Isla Fawn Goodling Long

September 25, 1925 — March 30, 2023

Isla Fawn Goodling Long, age 97, of Ogden, Utah, received her call to Heaven on March 30, 2023 at approximately 5:00 am, with her family by her side. She passed away peacefully in her home. Her death was the result of congestive heart failure. Born on September 25, 1925, in Elizabethtown, PA, Isla was the sixth of fourteen children born to the late Charles E. and Mary A. (Krissinger) Goodling.


She grew up on East High Street in Elizabethtown and attended Elizabethtown High School. She was a welder during World War II and worked at Continental Press in Elizabethtown. She married the late Joseph Henry Long on November 30, 1946, at the Elizabethtown Church of the Brethren. She was a wife and a mother to the couple’s five children as well as a devout Christian. She accompanied her husband to Ogden, Utah, in 1965 where she worked for the Internal Revenue Service.


Isla will be lovingly missed by her daughters Nadine Bonnie Long Roberts (Larry) of Haymarket, VA; Judy Ann Long of Ogden, UT; sons, Joseph Henry Long II; Dennis Michael Long of Layton, UT, and daughter-in-law Linda Fae Long Poole (Dick) of Ogden, UT.

The life and times of Isla will be affectionately remembered by her sister Lois Minerva Conley (Robert) of Elizabethtown, PA; her brothers Charles (Junie) Goodling Jr; Albert (Bert) Goodling; and James Goodling (Bonnie), all of Elizabethtown, PA.
