Mary "Gogo" Golden Piercy

On September 27, 2021 Mary Golden Piercy, known affectionately as Gogo, went to be with Jesus whom she loved so much and sang one of her favorite songs about, Jesus Loves Me. Born on December 27, 1931 to Norman and Bessie Grant, Gogo spent most of her life in an old yellow home on Main Street in Old Fort. She was known for her lemon-flavored sweet tea, her Sunday afternoon dinners, her home open to everyone, and for calling everyone she met “honey.” She was a member of Grace Community Church, serving faithfully in the preschool.


She was preceded in death by her husband Jack Piercy, her brother Guy Grant, Jr and her daughter-in-law Pat Piercy. Left to cherish her memory are her sister Betty Ann Crawford, her brother Joseph (Freddy) Grant, her daughter Libby Piercy, her son Jack (Bunny) Piercy, 6 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren and a host of nephews, nieces, former coworkers at Ethan-Allen, and the many young people who ate at her table and enjoyed her simple, sweet accepting company.

A worship service to celebrate her life and her Jesus will be held on Sunday, October 3 at Grace Community Church at 3 pm with Pastor Jerry Lewis officiating. The family will receive friends at 2 pm. Burial will follow at Old Fort City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, because Gogo loved kids so much, we think she would love for you to give a gift to Grace Community Church Preschool’s scholarship fund.

Guestbook

Libby, Wendy, Freddy & Family, I have never forgotten the Sunday afternoons (& sometimes Fri. Sat. ) always a wonderful peaceful place to be stopping in to visit with "Goldie" & her precious family. The talks, laughs & visits always helped make for a better week. I will always appreciate being treated like family & a long close friend. I can just hear her singing now in Heaven with her beautiful crown fitting perfectly around her always teased, sprayed, nails colored, even dressed to perfection. Thank you for including my daughter & myself . Have never stopped looking over at the beautiful yellow "Goldie's" home with all the wonderful memories the few times I am ever in that area.

Libby and family I deepest sympathies go out to your and your family. My childhood would have never been the same without Goldie and Jack and your family be a big part of it. I just remembering always being so welcomed at your home in Old Fort every summer and Goldie always being so welcoming. All the time I spent up there with all my cousins, aunts and uncles and that kitchen being the meeting place for it all. I can still see that kitchen in my mind everyday. This will be a sad time for a little while but my joy is knowing I will see her again in heaven. I pray for peace and comfort during this time.

Wendy & family, my thoughts and prayers go out to each of you. My greatest memories of Gogo were of when we would get together and sing as a family and sweet Gogo would be there listening and as we would start to leave her taking my hands in hers and saying "I love you honey, come back and see me." Love you guys so much.

Goldie was precious. Yes. She always had coffee for anybody that dropped by. Her kitchen smelled of delicious coffee......and i didnt drink coffee as a child but I knew it was good because Goldie served it. She always made me feel so warm and welcome. I was from out of town but loved my cousins.......Libby and Bunny. The house had a front porch swing that made me love to swing........big! My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love to you all......Ann Norton Monk
