Brett Goodell Obituary – At the Hospice of Northern Colorado, Brett Goodel passed away. Her hometown was Eaton, Colorado. On October 20, in Greeley, Colorado, she was born to Louis and Mary (Purkett) Andolsek. The first baby to be born in a hospital, Brett was the fourteenth baby to be born. She was born and raised on a farm east of Eaton, and on May 10, 1948, in Raton, New Mexico, she tied the knot with Orville Goodell.
In 1947, Orville and his brother George started working in construction, which they did until 1979. They were prosperous up until 1979. Orville started spending the majority of his time away from home during the workweek and coming home on the weekends in the late 1950s. In many ways, Brett served as both their children’s mother and father. Orville and Brett have both taken numerous trips with other members of the Colorado Contractors Association.
They also visited many places over the course of several years with a local group of friends known as The Dirty Dozen. With a variety of interests, including knitting, crafts, gardening, and fishing, Brett was a stay-at-home mother. In her spare time, she liked to play golf and watch the Denver Broncos. Her grandchildren, great grandchildren, and other family members were her favorite people to be around.
Despite the fact that Brett’s health had declined recently, Cindy took over as his primary caregiver because she wanted to keep Brett at home for as long as possible. She took part in activities at the Eaton Country Club. The survivors of Brett include her children Pam Terrones of Scottsdale, Arizona and Jack (Cindy) Goodell of Windsor, Colorado.
She also leaves behind her grandchildren Matt Goodell (Brianna Chaney) of Eaton, Bethany (Phil) LaBue of Bridgeport, West Virginia, and Brett Goodell of Windsor and his fiancée Sarah Baumann. She was preceded in death by her parents, thirteen siblings, and husband Orville, who passed away in 1993.
