On Monday, September 14, 2020, Sherrilyn Marie Goss (Sherri to everyone who knew her) passed away at the age of 73.
Sherri was born March 20, 1947 in Fort Collins, Colorado to Kenneth and Doris Rust. She attended Fort Collins High School and took classes at Colorado State University until December 19, 1966 when she married Donald R. Goss. They raised one daughter, Annette.
Sherri had a passion for the arts gained from her mother. She brushed several paintings as illustrations for a book of poetry written by a local Orlando poet. She also spent many hours at her sewing machine where she created nicu quilts for the babies at Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando as well as knitted baby hats for Arnold Palmer Hospital through the Humble Hands group at First Orlando Baptist Church. Her creative and adventurous spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Sherri was preceded in death by her parents, Kenneth and Doris Rust. She is survived by her husband Don, her daughter Annette, her brother Bart, sister in law Jane, brother in law Gary, son in law Brian Nelson, and grandson Tannin.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made in her memory to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance, 14 Pennsylvania Plaza, Suite 2110, New York, NY 10122.
To all that knew her, caring and friendship are the things that she would like everyone to remember her by. The family asks that instead of a memorial service, that you reflect on the vibrant caring person that She was.
The family is being cared for by CONRAD AND THOMPSON FUNERAL HOME 511 Emmett St Kissimmee, FL 34741
