Dawn Goff

Dawn Lanell Goff
November 1, 1931 - July 16, 2013
Born Dawn LaNell Doane 1 Nov. 1931 to Chauncey and Sadie Doane (Rupert, Idaho), LaNell Goff died on the 16th of July, 2013 (Nampa, Idaho). LaNell leaves behind her husband, Roland Goff, and her 10 surviving children: Teresa Pierce (Fred), Gary Goff (Beth), Rolane Gibbons, Steven Goff (Melanie), Alan Goff (Helga), Leon Goff (Staci), Alecia Goff Harris, Lynette Doelling (Jed), Dana Goff (Erin), and Melissa Jorgensen (Chad). LaNell is preceded in death by two of her children: LaVon and Gina. She is also preceded in death by her grandson Travis Jay Gibbons. The descendants of LaNell and Roland Goff also include 35 grandchildren and 36 great grandchildren. Roland and LaNell would have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary the 18th of July 2013. LaNell's life was all about service to God and family: parents, brothers and sisters, husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, friends, fellow church members, and neighbors.
LaNell's family and friends will gather from around the West to celebrate her life and mourn her separation from them at the Roosevelt LDS Chapel, 11288 W. Roosevelt Ave., Nampa, Idaho. The viewing will be at 8:45-9:15 Saturday morning at the church where the arrangements are being made by Zeyer Funeral Home. The funeral service will start at 9:30 a.m. Interment will follow at the Minidoka Acequia Rupert Cemetery, Rupert, Idaho. In the hope and faith of resurrection and reunion when broken and fragmented lives and bodies will be restored and perfected by that God who is our true home, the Goff family invites the attendance of those who knew and loved LaNell. The family thanks Journey's Hospice for their devoted and kind service to LaNell and Roland during the period of her lingering death from Alzheimer's.
