Helen (Sadie) Marie Goe passed away on February 1, 2020, in the presence of her oldest son, Dick. She was the oldest child born of eight, to Robert and Nettie Walkin, in Hope, North Dakota on June 2, 1930. Helen’s younger life was spent helping raise four of her siblings, in hard times. Her Grandmother Sara Wood taught her how to sew. Helen at 13 and her youngest sister, Alice, became foster children of Dr. Thomas and Lucille Patterson.

She always told of her great experiences being the driver for her foster father. She was allowed to drive at the age of 13. She was also a foster child of Mrs. Ritter as she graduated high school in Lisbon, North Dakota in 1948 and had the chance to drive Mrs. Patterson to Hood River, Oregon. Mrs. Patterson’s sister, Grace, was married to Frank Arnold. The Arnold’s offered Helen to live with them and start a new life in Hood River. Four days later she met the love of her life, Donald (Dick) Goe, four months later they were married. This loving couple, married over 65 years, and were blessed with four children, Richard (Susan), Thomas, Lynn (Rick) Sherrell, and Gary (Kathy).

Helen enjoyed raising her family in a warm and loving environment. She was a member of the Odell Methodist Church. Her children used to get a special button for attending church each Sunday every year. In 1957, on her birthday as the family was getting ready for church, the family house burnt to the ground. The family of Roy and Dorothy Kirby and daughter MaryAnne offered the family to live with them until they were able to find a new home. They eventually moved to the Pine Grove area on a twenty-acre orchard. She was eager to become part of the Pine Grove clan.

Everyone welcomed the family with open arms! She joined Rebecca Lodge, Aloha Club, played Bridge, she volunteered at Providence Hospital. She loved giving baby showers and wedding showers for all of her family and friends. Dick and Sadie enjoyed hosting the Goe Family Reunions. They enjoyed all types of dancing, taking long walks (daily), playing cards, reading, crossword puzzles, stray cats and dogs. They loved to go camping at Toll Bridge Park and Lost Lake in their camper. They spent 20 years at the beach house they owned in Lincoln City, Oregon.

Sadie’s husband, Dick, passed away in 2014, she moved to Down Manor in 2017 and then to Brookside Manor. She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, two brothers, Robert (Bob) and John, and daughter-in-law, Anne. She is survived by two brothers, Henry and Tom and three sisters, Marge Mooney, Mary (Dale) Blumenthal and Alice (Carl) Dehner. Helen was blessed with nine grandchildren Audi (Ryan) Samsel, Trista (Ryan) Beam, Cassy (Heath) Stintzi, Dustin (Tara) Goe, Kimberly (Mike) Goe, Kary (Sara) Sherrell, Donnie Goe, Ryan (Brittany) Goe, Colby Goe; twelve great-grandchildren Andrew Samsel, Hunter Samsel, Trevon Beam, Tyrone Stintzi, Toby Stintzi, Rylyn Beam, Kainoa Alayon, Nash Samsel, Alexander Goe, Brodie Goe-Alayon, Adelynn Goe, Kinsley Goe, whom she loved with all of her heart and soul.

We were first introduced to Helen and Dick when we moved to Hood River in 1980. Their ability to make us feel welcome and accepted will always hold a special place in our hearts. They were truly a beautiful couple.

Dick, Tom, Lynn and Gary, I'm so sorry to learn of your mother's passing. While I did not know her well, I remember her as a poised, graceful and friendly woman. And, Dick, I recall a great high school graduation party at your home. (I think your mom made "the guys" stay over in the barn the night before - since your "mixed gender" party was alcohol-free. She was definitely thinking ahead for ALL of our best interests, wasn't she?) Thinking of all of you.

Helen was a great lady & friend to my family. I have many wonderful memories of times spent with her on holidays, evenings at "Blitz Park", clam digging trips to the beach and at each others homes. May peace & love be with her family.

I met Helen in 1948 as she was on her way to get her wedding dress with her maid of honor, Fay Hill. We grew to be the best of friends and she, my back bone. I know that she will be very happy to be back together with Dick. My love and prayers go out to her dear family.
