Florence Delores Goff, 91, passed away on Saturday at Home Harbor of Racine. She was born in Kenosha in May of 1927, the daughter of the late Stella (nee: Szyszlo) and Ignatius Paczkowski.
Florence was raised and attended schools in Kenosha. She met and married the love of her life, the late Robert J. Goff in 1950. After juggling raising a family and a career in the medical records field, Florence and Bob retired to the St. Pete’s area of Florida in the mid-eighties. They returned to Wisconsin in 2003 to spend quality time with family and meet their eleven great grandchildren. Florence was a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who will be dearly missed.
She is survived by her sons, Thomas (Lorie) Goff, Dennis (Renee) Goff, David (Barb) Goff; grandchildren, Angela (Todd) Sikowski, Alex (Adam) Dahlstrom, Tyler (Taylor) Goff, Arthur (Melissa) Goff, Walter Goff; great-grandchildren, Kendall, Payton, Brooke, Aaron, Jude, Deklan, Monroe, Elizabeth, Hannah, Caleb and Emma; sister-in-law, Loretta Goff; other relatives and dear friends. In addition to her parents and husband Florence was preceded in death by her daughter Marie and siblings Mary Sarafinas, Joe and Charles Paczkowski.
Relatives and friends may meet with the family at St. Lucy’s Catholic Church on Monday from 11 a.m. until 12 p.m. with a memorial Mass to follow at 12 p.m. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to remember Florence in a special way may direct memorials to St. Jude’s Children Hospital or St. Lucy’s Catholic Church.
The Goff family would like to extend our deepest appreciation to the staff at Home Harbor of Racine and the staff at Grace Hospice for the great care that was given to Florence.
