Message from Chris Benson, grandson of Norman and Donna Goswick

I am Norman and Donna Goswick's grandson, Christopher.
I just wanted to send mail and let you know that Donna passed away last
Friday, Feb 25th.

She was ill for many months with Pneumonia, and then a fungus infection in
her lungs finally was too much for her.

Her full name was Donna Pauline (Henry) Goswick b. 3/1/23 d.2/25/00, wife of
Norman Floyd Goswick.

She is already missed by everyone who knew her. I hoped you could add her to
your memory page, as she enjoyed meeting you, and always spoke highly of you
and others who so welcomed her at family reunions.
