It is with great sadness that I share with you the passing of a friend. My time with Judge Susan Goldie revealed a great public servant who was dedicated to her job and the people of Xenia. Rest in peace.
Greene County Municipal Court judge, Susan E. Goldie, passed away Sunday after a brief illness.
Goldie was elected municipal court judge in November of 1995 and served two terms (1996-2007) after taking over for Judge Raymond Hieber who served a total of 18 years from 1978 until 1995. Michael Murry defeated Goldie in November of 2007.
Most recently, Goldie was working in the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office dealing with delinquent tax issues. County Prosecutor Steve Haller remembered the former judge as a dedicated public servant.
“I have know Susan since 1978 and she cared passionately for her family and friends,” Haller said. “She was a great public servant and we are going to miss her here.”
Early reports suggest that Goldie had been diagnosed with pneumonia and after undergoing a cat scan, it was revealed that she had a blockage in an artery and a stent was inserted. While recuperating at home in Bellbrook, she passed away. Her funeral arrangements are being handled by the Conner & Koch Funeral Home in Bellbrook.
