Renee Gail Gorath Obituary

Renee Gail Gorath, age 61, of Yuba City, CA, passed away peacefully on May 30, 2015.

Renee was the daughter of Harold Moos and Irene Mastel and was born in Sacramento, CA on October 29, 1953.

For nearly a year, Renee had been fighting cancer from a Glioblastoma brain tumor.Renee worked and lived her life, rarely taking time for herself to do the things she wanted; particularly to travel. Renee chose to "Live every day like it is your last" and decided to just let nature take its course and chose "Quality of Life" over "Quantity of Life" for her remaining time. Renee chose to keep a positive attitude and keep up with her passion for jewelry making and other crafts. She spent as much time as possible with her family and is remembered for her humor and her dedication to helping others, even in the face of catastrophic illness. We will treasure her intellect, magnetism and energy always.

Renee is survived by her husband, John Gorath; her children Oliver Acuna Jr., Richard Driskell, Dana Jimenez and Wayne Gorath; her grandchildren Jazmine and Nathan Acuna, Joseph Jimenez, Bryce Gorath, Logan Gorath and Winona Page Driskell and Vance Liam Driskell; her sister Kathleen O'Connell; her brothers Dan Mastel-Moos and Mark Moos; nieces Deanna Danielle, Christine and Samantha Moos and nephew James Moos as well as other family members who will miss her and remember her fondly.

She is preceded in death by her parents, an infant son and her niece Stephanie.

Memorial services will be conducted Monday, June 8, 2015 at 10:00 am at Ullrey Memorial Chapel at 817 Almond St., Yuba City, with Pastor Tim Guerro officiating. Inurment will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Sutter North Hospice.
