Claudette Boissoneault's LineageLineage of Aline Sabourin

b. 18 Aug 1925 Springwells (Dearborn), Michigan


My life began in Springwells Michigan where my father and mother moved in 1922. At that time Dearborn was a rural area with West Warren Ave. a dirt road. My mother’s sisters cried, for they feared she was moving so far away from the Detroit area, they would never see her again. I was priviledged to attend the Dearborn Public Schools, a model school district because of the Ford Motor Co. tax money.

After graduating from Fordson High School I attended the UM for 1 year, and Wayne State Univ. for 2 years, intending to become a nurse. In 1946 I meet Edgar Goodwin, who I married 6 Sept 1947, and my career was put on hold.

We have lived all fifty of our married years in the Detroit, Dearborn, Livonia area. I had two successful careers; I was a housewife and raised two fine children, and later returned to college and received a teaching degree in library science.

Now that I am retired I am pursuing my hobby genealogy. I am currently president of the Western Wayne County Genealogical Society.

Flint, Michigan was the birthplace of Edgar Clarence Goodwin b.1 Jul 1920. He attended Catholic and public schools in the Detroit area. He was drafted early into the army during World War II (1941), and spent four years in the South Pacific war zone. Edgar worked as a journeyman pressman for the Detroit Printing Pressmen’s Union #2 for 35 years.

Delphine and Edgar have two children:

1. Keith Edward Goodwin
2. Kim Mary Goodwin
