Memory of Ariel Eileen Billings Goodridge
9, 1921 - November 2, 2001
aunt Ariel Goodridge lost her battle with cancer last month. She
was diagnosed in January, one month before her 80th birthday.
Despite the total amputation of her left leg, the cancer spread,
and she died on November 2nd. She was awake and aware until the
day before she died. I was privileged to spend the last week of
her life with her and my father, and we had a wonderful time until
there can be a "best way" to die, I would choose to do it like
she did. A few weeks before the end, my whole family went see
her in northern Michigan. Despite a variety of lifestyles and
geographic locations, we all made it for one final bon voyage.
We spent a weekend talking, laughing, sharing memories, and finally,
only child died at birth, but she was aunt and "surrogate mom"
to many. She was behind the scenes at my wedding, and many other
family events, cooking, creating, and just generally helping out--always
there when we needed her. I am personally grateful for the hours
she spent poring over old pictures and helping me piece the family
tree together. She will be missed by all. Link to Ariel's
