Mildred Faustina (Butler) Goff, 97, passed away on October 20, 2019 at The Knox Center in Rockland. Mildred was born on January 29, 1922 to Vic Jackson Butler and George W. Butler, Jr. and grew up and attended schools in Rockport until 1937. She graduated from Union High School in 1939 and graduated from Gates Business School in 1941.

She married Elmer F. Goff in 1941 and in 1945, Mildred and Elmer bought the Robbins Block on Union Common and ran a patent drug and variety store. In 1962, Mildred and Elmer built Elmer’s Restaurant in Union and Mildred operated the store from 1962 to 1972 while Elmer operated the restaurant. In 1972, they sold the Robbins Block and Mildred and Elmer worked in the restaurant together until 1983. Elmer’s Restaurant was an iconic fixture in the mid coast area, serving home style meals as well as pies, pastries and baked goods made daily on the premises. Elmer’s Restaurant employed many people in the area over the years, and numerous family members, including Mildred’s mother and daughter, Jan.

Mildred was an active member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Eastern Star and People’s United Methodist Church, especially the shawl ministry. Mildred loved spending time with her family, gardening, playing cards, reading, watching the Red Sox, traveling, baking, quilting, knitting and crocheting all with a precise attention to detail and particular perfection. She was well loved by all, always quick with a smile and kind word and had a dry, witty sense of humor.

Mildred is survived by her sister, Ruth Leonard of Union, brother Howard Butler of Union, son, Frederick (Ted) Goff and his wife Patricia Goff, daughter Jan Wentworth and her husband Harold Wentworth, grandchildren Tanya (Goff) Richmond of Hooksett, NH, Eric Goff of Monmouth, Jason Wentworth of Danby, NY, Jonathan Wentworth of Enfield, NY, 8 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

She is predeceased by her parents, Vic and George Butler, Jr., brothers, Clarence (Buddy) and Royce and her beloved husband Elmer to whom she was married for 59 years. She will be dearly missed.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. to be held at the People’s United Methodist Church, 21 Depot Street, in Union, with Pastor Elizabeth Bailey-Mitchell officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the People’s United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 105, Union, ME 04862 or Union Historical Society, P.O. Box 154, Union, ME 04862.

Arrangements are entrusted to Hall’s of Waldoboro, 949 Main Street, Waldoboro . To extend online condolences please visit

Our condolences to Millie's family. Millie was a cheerful person who impacted everyone with her smile. We know she will be missed greatly as your family gathers for holidays and reunions. As her quality of life became painful, we know she is in a better place but our thoughts are with all of you that remain and miss her here. Anita and Travis Brown

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

My Aunt Jan, being the daughter of Millie and Elmer Goff, meant that when my Uncle Bruddie Wentworth married the love of his life, I was sooo impressed - he had married someone who was the daughter of someone I perceived as rich, famous and well-known. For as long as I can remember, many of my memories included driving by or getting to stop and eat at Elmer's Restaurant right on Route 17 in Union, Maine - the place to be. As I grew older and the Goff's retired and sold their restaurant, I especially got to know Millie much, much better. After Elmer passed and Millie moved in with Jan and Bruddie, we would stop by for a family reunion or just to say our hellos and truly learn the type of 'rich' the Goffs were - rich with friends, rich with kindness and rich with the love of family - and our lives were always made richer by receiving one of Millie's beautiful smiles.

Love, Rhondie & Family, Ve & Family and Wendy & Family
