Sara Mae Martin Goff Judd, 95, of Columbia, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Tuesday, November 1, 2016, surrounded by her loving family.

She was a Civil Service Employee 42 years. She worked in the Torpedo Plant during World War II in Alexandria, Virginia. When she moved back to Columbia she was employed at Fort Jackson Quarter Master Laundry as an office clerk and eventually worked her way up to become a supervisor. Her Christian Faith was a constant in her life. She provided her family with a living example of obedience to God’s word and unconditional love. She was a kind, gentle, woman with a loving spirit. To know her was to love her. She loved music, especially Gospel and Country. She never took music lessons but could sit down at the piano or organ and play whatever song was in her head at that time.

Surviving were her children, Dianne Holthaus, Everett “Bubba” Goff, Jr. both of Hopkins, and Nadine Bradley (George) of Columbia; seven grandchildren, Ward (Allyson), Jason (Dawn), Leanne (Chris), Lynette (Mike), Everette (Serandy), Jerry (Sherry), Angie (Mike), and Michael; eleven great-grandchildren, Declan, Michaela, Mackenzie, Nicholas, David, Katelyn, Hannah, Seth, Kit, Chase, and Cameron; and last, but not least, her faithful four-legged companion, Rosie.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her first husband, Oliver E. Goff; her second husband, Almond C. Judd; sisters, Elizabeth Tucker, Emma Spires, Mattie Higgins, and Edna Poe; and brothers, Fletcher Martin and Neze Martin.
