Nancy A. Goodreau, 88, of 142 Parkway Road, St. Marys, passed away Saturday, December 26, 2020 at the Elk Haven Nursing Home after a brief illness.

She was born August 8, 1932, in St. Marys, daughter of the late Elmer G. and Ruth Gerg Smith.  Nancy was a lifelong resident of the area and was a graduate of St. Marys High School, Class of 1950.

On August 17, 1953, in St. Marys, Nancy married John C. Goodreau, who preceded her in death on April 21, 1991.

She is survived by a daughter, Linda Klaiber and her fiancé Anthony Leo of Camp Hill, PA; three sons: Terrance J. Goodreau of Palm Springs, CA; Randall G. Goodreau and his wife Jamie of Perkasie, PA; and Thomas S. Goodreau and his fiancé Staci Enyedy of St. Marys; her five grandchildren: Jordan Goodreau, Ashtyn Goodreau, Tara Klimowicz, Adam Goodreau, and Lorena Goodreau; and by her four great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband and parents, Nancy was preceded in death by two grandchildren: Jeffrey Goodreau and Ryan Klaiber; her sister, Doris M. Smith; and by two brothers: Lavern C. Smith and Harrison J. Smith.  She was the last member of her immediate family.

Nancy was a member of the St. Mary’s Church and the Rosary Altar Society.  She was also lifelong member of the St. Marys Sportsmen’s Club, a former member of the BPO Elks Club, and a cub scout den mother for ten years.  She was a loyal fan of Penn State and the Pittsburgh Steelers.  She enjoyed bowling, playing cards with her friends, and her time spent at her camp on East Branch Dam.  Her greatest joy however, was each moment spent with her family.

A private visitation and funeral service will be held for the family.  Burial will be in the St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.
