ObituaryShare A Memory
Our Mom, Dorothy Margaret Gossett passed on October 29, 2018. She was born on May 23, 1923 to Bill and Lettie Headley in Peshastin, WA. In 1940, Dorothy and Charles Olen Gossett were married in Yakima. To their union, a son Bob materialized and one year later, Rich was added to make our family of four.
 
Mom was a strong but gentle woman and a very hard worker, from hop ranches to cattle ranches and a stint of being fruit tramps for several years, where it took me, Bob, to being 14 years old before I could pick as many cherries as she. Mom also worked for a time at The Golden Wheel Restaurant in Yakima.
 
Mom loved flowers and the color purple. In her later years, Mom was known as the Queen Bee of Shopping Sprees.
 
Mom loved her granddaughters, Lori Medley, Jodi Smith, Carole Neelans and grandson, Alan. Also, grandchildren, Brett, Brian, Brandon and Bree Gossett in addition to a number of great grandchildren.
 
Mom was preceded in death by her husband, Charlie, sisters, Maxine Williams, Patty Inkpen, and brother, Kenny Headley. 
 
A special thank you to the staff at Crescent Health Care for your kindness and caring for our Mom.
 
We love you Mom. A heartfelt thank you to you for all those years of hard work, sacrifice and devotion to your family. 
 
At her request, there will be no funeral services.
