Patricia Anne Crowe Goodheart died at Wake Medical Center on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at the age of 75. Anne was born in Raleigh, NC to Richard Don and Virginia Crowe. Her father worked as a salesman for Swift and Co. and as a result her family moved frequently within NC with a brief time spent in Baltimore, Maryland. While in Baltimore she met her husband, John Goodheart. Upon returning to NC and attending school at UNC-G, Anne worked for DuPont in Kinston, NC. After being married in 1964 they moved to Louisiana and began their family, having two sons, Michael and Daniel, both born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. After moving from Louisiana, to Indiana and eventually back to Raleigh, Anne began working in the substance abuse industry, helping to coordinate activities at a local methadone clinic. She retired in 2007.

Throughout her life Anne identified herself as being a devoted mother and absolutely loved her sons more than life itself. She was so very proud of both of her son's many accomplishments and cherished time spent with them. She enjoyed spending every minute with them and sharing in their lives. Anne also loved being a grandmother to Kennedy, Chase and Emerson. She loved getting "sugar" from their sweet kisses, watching their dance shows, sporting activities and gymnastic events, but most of all just spending time with them and being a grandmom.

Anne was also a devoted friend to many. She had many different groups of friends including her bible study friends, her work friends, and of course her coffee drinking friends. She loved to socialize with her friends and spend time with them as often as possible. Additionally, Anne was an avid reader and absolutely loved to read, often reading multiple books within a week. She also loved technology and was quite savvy with her smart phone and tablet. She would love to text and send emojis back and forth with her grandchildren.

Anne was the proudest and gained the most happiness from her children and family. She really identified herself above all else as being a mom, and she was excellent at just that. She was always there for her children, always ready to sacrifice her needs for theirs, and loved them unconditionally. She will be sadly missed by all.

Anne was preceded in death by her parents, Richard Don and Virginia Crowe, sister Ginger Rogers, and nephew Richard Todd Rogers.

She is survived by her sons, Michael and Daniel; daughter-in-law, Annette and grandchildren, Kennedy, Chase and Emerson; niece, Aven Burt her husband Mark Burt and their children, Foster and Smith; and brother-in-law, Reginald Rogers.

Services will be held on Sunday May 21 at 3pm at Hayes Barton United Methodist Church with a reception to follow in the church.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Triangle Literacy Council, 916 West Morgan Street, Raleigh, NC 27603.
