Chorus “What A Day That Will Be”
Monday evening, December 26, 2022, Norma “Jean” Gouge Elliott, 83, Elizabethton, was escorted by the Angels into the presence of Jesus from Signature Health Center. She was also reunited with her moma and sister whom she had so longed to see once again.
Jean was the daughter of the late Harold and Mattie Nidiffer Gouge. She was preceded in death by her sister, Evelyn Hodge, and her three brothers, Duard, Kyle and Wayne Gouge.
She was a member of First Baptist Church, Elizabethton, but had most recently attended Southside Free Will Baptist Church, Elizabethton, until the decline in her health. She loved to have her Bible read to her daily.
The Lord granted her son, Bobby, the desire of his heart by letting him be with his mom, holding her hand and singing her favorite song to her, “What A Day That Will Be.” Just as he finished singing she took a deep breath and was gone to glory.
She is survived by four children, Bobby Miller, of the home, and her caregiver, David (Nancy) Miller, Knoxville, Greg (Carol) White of Wyoming and Kristi (Scott) Noe, Jonesborough; and five grandchildren, Emily (Franky) Covarrubias of Colorado, Lauren and Caroline Miller, Knoxville, Tyler Noe, Jonesborough, and Jacob (Sabrina) Noe, Knoxville. Also surviving are three great-grandchildren, Arya and Carter Covarrubias and Wyatt Noe. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
It was her wish to be cremated and that no service be held.
Bobby would like to give a big shout out of thanks to Debbie Street, Administrator of Signature Health Care, her staff and also the entire nursing staff who so generously showered mom with love and compassion, and I cannot forget housekeeping and the laundry department for their care and concern. Special thanks goes out to Dr. Keith Cook and his nurse Alishia for many years of healthcare and love given to mom.
