on Wednesday, April 13, 2011.
