Burnet County is mourning the loss of historian and preservationist Carole Goble, who passed away Tuesday, Jan. 8.

Goble was born in 1932 and raised in the Prairie Point and Bertram communities, serving with her family as a member of the First Christian Church of Bertram. Goble grew up and developed a love for her county's history, and went on to make a significant impact on Burnet County throughout the years.

Goble's passion for the preservation of Burnet County history stemmed from her own upbringing; her ancestors arrived in the area in 1872, and she came from a family rooted deep in the County's heritage.

Carole graduated from Bertram High School and married Billie Joe Goble, and the two raised their eight children — including Burnet Mayor Christa Goble Bromley — in many places across the country throughout Bill's time in the Marine Corps and returned to Burnet County after 30 years.
