Arline Claire Goade was born on August 17, 1943 and passed away on July 26, 2022.

Arline grew up in Fields Landing with her sisters and was a lifelong resident of Eureka. Arline was a majorette, beginning at Field Elementary School through high school with her sisters, Pat and Shirley. She was a member of the 4-H and won many awards for baking and sewing. After graduation from Eureka High School in 1961 she went to work at the Arcata Union newspaper and around this time she met the love of her life, Warren Goade. They were married June 9, 1962.

Arline also worked at LP Lumber Mill, helped Warren manage their local gas stations and later worked as a housekeeper for many of her friends. Arline loved spending time with her family and friends and enjoyed going to Bingo whenever she was able. She enjoyed picking blackberries, apples and making pies and jelly, which she was famous for.

She is survived by her daughters, Annette Goade-Wells (Bill) and Kim Brown; grandchildren Lisa Gutierrez (Ricky), Ryan Alden (Sherrie), Jessica Wilhelm (Thomas), Kyle Brown (Sarah), Matt Brown (Meegen); numerous great grandchildren; her sisters, Shirley Abbott, Nancy Armenta and Kathy Salizzoni (Buddy); and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband Warren Goade; son in laws Mark Brown and Richard Alden; sister Pat Perrett, brother in laws Loren Abbott and Tom Perrett; mother and father Specs and Mildred Samuelson; mother and father in law Wallace and Ruth Goade; aunt and uncle Gertie and Pete McCready; cousin Walter Weger; and special friend Mary Brazil.

Our family would like to extend our deepest appreciation to the Staff at Frye’s Care Home for taking such wonderful care of Arline and treating her like family. We would also like to thank the staff and doctors who also took great care of her through the PACE program at the Humboldt Senior Resource Center and Hospice of Humboldt.

A very special thank you to the staff at Ocean View Cemetery who were able to locate our father, Warren Goade’s, ashes after 22 years. Arline’s heart was broke when Warren passed away and it will be a heartfelt blessing to reunite them at Sunset Cemetery with her family.

There will be a celebration of life on Saturday August 13, 2022 at 4566 Excelsior Road, Eureka from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
