Interment will take place at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 7, at Ridge Park Cemetery in Hillsboro, Texas.
Amy was born in West, Texas, to Lora Ellen and Cam Singleton Davidson Sr. and she was raised there. Amy's greatest joys were her husband and life-long love, Charles A. Goldsmith, and her family. Amy and Charles were married for 71 years and sweethearts even longer. She was a homemaker at heart, making every living space a home, no matter how humble. She loved to cook and made many memorable meals, especially with vegetables from her own garden. Her surviving family still misses her cooking even though she has been unable to use that gift for several years. She loved flowers and music, which was fortunate, for her other family members were always making music of some kind or in the process of learning a piece of music. In her early years, she would often sing along and sometimes created her own songs. For about 28 years, Mrs. Goldsmith worked alongside her husband in textile mills in Texas, including West, Itasca, Mexia, Corsicana, Bonham, and Hillsboro. She took pride in her work as a battery filler, in the manufacturing of cotton cloth.
Mrs. Goldsmith was preceded in death by her husband, Charles A. Goldsmith; son, Larry Charles Goldsmith; her parents, Lora Ellen and Cam Singleton Davidson Sr; a sister, Katherine Vrana; and brother, Cam Singleton Davidson Jr.
She is survived by her daughter, Amy Jo Patterson and husband, Leslie, of Corsicana; grandchildren, Phyllis and Wes Cope, Peri Patterson, David and Judy Patterson, Kimberly Scholl, Debbie and Frank Holloway, Terri McClusky; eleven great-grandchildren; sisters, Nellie Bine, Vivian McGinnis and Laura Grace and husband, Judd.
Honorary pallbearers will be Dustin Aaron Hoover, U.S. Army, Brain Patterson, USMC, Toby Scholl, Seth Cope, James Cope, Jacob Norwood, Christian Norwood, and Ryan Liebe.
The family wishes to acknowledge with deep gratitude the dedicated caregivers of Country Meadows, Dr. Charles I. Biltz and his nurse, Jennifer Seaton, and Family First Hospice of Ennis. May God bless all of you.
