Virginia Ruth Goodman Roesler followed the universal path into the next adventure surrounded by family, friends, and cats on January 27, 2018 due to breast cancer in her Fort Wayne Home. The Ishad Upanishads offers "…From fullness, fullness comes, when fullness is taken away from fullness, fullness still remains." Her life was full. She was the daughter of Victor and Maude Pritchard Goodman and partner with Elmo Davis Roesler, all who preceded her in death. She was sister to Dick Goodman who preceded her in death and survived by sister Jean (Galen) Goodman Potts. She was the loving mother of Jennifer (Steve Young) Ruth Roesler Young and Amy Sue Roesler Gregg, grandmother to Heather Gayle Young, Amber Dawn Young and Kaili Gregg, sister in law to Cynthia Adams Goodman. She had a vibrant career as a teacher and librarian in Indiana, Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia. In retirement, she became a volunteer at the Community Center, Arts United, Science Central and many others. She was an advocate for the underserved and enjoyed the vivacity of living in downtown Fort Wayne. All lives are full of joy and sorrow. Virginia flowed fiercely with grace through both. Come rejoice her fullness Thursday February 1 at 3pm at D.O. McComb & Sons Lakeside Park Funeral Home 1140 Lake Avenue with calling an hour prior.
