She was born Sept. 8, 1927, to Arthur and Delia (Moody) Hams. She graduated from Kendall High School. Goldie was joined in marriage to Vernard Sorenson on April 25, 1945, at the Parsonage of the Methodist Church of Elroy. While she lived in the Elroy area, she worked hard for the canning company in Hillsboro, then for Kroeger Grocery until they closed.
