In Loving Memory

Goggin, Mildred A.

September 14, 1933 - January 10, 2024

Goggin, Mildred A.

(nee Allen) born September 14, 1933, passed away January 10, 2024.  Born in Silvermines, to Alma & Claude Allen.  Preceded in death by her parents, 3 sisters, a brother, her husband, Noel E. Goggin, her son, Steven N. Goggin and her daughter, Kathy D. Goggin. Mildred is survived by her three daughters, Retha (Willard) Asberry, Karen Goggin, and Tammy (Michael) Steimel.  Nine grandchildren, David (Cindy) Asberry, Kimberly (Timothy) Moeckli, Timothy Asberry, Brian (Jessica) West, Kenneth (Lindsay) Steimel, Joel Asberry, Christopher Steimel, Amanda Steimel, Matthew Steimel.  Eight great-grandchildren, Alexander, Brenden, David, Breana, Kinsley, Mason, Paige, Kaitlynn and many family members and dear friends.

Mildred and Noel were married for 63 years.  During those years, Noel cared for, provided, and insured a good life for both of them.  Mildred repaid with undying love, loyalty, and affection.  They raised their one son and four daughters in South St. Louis.  Together they built a life of beautiful memories and fun times with their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Family was Mildred’s biggest blessing.  Not a holiday went by where she didn’t plan and cook a big meal for her whole family to gather and enjoy.  Many holidays were spent laughing and playing games at the dining room table over dessert of Mildred’s famous carrot cake.

Mildred was also very involved with her church.  She was a member of Jewel Baptist Church for 50 years.  She made many wonderful and lifelong friends that she cherished as if they were family.

Mildred spent many years of her life caring for children, running a daycare out of her home.  Just as her church friends became family, so did the families whose children were loved, taught, and spoiled at Grandma Mildred’s house.

The money earned babysitting was used to enjoy traveling with Noel, her daughters, and her grandchildren.  One of her most memorable trips was her trip to Ireland, where she made sure to kiss the Blarney Stone.  Boating, horseback riding, zip-lining. She did it.  And had fun!  90 years of it!

Services: Visitation at Kutis Affton Chapel, 10151 Gravois, on Sunday, January 14, 4-8:00 p.m. and funeral service at Kutis Affton, Monday at 11:30 a.m. Interment Sunset Memorial Park.

  1. I am sorry for your loss, you will all be in my prayers. I’m sorry I cannot attend the services, but a love offering will be given to the benevolence fund at Retha’s home church, Friendship Baptist Church Piedmont Missouri.

  2. I will miss our talks. We talked about a little of everything when I helped her on Tuesdays. She truly loved her family and shared many stories about them. I wish my condolences to her family. I hope you all have peace in knowing her faith was strong and she is with the lord.

  3. I just read of her passing and wanted to express my sincere sympathies and prayers to the entire family. Such a wonderful lady. I have fond memories of times spent with the family as a kid. May cherished memories sustain all of you during this difficult time.
