Gooch, Flossie
1934 - 2017
Flossie May (Vincent) Gooch, age 83, of Columbus, passed away September 11, 2017. She was a courageous woman who continued working even after she had her "MRS. degree" so that her family could have the life she wanted for them. She never met an art or craft she wouldn't try nor a set of dishes that couldn't find a place in her busy kitchen. She was involved with the church women's group, Girl Scouts, exercise class at the rec. center, doing her own charity work with "Christmas Cups" for the homeless, and always willing to help someone in need. Opinionated and tenacious with a strong sense of right and wrong, she drove some co-workers crazy. Retirement for her was helping her husband (Ray Arthur Gooch Jr.) through Parkinson's so that he could end in his own home. They celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary before his death in 2008. Beloved daughter of William Jacob Thomas Vincent (deceased) and Ethel Fay (Appler) Vincent (deceased). After the death of her mother in 1943, she was raised with her aunt Ida May (Vincent, Appler) McNichols (deceased) and uncle Oliver Clay Appler (deceased) as a sister to their daughter Sharon Ann (Appler) Leasure . Flossie is preceded in death by her brothers Herman, Manford, and Dale as well as her "sister" Sharon. She is survived by her sons, Ray Arthur Gooch III, and Alan Dean (Sheila) Gooch; sister, Frances Cook; "brother-in-law", Ronald Leasure; nieces, nephews, and cousins. Family will receive friends Thursday, September 14, 2017 beginning at 10 a.m. with funeral service to follow at 12 noon at GRAUMLICH FUNERAL HOME, 1351 S. High St. Pastor Tim Rash officiating. Interment to follow at Alton Cemetery. To view and sign Flossie's online guest book please visit www.graumlichfuneralhome.com
