Obituary

On Monday, March 18, 2019, Wrenn B. Gooding of Annapolis, Md., died peacefully after a battle with cancer. She was born on April 5, 1951, in Denver, Colo., to Lieutenant Colonel Frank Beadle and Mary Annette Beadle. Growing up as the daughter of an Army Lieutenant Colonel, Wrenn lived in many different cities. Ultimately, she ended up in Phoenixville, Penn., where she graduated from high school in 1969. Wrenn was a proud veteran of the Navy with 23 years of both active duty and reserve service as a hospital corpsman. She joined the Navy during the Vietnam War,was recalled to active duty during Operation Desert Storm and was stationed at the Bethesda Naval Hospital.
In February of 1986, Wrenn met her husband, Thomas, on a ski trip organized by the Crab Town Ski Club. They quickly fell deeply in love and were married four months later, deciding then to make Annapolis their home. There, they welcomed two beautiful daughters and made many lifelong friends.
Wrenn will be remembered for her fierce love of her family, devotion to helping others through the Optimist Club of Annapolis, and the joy she found in crafting and boardgames. Wrenn’s family and friends will miss her infectious smile, abundant kindness, and her unfailing positivity. Always one to pursue her passions, she was also actively involved with an antique club, her neighborhood garden club, a weekly bible study, and a stamping club.
Wrenn is survived by her beloved husband of 32 years, Thomas Gooding; her daughtersKatie Gardner (Chris) and Nikki Roush (Justin); and her first grandchild, who will arrive later this year. The viewing and memorial service will be held on Monday, March 25, at Hardesty Funeral Home, P.A., 12 Ridgely Avenue, Annapolis, MD, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., respectively. This will be followed by a brief graveside service held in the chapel at Maryland Veterans Cemetery, 1122 Sunrise Beach Road, Crownsville, MD.
