Goldie R. Jobe
January 28, 1925 ‒ October 18, 2015
Goldie R. Jobe, age 90 of Marengo passed away Sunday, October 18, 2015 at Riverside Hospital.
She was born on January 28, 1925 in Trammel, Virginia the youngest child born to the late William and Nicey (Moore) Amburgey. In the WAVES, Goldie served two years in the US Navy at the close of WW II. Most proud of the fact that she was the only member of her family to attend college, she earned a business degree from Beckley College.
She married Julian Jobe in 1947; they shared 18 wonderful years before his unexpected passing in 1965. A widow for 50 years she could find no equal to her Julian.
Goldie worked 32 ½ years as the Marengo School secretary for the Highland School District, retiring in 1995. Over the years it was known that students didn’t mind getting into trouble because the office visit allowed them to visit with Goldie.
She was a member of VFW 8054 Auxiliary, Flamingo Twig, and New Covenant Fellowship Church in Marion. Goldie also volunteered with the Red Cross and favored eating at the Farmstead Inn. She enjoyed attending yard sales, gardening, and playing euchre with the Highland ladies retirees.
A collector of memories, she was always willing to share them. Considered thrifty, she wanted nothing for herself and was willing to help anyone in need. Strong willed and independent, she was dedicated to the needs of her family and will be remembered for her love of each one, especially her grandchildren.
