Goldie grew up in Pawhuska and graduated from Pawhuska High School in 1937, where, as a lifelong music lover, her favorite class was choir. Two days after her graduation, she and R.F. "Shorty" Crume eloped to Blackwell, OK, where they were married by her longtime Methodist minister. Goldie and Shorty lived in Pawhuska until 1942 where two of their children, Carl Luther and Ruth Marie, were born. Shorty's employer, the Love Bottling Company, moved the family to Bartlesville where sons Donald Gene and Burt Martin were born. Goldie would walk her "four little kids" from their home on Quapaw Avenue to the bottling company on Osage Street to visit their father.
In 1952, the family moved to a farm in Okesa where Goldie quilted with family and friends, canned the family garden vegetables, churned butter and made cottage cheese from the dairy cows, volunteered as the voting inspector, and collected Depression glass. She refurbished her home, enjoyed visits from her grandchildren, and entertained relatives and friends. After her children were grown, she traveled with Shorty around the Midwest and West and wintered in Zapata, TX.
She was preceded in death by her husband, R.F. Crume, daughter Ruth Marie, her parents, and her eight siblings.
