Mrs Goans had been ailing for but a month, and with the aid of her little daughter attended to her household duties up to the time of her death.  On Thursday afternoon she laid down on the sofa to take a rest, and a little later was found asleep—from which she never awakened. She was a good Christian, a loving wife, kind mother…” (LCT: 3-25-1898)  (Edit: The announcement of the birth of a daughter on Sept 7, 1895 to Mr and Mrs C Goans of Larene appeared in the LCT paper of 9-20-1895.  The Larene Precinct 1910 census shows a portion of the Charles Goans family, the children residing with him being: William, John, Rebecca, Maud and Anna.)

Goldman, Noble Jeffries:  (1914-2004); “Memorial service for Noble Jeffries Goldman, 89, is scheduled at 3 p.m. Friday, June 18, at the Davenport United Methodist Church. Mr Goldman died June 8 after a long battle with cancer.  Born July 13, 1914, in Louisville, KY, he went to work at an early age with his only brother to support their mother. They lived in southern Indiana and sometimes worked in Kentucky, crossing the Ohio River in a rowboat. When the CCC camps opened in the 1930s, he boarded a train in Louisville and headed west, finding himself in Pomeroy, WA, where he built erosion control dams on wheat ranches. Of the $30 he was paid each month, he kept $5 and sent the balance home to his family.  After his marriage to Helen Cyrus in Pomeroy, the couple moved to Davenport, where their son, Gene, was born. When the CCC camp closed, they stayed and he worked at various jobs, including for the state Dept of Transportation, retiring in 1976 after 15 years.  Two years after the 1975 death of his wife, he married Ida May Webber and inherited a large extended family. They traveled in their motor home to Indiana to visit family, to Arizona several times and one summer to Alaska. He built model antique cars and trucks and won several blue ribbons at the county fair. He also helped a friend build a grandfather’s clock. His hobbies included fishing, horseshoes, rock hounding, stone polishing and gem faceting, picking huckleberries, camping and woodworking. He remodeled two houses, built a boat and his own pool table. He also enjoyed cribbage and other card games, dancing and fellowship with friends. He loved animals, especially his Chihuahua dogs. Of the stray cats he adopted, his favorite was ‘Charlie’ with whom he had many conversations.  He belonged to the National Rifle Assn, Retired Public Employees Council and the Davenport-Edwall United Methodist Church. He leaves his wife, Ida May; a son, Gene (and Marcia); five grandchildren, Daniel, Rebecca, Gabriel, Bethany, Dana (and Garnet); two great grandchildren, Alice and Asher; and many step children, step grandchildren and step great grandchildren.” (Davenport Times: 6-17-2004)
