Funeral services for Edna I.B. Gooden Goodie Belcher will be held Tuesday, Dec. 22, at Greater Haynes Memorial C.O.G.I.C., 601 N. Denton in Mexia. Minister Kelvin Belcher will be eulogist.
Edna Gooden Belcher was born June 22, 1945 to Daniel Gooden and Eva Mae Kelley. She was called home Dec. 17, 2015.
She was the most spectacularly complicated, feisty, beautiful, passionate, wonderfully stubborn person there ever was. She loved to laugh and was so far ahead of her time. She was the first person of color to work for the IRS in Texas. She never believed that there was not anything that a person could not do. She is missed and we know she is already hanging out with her Ace, her brother bunny, and listening to Bill Withers.
She is survived by her husband, Willie Clyde Belcher; children, Amanda Goodie, Eva Preston, and Zamfira Elizabeth Bingham, and Daniel Goodie.
Pearly Gates Funeral Home is in charge of professional services.
