Carlene Goodliffe


Carlene M. Goodliffe, 79, passed away on November 29, 2018.  She was predeceased by her husband Arthur Goodliffe and is survived by her children Linda Peterman (Stuart) of Odessa,  Scott Goodliffe of Oldsmar, grandsons David Chiles of Tampa and Michael Goodliffe of Oldsmar, and brothers Richard Johnson (Janet) of West Boylston, MA and Donald Johnson (Bobbie) of Orange, MA and many nieces and nephews.

Carlene was born in Massachusetts and became a Registered Nurse in 1960. In 1961, she married the love of her life, Art, who was in the United States Air Force.  They lived in Massachusetts, California, Texas and later retired to Dunedin, Florida in 1974 where she worked as a nurse for 22 years.

Carlene retired in 1996 and played golf, volunteered at schools, libraries, and Suncoast Hospice and traveled extensively.  She was a member of St. Mark Lutheran Church, Dunedin since 1974.  She was a devoted, loving, supportive mother, grandmother, wife, sister, friend, and much more.  Her biggest joy and love were being with her family.  We will miss her so very much.

    Your sorrow is shared by many including her classmates of the Class of ’59. My friend of 62 years will be missed and traveling together has been a privilege. We saw a lot of interesting places, but the last cruise was the best-14 days of birthday celebration!!. See you around the ship

    Carlene and Art were such good friends while we were stationed at San Bernardino. Our kids grew-up together during the 4 1/2 years there. Carlene and I supported one another, as our USAF husbandsin a Top Secret C-130 outfit were on flights to who-knows-where quite often, and who knew if they’d come home safely. After all, it was during the Vietnam Conflict. But after moving to different bases, and then retiring we still kept in touch. Our tears shed when Art died unexpectedly, and now, I cry over the loss of dear Carlene and for the kids and grandkids. But–we must remember Jesus died and paid the ransom for us to have a hope of seeing our loved ones alive one day (and maybe not so far off), when all is made new. Psalm 37:29 promises the “righteous shall inherit the earth and live forever upon it.” So, Revelation 21:3-5 will be fulfilled. No more death, pain nor sorrow. Reunions will bring tears–but tears of happiness. May we keep our loved ones in hearts, but our prayers continue to the Creator, Jehovah through Christ, That “the kingdom come on earth…” for God’s will to be done. (Matthew 6:10. Joy Fulton
