Goldie Hubbard Cannon, 85, of Yarmouth, Maine, passed away peacefully at Bay Square assisted living facility in Yarmouth, Maine on Dec. 25, 2021.
She was a caring, compassionate, sweet, warm and loving person.
Goldie was born in Rice, Texas on April 8, 1936, the only child of Charles T. and Ruby (Hervey) Hubbard. She grew up in Corsicana, Texas on her grandparent’s farm and in many other places in the country while her father helped build oil pipelines during World War II in support of the war effort.
Goldie graduated from the Columbus, Tennessee high school in 1954 and attended the University of Kentucky. After college, she became a secretary at the Methodist Publishing House in Nashville, Tennessee. Later, Goldie joined Eastern Airlines, based in Atlanta, Georgia as a flight attendant where she met and married Charles M. Cannon. They moved to Dallas, Texas when he became a pilot for Braniff International Airways.
While raising her daughter Terri at home, Goldie became a talented crafter and excellent cook. After Terri was in college, she worked as a travel agent and then manager at Dillard’s department store in Fort Worth, Texas. In the early 2000s she moved to Maine to help take care of her two grandchildren, Charlotte and Bennett.
She said one of her greatest joys was helping to raise them. At home in Boothbay Harbor, she enjoyed gardening, crafts, playing mahjong with dear friends, and going back to Texas to visit friends.
Goldie was predeceased by her parents. She is survived by her husband, Charles M. Cannon of Yarmouth; daughter, Terri Cannon of Freeport and fiancé Billy Call of Dover, New Hampshire; and her loving grandchildren, Charlotte and Bennett Joseph of Freeport.
There will be a memorial service in the spring at South Freeport Congregational Church in South Freeport and an interment in their Memorial Garden.
