Goldie enjoyed bowling and flower gardening. She loved her family and spending time with them at family gatherings. She and dad enjoyed many hours of traveling logging roads and finding little wild blackberry patches and taking the family to pick the berries with them. Each holiday throughout the year we enjoyed a berry pie which we all had contributed to with our hilarious berry picking trips.
Goldie is survived by her daughters, Lorrie (Tom) Lane of Aberdeen, Vicki (Casey) Winkel of Olympia, Susan Johnson and her fiancé Tom Quinlan of Gig Harbor; brothers, Burnette and George Mullins of Aberdeen, Carlis Mullins of Menlo and Roger Mullins of Quinault; five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
