Marian Goulah (nee Mahoney), 85, from Chaffey's Locks finished her long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s Disease on Saturday March 21, 2020 at Providence Manor in Kingston. Predeceased by her husband, Gerald Goulah (Tweed). Marian is survived by her sister Eleanor Pinsonneault (Raymond) and 3 children: Terry Goulah (Sarah Clarke),Catherine (Robin Carbino), and Mary Elaine (Jeremy Carty). She is also survived by her 6 grandchildren, Jaret Goulah, Corinne and Kiefer Carbino, Michaela, Teresa and Kendra Carty. She will be missed by her many in-laws and nephews/nieces and friends.

Her loving, joyful nature and love for family, faith and music will live on in all who knew her. Marian had a beautiful, storybook childhood in Chaffey’s Locks, where the life lessons and values of her beloved parents were instilled. Marian drew people to her because of her sense of fun and love. She was a collector of people, not of things. Her love for teaching and children propelled her into the education system, where she taught elementary school. Finding her true love, Gerry Goulah rang in a new chapter in her life full of children, friends, faith and good times. Toronto then Kingston became home. After Gerry’s passing, Marian returned home to Chaffey’s and built a home on the family property. After retiring, Marian moved to Westport where the convenience of community was abundant and accessible. This was a golden time for Marian.

We wish to thank all of the amazing friends and family and caregivers who have loved her and supported our family through her final years at the Kingsdale Chateau, The Waterford, and Providence Manor. She often said: “there is so much good in the world, you just have to look for it”.

In regard to global coronavirus pandemic, a celebration of life will occur at a later announced date.

In lieu of flowers, donations could be made to the Joe Chithalen Lending Library (www.joesmill.org/) in Kingston because of her love for music and teaching or to your local Humane Society.

Dear Mary Élaine,
I want to send my condolences to you, your sister and brother, and the rest of your family. Your mother was such a warm, kind, insightful, (& stylish!) colleague and friend and I always think of her when I am in the Chaffey’s Locke area, or near Holy Name School where we worked together as Special Education teachers in the early 90s, long before you and I were on staff at Regi.
It was a privilege to know her.
God bless!
Ann Maureen

Dear Terry, Catherine and Mary Elaine, I am so saddened to hear of your Mother's passing. What an amazing human being. I met Marion In Halifax in the 80's. A guest at my business meeting who joined my Mary Kay unit at the end of the meeting. We liked each other immediately. When your parents moved back to Kingston I told Marion if she wanted to build her business I would come and help her. That led to many many trips to your home. I so enjoyed your parents and you all. It was quite a learning experience for me, watching the fun, the nonsense that made a house a home with so much love. Your mom loved you so much and showed it in so many ways. She was such a joy to be with and I never looked at it as work, but going to Kingston to have fun. We talked about a year ago, and had a great conversation. It was a good time. Please accept my sincere condolences.
Marion has left an amazing legacy.

Sent with Love

Hi Linda, thank you so much for the beautiful note. I have often wondered how you are doing and hope that you and all your family are well. Mom's encounter with you and her journey with Mary Kay Cosmetics was a tremendously positive experience, enriching all our lives. With it came confidence (in general), an improved ability for public speaking and 'stepping outside of her comfort zone'. Her adventure influenced all of us, as we watched her enthusiasm and ability increase. Welcoming people in to our home for makeup parties was a fun time for her, which she did naturally, and truth be told, a great reason to have people in. Your influence was a gift, and the personal notes from Mary Kay Ash after our father died are still coveted here. Thank you again. Love Catherine and family.
