Goldie Lewis

Goldie B. Lewis, 87, of Morgantown, gained her heavenly wings and entered the gates of heaven on Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022, at Mon Health Medical Center.

She was born on Aug. 15, 1934, the daughter of the late Ernest Grant and Goldie (Goodwin) Wolfe.

In addition to her parents, Goldie has been reunited with the love of her life, Dave; her sons, David W. Lewis Jr. and John B. Lewis; and brothers, Alfred, Howard, Frank, Fred and Raymond. Goldie was a loving mother, sister, grandmother and a loyal friend to all of those lucky enough to have known her.

Goldie retired from Morgan Shirt Factory after working in the factory for 35 years. She lovingly cared for her children and grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with all of them. She even helped others by babysitting so their parents could work. After retirement, she and her late husband Dave founded “Dave’s Snack Shack” which was located on the Deckers Creek rail-trail between Morgantown and Masontown. They were always sitting on the porch waiting for someone to stop by for a quick drink, an ice cream or just to chat for a bit.

Goldie is survived by her sister, Carolyn Chidester of Reedsville; brother, Glenn (Linda) Wolfe, of Masontown; her five children and their spouses, Donna (Carl) Mayfield, of Springfield, Wanda (James) Martin, of Morgantown, Ernie (Beth) Lewis, of Fairmont, Debbie (Randy) Wilson, of Morgantown, and Cathy (Ray) Hurt, of Morgantown; and many precious grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, whom she loved dearly. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

Friends and family will be received at Nicholson Chapel Church, 1346 Summers School Road, Morgantown, from 2-6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 15. Visitation will continue from 10 a.m. until the time of the funeral service at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 16, with Tess Hovatter officiating. Interment will follow at Nicholson Chapel Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Nicholson Chapel, 1346 Summer School Road, Morgantown, WV 26508, or SteppingStones located at 400 Mylan Park Lane, Morgantown, WV 26501.
