Therese Goodwin

September 18, 1959 — November 27, 2021

Perry, OK

Therese Louise (Hamm) Goodwin, 62, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma was born to Carl Berton and Marjorie

Anna (Wald) Hamm in Perry, Oklahoma, as the youngest of 5 children, on September 18, 1959. She went

to be with her heavenly father on Saturday, November 27, 2021, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Therese attended Perry High School and earned her high school diploma in 1978. She fondly

remembered her school life and often talked about her cheerleading days. Therese was crowned Perry

Wrestling Queen her senior year of high school.

After graduation she continued her education at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, where she was

a member of the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. While at OU, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion

Merchandising, graduating in 1982.

Therese was employed as a retail manager, in the fashion industry, at Chico’s women’s clothing store in

Oklahoma City. She was incredibly talented and had many interests. She could fix anything around the

house, a true handy woman. She knew how to hang sheetrock, lay ceramic tile, and was never afraid to

get her hands dirty. She loved gardening and expressed her artistry through creations from any arts and

craft supplies that were available. Though she had gardening tools, all she really needed to get anything

done in the yard was a kitchen knife and a fork.

Therese was an avid fan of her alma mater’s football team, and especially enjoyed attending OU games

in Norman as well as traveling to any location to cheer on her Sooners. Even if she could not make it to a

game, the game would always be on TV at her house. She even listened to the Sports Animal on the

radio in her car religiously. Therese’s family will forever remember her for her free and loving spirit, and

vigorous sense of humor; she called it slapstick comedy; we call it being Therese. She was a wonderful

mother and grandmother, always doting over her family. She was a lifelong member of the Catholic

Church and was happiest when in service to other people. She truly had a servant’s heart. Therese was

always smiling, hardworking, dedicated to her family, and well loved by all who knew her.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory her daughter Jessica Williams and her husband Aaron of

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, son William Goodwin of Edmond, Oklahoma, son Isaiah Goodwin of

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, grandsons Junior Warner, London Warner, and Sincere Williams. Her partner

Keith Kennedy, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Her sister Carla Brand and her husband Dennis, brother

Richard Hamm and his wife Vanja, brother John Hamm and his wife Debbie, and brother-in-law Bob Ahn.

Nieces and nephews Wade Brand and his wife Amy, Dennette Summerlin and her husband J.T, Todd

Brand and his wife Jennifer, Reid Hamm, Ryan Hamm, Ramsey Hamm and his wife Taylor, Abby Hamm,

Charles Ahn, Jeffery Ahn, Nathan Ahn; and her close friend Barbara Brooke and her husband Jim.

She was preceded in death by her son Patrick James Goodwin of Edmond, Oklahoma, parents Carl

and Marjorie Hamm of Perry, Oklahoma, sister Anita Hamm of Perry, Oklahoma, sister-in-law Helen

Ahn of College Station, Texas, and mother-in-law Bonnie Goodwin of College Station, Texas.
