Alice Louise Goodall, 91, New Town, died Sunday, Sept. 13, 2009 in a Watford City hospital. Alice was born Dec. 15, 1917 in Max, the daughter of James and Louise (Watterberg) Sullivan. She was raised in western North Dakota and graduated from Sanish High School in 1936. On July 15, 1936 Alice was united in marriage to Francis Goodall in Stanley. They made their living ranching on the Goodall ranch near Sanish.
In 1954 they moved to Beulah when the Garrison Dam Project forced them off their ranch. In 1956, the family returned to McKenzie County and relocated their ranch on Antelope Creek. Alice and Francis retired from ranching in 1979.
They then moved into New Town and turned the ranching operation over to their daughter Joanne and her husband Darrel Quale.
Throughout her life, Alice was a dedicated ranch wife, mother and grandmother. She always raised a big garden and enjoyed cooking, feeding and entertaining family, friends and neighbors. She also enjoyed picking berries and wildflowers, making jams and jellies and was an exceptional bread and bun maker. Alice cherished special times with her family; teaching the kids to swim in the Missouri River, going on picnics and having an annual Easter egg hunt for her grandchildren. Because Francis was a pilot, Alice learned to fly and proved to be an excellent navigator for him.
Alice was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church and its Altar Society, the North Dakota Cattle Woman's Association and the New Town Library Guild.
Alice is survived by her sons, Robert "Bob" of Anaheim, Calif., and Steve "Butch" (Patti) of Dickinson; daughters, Joanne Quale (Darrel) of New Town, Anne Stout (Glenn) of Anchorage, Alaska and Mary Lou Goodall of Williston, 15 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren; brother, Roger Sullivan (Enla) of Rexburg, Idaho; sisters, Doris Chiasson of Thibodaux, La., and Ruth Ward of Gretna, La.; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Francis who died on Oct. 27, 2000; daughter Jeanne Murray; brother, John Sullivan and sister, Molly Watts.
Funeral Thursday, Sept. 17, 2009 at 11 a.m. in St. Anthony Catholic Church, New Town. Interment Sanish Riverview Cemetery. Langhoans Funeral Home, New Town.
