Obituary

Doris (Dot) Ann Goodwin, (nee Williams), passed into God's welcoming arms on December 7, 2016 at 80 years old. She died after a long battle with Alzheimer's. Doris, was nicknamed Dot by her grandfather because of her favorite polka-dotted dress as a child. She never wanted to take it off! She was born the 2nd daughter of 5 children to Ervin and Edna Williams in Walker County, Alabama in March 1936. Her family had lived and 'homesteaded' in Alabama since the 1840's. Her family moved to Climax, Colorado in the late 1940's. After a' trip of a life time' graduation journey with her sister Geneva from Climax to New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC in 1954, she graduated from Max Schott High School in Climax, CO and later attended Business school in Denver.

Her first job as a statistician was at the Glenn L. Martin Company, which became Martin Marietta Aerospace, where she met her future husband Wallace Goodwin marrying in 1958. Together with her sister Geneva and her husband Ted Purdy they all worked at Martin and raised their families in Littleton from the late 50's. Her brother David and his wife Kathy, still reside in Littleton with his family having moved from Leadville in the 70's.

She is survived by her 3 children, Brenda, Carla and Brett, and her grandson Josef. Her sister Barbara, living in Mississippi with her husband Larry remember Dot as a "great, woman with so much intelligence, always up on the current events and with opinions to share. She was funny too, to the core." A loving and extremely generous person, she only wanted the best for everyone. The friends who had the privilege to know her really felt very lucky. We, as her children, feel so blessed to have had her in our lives.
