Following the death of her husband in 1993, Mrs. Gooch made her residence in Troy, near her son and grandchildren. She happily served as a pink lady at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City while there.
She is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, Dr. Allen C. and Dr. Cynthia Gooch of Troy and Rand and Sandy Gooch of Westminster, Colo.; her grandson, Daniel Gooch of Memphis; and two granddaughters, Rebecca Gooch of Spokane, Wash., and Katherine Gooch of Nashville.
