Elizabeth S. “Ish” Goodman
It is with great sadness that we say farewell to a founding member and staunch supporter of our society, Elizabeth S. “Ish” Goodman.
Ish passed away at the age of 93 on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
In 1976, Ish was one of the charter members of the Mount Union Area Historical Society. She contributed her many talents to the society in a myriad of ways, most notably as the Society’s long-time Archivist and go-to person for answers to questions about Mount Union history and genealogy.
Mrs. Goodman was also an active member of the Mount Union Presbyterian Church, serving as organist (for over 40 years!), choir member, member of session, and clerk of session.
She was a member of the Presbyterian Women’s Association, the Shakespeare Club, the Red Hat Society, the 20th Century Women’s Club, the Bridge Club, and a lifetime member of the Mount Union Alumni Association. Ish also taught piano lessons, was a Cub Scout den mother, and served on the Mount Union Area School Board.
Those wishing to make memorial contributions in memory of Mrs. Goodman may do so to either the Mount Union Presbyterian Church, P.O. Box 163, Mount Union, PA 17066; or to the Mount Union Historical Society, P.O. Box 118, Mount Union, PA 17066.
