On July 3rd our heavenly Father welcomed Saline Barton Goforth home to join her husband, H. L. (Dub), her parents, Louis Fonda and Mary L. Camp Barton, her sisters, Opal and Christine and her brother, Tec. There are many special friends and relatives left with treasured memories of a beautiful, talented lady. Included are son and their wives, B. J. and Brenda of Richardson and Ronald E. and Starmye Goforth of Arlington, her grandchildren, Cambridge Carruth of Carrollton and Salyor Pace of New York City, two nieces and their husbands, Susan and Marshall Russell fo Woodville, Barbara and Tommy Pollock of North Richland Hills and two nephews, Dennis Barton of Palestine and Donald Barton of Fort Worth and many cousins including Perry and Lois Camp and Neal and Modelle Hargrove whose love and special care enhanced Saline's final years.
In 1974 Saline returned to her roots in Anderson County placing her membership in Southside Baptist Church where she has remained faithful. Saline retired from Montgomery Wards but her true talents were exhibited with her blue ribbons awarded for her quilting and china painting that has spread to international destinations. Area nursing homes were supplied on a regular basis with her lap robes that were sewn with love.
