Goldie Linville

    Goldie Mae Linville, 83, of Caldwell, died Monday, Feb. 3, 1997, at home of natural causes.  Funeral services will be conducted Thursday, at 3 p.m., Feb. 6, at Flahiff Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.  Reverend Thomas Dougherty of the Cloverdale Church of God will officiate.  Burial will follow at the Wilder Cemetery.
    Goldie was born Sept. 14, 1913, to John and Orpha Ellison in Douglas County, Missouri.  As a young woman she moved to Oregon where she met and married Robert Ray Linville.  They later moved to Idaho and had resided in Caldwell for over 42 years.  
    Her greatest happiness was being with her family.  She was truly a devoted, loving wife and mother.  Her gentle kind ways and enthusiasm over small things such as flowers, garden, birds, animals and nature in general made her a joy to be around.  She was loved by all who knew her and she will always be missed. "She was such a good loving mother, my best friend; oh, who was happier than I when I could still say the dear name "mother" and it was heard, and whom can I say it to now?"
    She is survived by her husband, Ray; two daughters, Mary Rose Hollie and husband, Vann of Nampa, Colleen McCrea and husband, John of Boise; four grandchildren, Michael Hollie and wife, Cindy and great-grandsons, Matthew and David of Chattanooga, TN, Gary Hollie and wife, Darcy and great-granddaughter, McCall of Woodinville, WA, Tracy Mills and husband, Alan of Beaverton, OR, and Amy McCrea of Boise.  Also a brother, Everett Ellison and wife, Dorothy of Nampa; a sister, Ruby Ross and husband, Floyd of Pamona, CA; and a sister-in-law, Verna Ellison of Caldwell.
    She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother and sister.
    The family suggests memorials to Pet Haven or to the Idaho Humane Society.
    Friends may call today until 8 p.m. at the Flahiff Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.
