Doris Marie (Clabusch) Goodeman, 87, of Saginaw, our feisty, loving, devoted, and most elegant mother, Grammie, and beloved friend was born into eternal life on the evening of Friday, August 9, 2019 at Brookdale – Saginaw. Doris was born in Saginaw on November 14, 1931, the only child of the late Gerhardt and Marie (Riley) Clabusch. She attended St. Paul Lutheran Grade School and was a 1949 graduate of Michigan Lutheran Seminary, where she remained an active supporter throughout her entire life. While traveling in the choir, she happened to meet Robert D. Goodeman in church. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on November 22, 1952. Sadly, he preceded her in death on January 4, 1989. Throughout life, Doris was known for her love of bowling, knitting, and time spent at the cottage. A true servant of the Lord, Doris was a member of St. John Lutheran Church in Zilwaukee, its Ladies Aid, and a Past President of the Lioness Club. She will forever be remembered for her compassionate and kind ways. Doris leaves to carry on her legacy, her two children: Karen Hruby (Gary Schram) and James (Jackie) Goodeman; her close friend and loving partner of thirty years, Mike Dunbar; grandchildren, Christen (Kimberly) Hruby, Jeff (Dawn) Goodeman, Keri (Bret) Orey; step-grandchildren, Scott (Janice) Baker, Stacey (Tim) Heneveld, Terri (Bob) Schubert, Jeanette Baker, along with many great-grandchildren.
