Goldie's family has these words about their mom...Mom loved our Lord Jesus Christ and was an awesome prayer warrior. She also loved her family. She was the best mother, and we are so glad she was ours. We learned by her example to be hard workers. She never had much but always had just enough. Loving, caring, faithful and giving are only a few words to describe mom. Her gift in life was taking care of our Lord's people. She was a nurse's aide for over 30 years, and even after retiring, still helped anyone in need.
Goldie is survived by her children, Angela Byard, Teresa Taylor, David Byard, and John (Connie) Byard; grandchildren, Michael A. (Nikki) Bays and Sarah M. (Jon) Gonzalez; great-grandchildren, Matthew S. Bays, Hayden Bays, Harlee Bays, and Joshua Gonzalez; a great-great granddaughter, Olivia Bays; and a brother, Elmer McClain Jr. In addition to her husband, Dannie, she was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Richard Stevens; stepbrother, Terry Poorman; and grandson, Joshua J. Donnelly.
