MARBLEHEAD Norma Jane (Price) Goodwin, 88, of Marblehead, passed away peacefully on March 4 after a lengthy illness. Born in 1931 in Washington, D.C., Norma grew up in and around Stamford, Connecticut and graduated from Stamford High School. A summer trip to Marblehead to visit her sister led Norma’s life in a new direction when she met Edward H. Goodwin. After a romance that started with a swim across Marblehead Harbor, the two were married and built the home where they lived together for the next 60 years. Norma worked in Marblehead at both Canniffe’s clothing store and Gilbert and Cole, but found her life’s purpose in raising her four children. Always quick to join them at play, Norma became a second mother for many of her children’s friends. A talented gardener and crafter, Norma was most at home when spending time with family, friends, and a rotating menagerie of animals. Her warm nature and good humor were a gift to all. Norma is predeceased by her husband, Edward H. Goodwin, her parents, Charles A. and Christine Luth Price, her stepmother Edna Walker Price, her brothers Vaughn, William, and Dale Price, and her sisters Alta Grimes, Melba Brod, and Wanda Bartlett. She is survived by her four children, William and his wife Elizabeth of Middletown, Rhode Island; Vaughn and his wife Karyn of Hope, Maine; Rebecca Hastings and her husband Robert Jr. of Marblehead; and Christina Goodwin and her husband David Brady of Rockport. Her beloved grandchildren are Sara McCurry and her husband Brigadier General Michael C. McCurry, Christina M. Goodwin, Thomas Goodwin, Hannah Goodwin, Rachel Hastings and her husband Andrew Crowley, Sarah Hastings, Morgan Brady, and Finn Brady, and she was delighted by her six great-grandchildren. Surviving siblings are Charles Price of Washington and Linda Willms of Florida. Norma’s family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the staff of Salem’s AdviniaCare (formerly Grosvener Park) and Care Dimensions for their compassionate care at the end of her life. Visiting hours will be held at the Eustis & Cornell of Marblehead, 142 Elm Street on Sunday, March 8, from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m., followed by a service at 4:00 p.m. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited.

Bill, Vaughn, Becky, Christina and family,
Please accept my condolences on Nonnie's passing. I will always remember visiting your home on Meadow Lane with fondness; picking fresh fruit, romping around in the yard, following all the animals around (and wishing we had as many at our house!), and being the recipient of Nonnie's gentle and caring way. She was a lovely woman, with a big heart - and smile to match, and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Sending hugs...
Julie Peach Sullivan

Please accept our deepest sympathy... Our prayers are with you.
Aunt Nonnie, as she was called by all of her nieces and nephews,
was always the teacher. Art, Dance, Music and playing jokes on any sister,brother or friend were always being arranged...
Nonnie and I were good friends rather then Aunt and Niece.....I was born in 1936 and we were together, in Stamford, for many years...
My mother, Melba, would drop us off at the movies to enjoy an afternoon treat...
I loved spending a summer holiday in Marblehead. She and I played many a joke on Ed, Walt, and Wanda..
JOHN & I ARE UNABLE TO BE WITH YOU AS YOU CELEBRATE HER BEAUTIFUL LIFE. Remembering her smile and Giving heart will last forever. God Bless Her and Each of You.
