She is survived by daughter Mitzi Floyd; son, Dean Goodman Jr; her granddaughter, Joy Parker; and three great grandchildren, Meia Parker, Leah Goodman, and Devon Parker.
She was a fabulous woman, the best mom, a good friend to many, a loving wife to our father until he passed, and a loving partner to her boyfriend Robert for the past 26 years. She will forever be a part of us all.
