GOODMAN, Patricia Apr 22, 1947 – May 29, 2021

Patricia Goodman passed on Saturday, May 29, 2021. She was born to Vintris and Melissa L. Clark from Clarksville, AR on April 22, 1947. She attended Arkansas Tech University where she was swept off her feet by a tall, redheaded guy, Joe R. Goodman that would later become her husband of 54 years.
After many moves through a few states, Pat and Joe settled their family in Corsicana, TX in 1984. Previously a stay-at-home mom, Pat began working at Fannin Elementary as a paraprofessional and later becoming the school secretary and "chief tooth puller" for Fannin for the next twenty years. Many a student would knock on her door over the summer because only Mrs. Goodman was allowed to pull their teeth. Pat loved kids of all ages, but her grandchildren had special places of her heart.
Pat loved to go fishing, was an avid book reader, loved playing games with the family and cooking for everyone. She enjoyed her Bunco group so much and they were very special ladies in her life. But her favorite thing besides helping kids and baking after school cookies for her grandchildren was going to garage sales and church sales with her best friends to sell on eBay. This enabled her to make many donations to support the First Methodist Youth Group with their mission trips and other activities. She even promised to go back the to Plano Stroke Institute one day to teach the nurses that were so kind to her after her stroke to crochet too.
Pat is survived by her husband Joe, her three children Missy Grantham of Corsicana, Mandy Newgard of Flagstaff, AZ, and Chris Goodman of McGregor, TX, their spouses Ricky Grantham, Greg Newgard, and Olivia Goodman, her grandchildren Andy Grantham, Brady Grantham, Cameron Newgard, Austin Newgard, Addy Goodman, and Mia Goodman.
The family is planning to have a come and go reception from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, June 6, 2021 at First United Methodist Church of Corsicana to share in our memories of her. We look forward to seeing each of you.
In lieu of flowers Pat's family is requesting donations to the Corsicana Animal Shelter, to the First Methodist Church Preschool or Youth Group, to your favorite charity in her name or even by simply donating blood for the American Red Cross.
