Obituary for Frances A Goeke

Frances Young Goeke, 78, of Lawrenceville, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 8th.
She was born on May 17, 1942 in Trenton, NJ; daughter of the late Frank and Mildred Young. She is survived by her loving husband of 59 years, Noel ; a brother and his wife, George and Connie Young of Ewing Twp., NJ; sister in law, Wilma Goeke of Virginia; two nieces, Lorraine Ellerth and her husband Dan; Georgette Jung and her husband Tom; one nephew, Alan Goeke and his wife Lynn. Her great-nieces and nephews; Andrew, Jocelyn, Jackson, Jimmy, Shelby, Maxwell and Daniella.
Frances attended Sacred Heart School and graduated from Cathedral High School in 1960. She started work for the State of NJ in 1960 and retired as a Principle Administrative Assistant to the Attorney General in 1999 after 39 years of service.
Frances married her handsome childhood sweetheart, Noel, on September 23, 1961. They spent 59 loving years as the very best of friends. They enjoyed cruises, traveling around the US and Caribbean, and her favorite vacation spot Hilton Head SC. When they weren’t traveling, they enjoyed going to Flyers hockey games, the local theatre, dining out and relaxing by their pool.
One of her true passions was Genealogy. She was active in the Central Jersey Genealogy Society. She published their newsletter, and took several research trips all over the US and one to England with her husband and parents. Over several years she worked on her own, and assisted others in their family ancestry.
“Aunt Fran” to many, she will be remembered for her devotion to her family and friends. Whether it be a Girl Scout patch, a school play, a religious event, a soccer or basketball game, she was always the first in line to help and support the people she loved. She had a special bond with her niece Daniella, whom she babysat from birth; she never missed a basketball game and always wore her team colors.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday at 10:00 at Sacred Heart Church, 343 S. Broad Street, Trenton, NJ. Burial will follow in Riverview Cemetery. Visitation will be Monday evening from 5 to 7 at Blackwell Memorial Home, 21 N. Main Street, Pennington, NJ. www.blackwellmh.com
