On Saturday, August 1, 2020, Jamie Suzanne Goodrich, loving daughter, sister, and aunt, passed away at age 40.
Jamie was born on April 12, 1980 in Kingston, NY to Clark and Joy Goodrich. She was an Onteora High School graduate, class of 1998, where she was a pitcher for the 1997 MHAL Varsity Softball Championship Team, and played on the 1998 MHAL Varsity Basketball Championship Team. As a gifted athlete, she also played on several travel softball teams, and volleyball at SUNY Brockport. Recently, Jamie enjoyed sailing on the Hudson River.
Jamie loved animals, especially her black lab, Shady, who passed away in 2019. Shady was the love of her life, and they would often take walks and hikes together. She absolutely adored her family and always made sure they knew it. Jamie took every opportunity to travel the country to see her family, especially to see her niece and nephew. She was never without a gift, always seeing the joy she could pass to others through a bargain she found at a store. Her family would describe her as loyal, and a beacon of sunshine and laughter.
She is survived by her parents, Clark and Joy Goodrich of Woodstock, her brother, Chad Goodrich, and his wife, Kristen, of Brentwood, NH, her sister, Jessie Goodrich of Kingston, her nephew, Jake Goodrich, her niece, Katie Goodrich, as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was especially close with her Aunt Arlene, her Aunt Donna, and 98-year-old Great Aunt Mae. Jamie has rejoined her predeceased family members; her maternal grandparents, Stanley and Gloria, her paternal grandparents, Chester and Rita, her Uncle David, her boyfriend, George, and her dog, Shady.
