Goldie Mozell Norman

July 3, 1926 — July 29, 2023


Goldie Mozell Norman passed away peacefully on the morning of July 29, 2023, surrounded by her family. She was a firm believer in God & Jesus Christ. She asked several times in the days before her passing to be taken home by them. Her family believes her wish was granted and she was surrounded by the love of God, family and all her friends who passed before her.

She was born in Missouri to William Charles Cobb and Julia Iola Emery on July 3, 1926. She had five brothers: Billy, Dennis, Linnis (aka Junior), Milburn and Joe. She often said she outlived all of them, living to be 97. She was the 2nd oldest and missed their presence in her life.

She married VY Norman who passed away in 1966. She had four children: Sandra, Virgil, Mary, and Jennifer (Tino Jr). VY’s passing left her a young 40-year-old widow. She often told of her rough life as a child, never having much in the way of material things, but shared the love of family and was glad to be raised a Christian. Family was always the most important part of her life. She raised four children and struggled to make ends meet. Not even knowing how to drive. She was very proud of her children and their accomplishments. She was also very proud of her six grandchildren: Garrett (Teruko), Jason (Stephanie), Lisa, Tino III (Kim), Ryan (Lacey) and Cory (Taylor). She was also blessed with nine great-grandchildren: Tino IV, Lillian, Ayame, Brantley, Annabell, Daisuke, Sibley, Addisen, and Brin.

Goldie and VY moved to California in 1957 with Sandra, Virgil, and Mary. Jennifer was born in California. At first, she was very sad to leave Missouri, but she eventually fell in love with her new home in Courtland, California and owned her home there until her death. Being a very small delta, farming community everyone knows everyone. Goldie never met a stranger. She was very outgoing and loved talking to people. She had many friendships with many people.

Goldie & VY belonged to the Circle 8er’s square dance group. They square danced on Saturday evenings and enjoyed going on camping trips and other activities with the square dancers. She loved to be active and was always on the go, especially vacationing with family. She was known by the family as Goldie Go Go.

Goldie’s love and presence will be missed dearly by her family and friends but will always be in our hearts.

A private family service will be held on August 7, 2023.
