    Loved Mrs. Goewey! Rev. Goewey served our church in the 1970’s and she was our choir director! She was one of the kindest, most talented people I have had the pleasure of knowing. She taught a lot of us how to sing God’s praises and she expanded our music program which has kept on to this day. I will always have a special place in my heart for her and Rev. Goewey! Prayers for all of you!
