Ms. Lula Marie Goodman, 83, was born Nov. 14, 1938, to the late Louise Goodman and Willie Goodman Sr., in Delray Beach, Fla. She transitioned from earth to heaven on July 26, 2022, at her residence.
“Mickey,” as she was affectionately known to family and friends, was raised in several areas of the East Coast, but settled here on the Eastern Shore, making Accomack County her home. She received her education in the public schools of Accomack County and held several employment positions. She worked at Holly Farms, now Tyson Foods, in Temperanceville, and served as a bus driver for Accomack County Public Schools for 20 years, until retirement.
Mickey began her Christian journey at St. Joseph Holiness Church under the leadership of the late Bishop Elton Brown at a young age. She was eventually led by the Holy Spirit to join Jerusalem Baptist Church under the leadership of Dr. Michael T. Scott. She served on various ministries such as the missionary ministry, as well as a member of the senior choir. She always looked forward to attending Bible study and Sunday worship service.
Funeral services were held Saturday, Aug. 6, 2022, at Jerusalem Baptist Church, Temperanceville, with the Rev. Richard Holland officiating. Interment was in the church cemetery.
She leaves to cherish fond memories: two sons, Arthur and Patrick Harmon; one daughter, Tabatha Morris; 21 grandchildren; 28 great-grandchildren; two individuals she lovingly raised as her own, Andre Hope and the Rev. Alisa Tarney; a close friend who was like a sister, Helena Johnson; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Arrangements are by the Cooper & Humbles Funeral Co., Accomac.
