In memory of
Dorothy Frances Gomoll, age 84, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 5, 2017, in her home. On this day, Dorothy was welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven, to be joined with her husband, John R. Gomoll; parents, Kenneth & Anna Arens; brothers, Kenneth "Mike" & Joseph Arens. From her birth in Chicago, IL on December 23, 1932 to her passing on Thursday, Dorothy nourished people around her with love, faith, and songs. After her graduation in 1951from Austin H. S., Dorothy married John "Jack" Gomoll on February 13, 1954. Their life together started in Chicago, followed by a move to Streamwood, IL, where Dorothy volunteered at St. Joseph's Hospital in Elgin. She loved caring for people, family, and friends. The family then moved to Elgin, and finally landing on the Fox River where she last resided. It's there where our best memories have been made with our family and friends alike. Left to honor Dorothy and remember her love are Dorothy's five children: John M. (Lisa) Gomoll, Kenneth J. (Peggy) Gomoll, Mark S. (Ramona) Gomoll, Wendy A. (Bill) Hoover, and Jeffery A. (Paula) Gomoll; eleven grandchildren: Amy (Pat) Doherty, Justen (Jessica) Lyon, Scott (Alicia) Gomoll, Kristen Gomoll, Ashleigh Gomoll, Kasey Gomoll, Hanna Gomoll, Hailee Gomoll, Ross Gomoll, Jennifer Gomoll and John Riley Gomoll; eight step-grandchildren: Janeece Simon, Curtis Hoover, Cassandra (Rory)Updike, Colton Whitman, Austin Hoover, Zane Hoover, Christopher Hoover and Levi Jensen; four great-grandchildren: Vada Barchard, Brylee Gomoll, Piper & James Updike; and three sisters-in-law: Arlene Gomoll, Marion Arens and Janet Arens.
