In memory of
September 9, 1941 - January 3, 2021 Born and raised in Pasadena, CA, she was the eldest of four daughters of Norman Leffingwell Goss and Jean Armour Ericson. After graduating from Westridge School, she devoted her life to music and food. She started a successful catering business, Heather's Affairs, and later opened two restaurants, The Gourmet Goose & The Heather. She was a president of the Orange County Philharmonic; served on the Corona Del Mar Baroque Music Festival's board for many years; and on the Newport Harbor Lutheran Church's council, where she also sang in the choir. In 1990 she joined the Vox Feminae singing group and toured with them in Europe. Heather found joy in the great outdoors, hiking and biking the California Coast. Even when Parkinson's began to take its toll, she never lost her courage and faith. We hear her voice, we see her smile, she is with us still. Heather is survived by an extended family, including her sisters Shana, Devon and Briar, and many nieces and nephews.
