Goldie Gudal

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Goldie, who passed away in Chemainus. Goldie was born in Chemainus and was predeceased by her parents Michael and Zlata Gudal and her cousin Randy Gudal. Survived by her sister Olga, her cousin Goldie with her sons Brian and John (Frances) and relatives in Ontario and Croatia. Goldie attended elementary school in Chemainus and graduated from Ladysmith High School. It was then onto Normal School and a fulfilling career as an elementary school teacher in Duncan. Goldie lived her entire life in Chemainus and was very active in the community. She was a life-long member of St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church and was involved very much in the Chemainus Senior Center as well as volunteering with various organizations. She had a wonderful network of friends with whom she socialized with and went on many excursions. Goldie never forgot her Croatian heritage and attended many Tamburitz Festivals over the years. She was a kind, caring, thoughtful person and will be missed by all who knew her. Thank you to the staff of Chemainus Health Care Center and Dr. M. Archdekin for the outstanding care of Goldie, especially in her final days. Arrangements entrusted to Sands Funeral Chapels, Duncan.
