Jane Louise Henry GoodwinDec. 25, 1923 – June 29, 2015

Beloved daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and aunt passed away at age 91 in Ridgecrest, Calif.

Born to Paul and Leola Henry on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 1923 in Monte Vista, Colo. She spent her early years in Southern Colorado — Alamosa area — with brothers Junior, Dick, and sister, Priscilla.

On Jan 31, 1943, she married E.V. Goodwin of Cedaredge, Colo. They returned to live in San Diego, Calif. where son Gary was born in August 1943.

After the war, son Danny was born in California in May 1950. Construction projects took her from California to Colorado, Louisiana, Florida, up the east coast and overseas to Iran and Libya. She enjoyed playing golf and entertaining, traveling to Europe, the Mediterranean, and Hawaii, and having good times with her many friends. The travel also took her away from the family she loved the most.

In 1984, Jane and E.V. moved to Battlement Mesa, Colo. to spend their retirement playing golf. E.V. passed in 2005 and in 2008, after 24 years she returned to California where she lived independently until her passing. She will be placed beside our beloved E.V. at Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Grand Junction at 1 p.m. Friday, July 31.
