Obituary for Barbara Lee Good

Barbara L. Good (nee. Wilcox), a resident of Milford, MI died on May 20, 2021. She was 79 years old.

Barbara Lee was raised in Allen Park, Michigan and graduated from Allen Park High School in 1959. Barbara attended College for one year at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana prior to marrying Timothy Good in 1960. They were married by Pastor Farnsworth at Evangel Baptist Church where they both attended church since childhood. Barb and Tim spent their early years in Wheaton, Illinois while Tim finished his undergraduate degree. They welcomed their first Son, Timothy, in 1962. After College, they lived in Flat Rock, Michigan where they welcomed their second son, Tom, in 1965. Finally, they welcomed their daughter, Kelley in 1972 and together raised their three children in their beautiful farmhouse in Carleton, MI.

Barbara began her working career at Oakwood Hospital as a unit clerk when Kelley began school. She continued her career in healthcare as she worked as a medical receptionist for a private practice for many years, then joined University of Michigan Health System in the 90's working in medical billing and finally as a receptionist for family practice, from which she retired. During her working career, Barbara made countless friendships that were lifelong and treasured.

Barbara was a loving and dedicated mother to her three children. One of Barbara's many talents was sharing her love through the food that she prepared for family and friends. She was known the most amazing home-cooked meals, including her wonderful Sunday roast beef dinners. She created beautiful holiday memories for her family with her traditional Christmas breakfast and Christmas dinner that she hosted for 54 years. Barbara loved being a grandmother to her 7 grandchildren. Her greatest joy was spending quality time with each of them, attending their school functions and cheering them on at their extracurricular activities. Barbara had many talents, including: cake decorating, sewing, tole painting, oil painting, crocheting, knitting, woodworking, needle point, needle work, and quilting.

Shortly after her retirement, Barbara enjoyed traveling with friends to quilt shows and joined a senior quilt group in New Boston, MI. During her retirement years, she moved to Milford, Michigan to join a community that she loved. She attended and joined Milford Presbyterian Church on Main St. She enjoyed attending Milford’s, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Thanksgiving Day parades. She joined the Milford senior center and became a member of their quilting and knitting groups where she developed treasured and special friendships.

Our loving Mother displayed such a sweet spirit and never ending patience during these difficult years. She went to Heaven, free of her burden, on May 20th 2021.

She is survived by her children, Timothy David (Christine) Good, Thomas Alan (Kimberly) Good and Kelley Lee (Mark) Gorbe; grandchildren, Kyle Thomas Good, Shelby Nicole (George) Bowerman, Timothy Peter (Michelle) Good, Brittany Marie Good, Jordan Alan Good, McKenna Lynn Good and Aiden Johnathon Gorbe and she is also expecting her first great-granddaughter, Evelyn Tyler Good in October, 2021.
