Mildred O'Reilly Goebel

Sacred Heart Academy (1945-1967)

Mildred O-Reilly Goebel, Sacred Heart Academy Class of 1937, of Roseburg, Oregon, died on October 20, 2010 at the age of 92.   Mildred’s son Richard shared that she suffered a heart attack on New Year’s Eve in 2009, and that she occasionally reminded others of her remarkably recovery by waving a doctor’s written prediction that she could be expected to live 5 to 7 days following that episode.  A fall the week before she passed caused 11 of her 13 living children to travel to Oregon where they spent special time together in what would be her final days.  Richard, who has been living with and helping care for his parents for a number of years, shared that his mom had special memories of her high school days at Sacred Heart Academy.  She was particularly fond of the Sister who taught her to make pie crust (a lesson put to use many times to benefit her large family).   Mildred was preceded in death by her husband Ed in 2002 and one son in 1987.    Our sympathy to the family as they celebrate their mother and her full life while mourning her passing.
