Joyce Gooden Atkin "My Sweet Girl" - "Together Again"
Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and caring friend, Joyce Gooden Atkin, 80 years young, passed away peacefully, November 5, 2008.
Mom was an Angel in Disguise. She was a generous, caring, and loving spirit and anyone that knew her was blessed as she touched all our hearts deeply.
Mom was born August 21, 1928 in Boise, ID to RC Gooden and Minnie Henderson. On August 6, 1949, Mom married the Love of her Life, Richard G. Atkin who preceded her in death along with her two sons, Robert W. Atkin, Jeffery L. Atkin. The Foursome is complete now and she can enjoy playing golf in the Heavens, with the favorite men in her life.
Mom graduated from East High School in 1945 and was a faithful Sorority Member of the Alpha Theta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi. Mom was Dad's right-hand girl, working side by side at Young Electric Sign Company, Ogden Division, as Credit manager.
Mom is survived by her daughter, Victoria Holloway, five grandchildren; Eric, Mike, Brittany, Heather and Amber. She also has seven great-grandchildren.
The Family would like to express a "Special Thanks" to Alta Ridge of Holladay and their very devoted staff, for loving and caring for her like family. Robert and the girls will be remembered in our hearts for making her last moments on earth happy ones.
