      Goldie Bindschadler

      Goldie Krebill Bindschadler died May 21, 2008 at a local care facility in Fort Collins, Colorado. Cremation will be conducted and services are pending.

      Goldie Ellen Krebill was born on May 10, 1906 on a family farm between Donnellson and Franklin (Lee County) Iowa to Joseph and Selma (Weber) Krebill. She was the youngest of the twelve Krebill children.

      Goldie completed 8th grade in Franklin and since someone would have had to drive her to Donnellson to continue school and since no one had gone beyond 8th grade in her family, she ended her public schooling. She did however attend Mennonite schools in the summer where she spoke German, as at home, to her fellow classmates and teachers.

      Goldie's mother died when she was 13. In her twenties, and because of her ill health, her doctor recommended that she move to Loveland, Colorado to live with her oldest brother, Daniel Krebill. She attended and then received a certificate from a Commercial School in Fort Collins which allowed her to be a legal secretary.

      Goldie, also known as 'Blackie' met Harold Bindschadler at the young adults group at First Presbyterian Church in Loveland and married Harold on March 29, 1936 at the church parsonage. After their wedding, Harold accepted a job with the US Geological Survey on a mobile survey crew. In this nomadic life, they moved thirteen times in one year. Their travels took them to New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, North Dakota, Montana, Utah and several towns in Colorado before living in Torrington, Lander, Casper and finally Laramie, Wyoming.

      Goldie worked as a live-in housekeeper and nanny for several families in Loveland and Fort Collins before her marriage. She later worked as a legal secretary for the late Waldo Riffenburgh, after whom the elementary school is named for, in Fort Collins. She rented rooms to college students whom she always treated like family.

      Goldie was a member of Chapter AlPEO, EX-EX Faculty Wives, a life member of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees and Laramie Plains Museum Association, the Wyoming Wool Growers Auxilary and Mother's Club of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Goldie's volunteer legacy included serving as Blue Bird Leader, on the Campfire Girls Council, and Horizon Club Advisor. She received the Luther Gulick Award, the highest award in Camp Fire Girls. She served in many position at the First United Methodist Church in Laramie including Sunday School Teacher, Superintendent of the Primary Sunday School, Superintendent of Cradle Roll, as Trustee, Publicity Chair, Finance Chair and other various offices in United Methodist Women. She held various offices in the PTA. She logged over six thousand hours in the gift shop and information desk for the Hospital Auxiliary. Goldie was a a member of the Laramie Women's Club for fifty- three years. She was awarded lifetime membership with the Salvation Army Board, was nominated for Wyoming Mother of the Year and then served as chairwoman of the Wyoming Mother's Search committee for seven years. With Harold, she delivered Meals on Wheels for many years to clients much younger than she and received with Harold, the Lions Community Service Award. Goldie helped out with the Courtesy Clothes Closet. In her free time, she accompanied Harold to horseshoe tournaments and would volunteer as scorekeeper. They were avid Cowboys ( University of Wyoming) supporters and held season tickets for university football and basketball games.

      Goldie was preceded in death by her late husband, Harold, son-in-law, Ed Pexton, eleven brothers and sisters, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is survived by her son Darryl Bindschadler (and Helga) of Cheyenne, Wyoming; daughter, Jeannie Pexton of Fort Collins; six grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
