Goldie was born Oct. 4, 1916, in Viola, Wis., to Charles and Edith (Shreve) Witzel. Goldie graduated from Wisconsin Adventist Academy and attended what is now Andrews University. She married Merle M. VanDeWarker on April 2, 1938, in Viola, Wis. Goldie was a full-time homemaker who kept a busy schedule caring for her family. She was a member of the Fairplain Garden Club, she was a former member of the Berrien County Extension Club, and served many years as a judge in the home economics building at the Berrien County Youth Fair. In Goldie's spare time, she enjoyed bowling, needlework, cross stitching and oil painting. She was an avid golfer and an honored Gold Star Mom.

The light of her life was her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We will all miss Nanie very much.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; a son, Richard VanDeWarker; brothers Harley, Albert and Clifford Witzel; and sister Bernice Smith.
