Jenelle Goller

Dec 23, 1935 - Feb 14, 2024

location-icon

Durham, NC

Jenelle Goller read the last page of her book and closed the cover on February 14, 2024. Over the years, she fought and won many health battles with courage, grace and unwavering optimism. She was at peace that this was her time. Jenelle is survived by her husband of 62 years, John Howard Goller; sons Scott (Lisa, deceased 2022), Randal (Sandra) and Jeff (Leigh); and grandsons Bryce, Ty, Henry, Marshall and Slade. She was preceded in death by her parents, Younger and Nell Snead; and brother Younger Snead, Jr.Jenelle lived happily surrounded by her men and boys, and the girls they brought into the family. Though she was petite compared to the Goller men and women, her stature in the family was the tallest and strongest pillar that supported them all. She was affectionately known as “Mama Pooh” to her sons, “Tutter” to her nephews (Tripp and Sam) and niece (Dawn), and “Nana” to her five grandsons. She loved her family and friends completely, joyfully, and thankfully.Jenelle grew up in Raeford, North Carolina. She attended Greensboro College, earning a bachelor’s degree she used to become a teacher. Jenelle met John in Virginia Beach, VA, where she worked at as a 5th grade teacher (and at her best with the boys!), and where he was stationed with the Navy. She became an officer’s wife in 1962, and a mother in 1965, continuing the thus far unbroken five-generation chain of all male Gollers. They moved several times among Virginia, Massachusetts and North Carolina. Jenelle was happiest in her native Tar Heel State, and most especially in Topsail Beach, where she and John retired. She devoted her life to caring for her family, laughing with her friends, giving generously of her time and attention, reading good books, and soaking in the sun at Topsail Beach.Jenelle’s life and legacy will be remembered in the ways she enjoyed her life, and taught others to appreciate those things, too:- Drive a pretty, flashy, sporty convertible when you’re young. Station wagons, motor homes and mini vans will come, and it’s hard to go back to the convertible after joint replacements. Be sure to ride through town with your hair blowing and the music blasting loud. That feeling of freedom will last a lifetime.- Get up in time to watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee, preferably from a porch swing. Pause to watch the sunset, especially if it’s over Topsail Sound. Let nature’s beauty remind you to keep your eyes on the horizon and looking forward to what comes next.- Read lots of good books. Choose ones that are sweet or silly for the grandkids; snuggle up with them so they know reading together is an act of love. Also choose ones for yourself that are suspenseful or steamy so you can lose hours in the pages. It helps pass the time in waiting rooms and on rainy days. Wear out a few pairs of reading glasses, keep your mind sharp, and your heart racing- Take a nap…every day. It might be a guilty pleasure, but it will refresh weary joints and muscles, and revive your energy to keep up with five grandsons!- Go out to eat. Travel across the country and around the world enjoying a variety of good food. Share the meals with friends, family and sometimes strangers. Be sure to order dessert because life needs sweet things as often as possible.- Love a dog. Snuggle up for nap time, feed them table scraps (unapologetically) and gently scratch them until they drift off to sleep in your lap. That kind of companionship warms your heart and feeds your soul.- Be the best mom you can be, even to those who aren’t your own children. All children are special and deserve to be hugged, taught, read to, corrected, and accepted. Love and mother them all, they will love you more for it.- Be a cheerleader. Go to all the soccer games, scout events, marching band competitions and basketball games. Get excited about all the good news, and offer encouragement when news is discouraging. Everyone will remember how you believed in them and wanted great things to happen.- When you have to, put your foot down. A gal has gotta know when to be the boss so the guys know who’s really in charge.- Go fishing. Get in the outdoors and drown a few worms. Learn to drive a boat so you can get to the best honey holes, and go home when you’re ready. Learn from your dad and pass it on to the next generations.- Keep a clipboard by your chair, make lists, and try to check a few things off every day.- Marry a good man and love him with your whole heart. Laugh with him, make a home with him, raise a family with him, enjoy great friends with him and be a great friend to him, appreciate his kind and generous spirit, overlook his quirks, retire to a beautiful island to watch sunsets, and lose yourself in being part of the most wonderful life together.Jenelle was with us for 88 years. There’s never enough time with the ones we love the most. She lived the kind of life that leaves us wishing for one more page in her book…The family will celebrate Jenelle’s life and impact with a private ceremony later this spring.In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her memory to the Jimmy V Foundation, the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center, Share the Table NC, or a charity close to your heart.The family is being assisted by Clements Funeral & Cremation Services, Inc. in Durham.
