She was born Mary MacClelland Goodner, but from childhood, she was known as Marymac – although most of her grandchildren knew her Honey (because she was so sweet). She was the second of four daughters of Ed and Mary Goodner of Gainesville, Texas. The Goodner family moved to California when Marymac was still a young girl. She married my grandfather in 1936 and they had four boys. My grandfather died in 1960 (when he was 45) and she never remarried.
I remember her as one of the sweetest and loving people I've known. Her home was always full of laughter. Marymac died in 1997, but to this day I still miss her.
Happy birthday, Honey!
