Arletta Googe Obituary

Arletta A. Googe, 82, passed away March 10th, 2024, at Eaglecrest Assisted Living Center, Salina, surrounded by her family. She was born on March 20, 1941, in Salina, to Vernon and Mabel (Burt) Hays. On June 25, 1959, she married Robert B. Googe at Schilling Air Force Base in Salina. The next 21 years were spent as a loyal housewife to her husband as they traveled together to many different places in the world in the Air Force.

Arletta worked at Woolco and Sears both in Salina during her lifetime. She spent many hours crocheting various items for family members. She loved to crochet as well as do other crafts. She was an avid bingo player and used to go play bingo as often as she could. She was quite the winner, too.

Survivors include her daughter, Jeanette Googe of Hutchinson; a granddaughter, Jessica Rodriguez of Toledo, OH and a grandson, Jason Googe also of Toledo, OH; a niece, Jennifer Wilson-Compton and husband, Jeff of Hoisington; a nephew, Richard Dallen and wife, Violeta of Copperas Cove, TX; 5 great grandkids; and 7 great nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bob, of 64 years; her son, Michael, 61 years; and her sister, Marsha Dallen, 74 and her brother-in-law, James Dallen, 72.

The family would like to especially thank the staff at Eaglecrest Assisted Living center for their excellent and loving care of my mother during her time there. The staff there is top notch, and second to none, and I would highly recommend them for their excellent care.

Arletta was a lifetime member of the VFW. Memorials may be sent to the Salina VFW Post 1432 in care of Ryan Mortuary.

Services will be held at the Ryan Mortuary, Salina, on March 16th, 2024, at 10:00 am. Interment will follow at the Poheta Cemetery, near Kipp, Ks.
