    Notes 
    • Marriage
      Date: 21 MAR 1959
      Place: Las Vegas, Clark, Nevada, United States
      Memo: When Cecil was asked about his second marriage to Goldie, he stated they were in Las Vegas and just decided "to do it again!" He said he didn't remember ever sharing with anyone that they had had a second civil ceremony and was surprised this genealogist had uncovered it.

  • Notes 
    • Goldie was first married to Harold T. Uphouse shortly after her 18th birthday and moved with her new husband to California. During WWII, she and daughter "Patti" stayed briefly in Portland, Oregon with her mother and sister while Harold was on duty. She later moved back to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she stayed until Harold returned at the end of the war.

      About 1954, Goldie and Harold divorced. She and daughters Patti and Suzi moved to Riverside, CA, to stay with Goldie's sister, Bea. During this time, Goldie went to business school and the girls enjoyed spending time with their "Auntie Bea", who was well known for her full cupboards of food and large play yard. Both Goldie and the girls fondly reflect upon these years, which they call their "bachelorhood". although she wasn't searching for a husband, when Cecil Earl Edwards or "Ed" came along, Pat and Suzi decided he'd make a great dad. Goldie and Cecil married in 1957, and their daughter Robin Colleen was born later that same year. Goldie was again to spend another wartime alone, as Cecil was a gunnery sergeant in the USMC, and was sent to Viet Nam during the 60's. Goldie and the girls "held down the fort" at their home in Vista, CA, and never spoke of the possibility that Dad might not make it home. When Cecil did finally return, Goldie was very active in numerous community activities, especially the PTA and girl scouts. When her youngest daughter was seven years old, she and Cecil bought her a pony, the beginning of a lifelong love of horses, which continues to this day. The family became members of the Vista Palomar Riders, and continued to be very active with the group until 1976 when the family relocated about a 45 miles north to Temecula, Riverside Co, CA. They moved their collection of horses to their five acre ranch named "Vaya Con Dios Arabians".
