Julia Anne "Julie" Goff, loving daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend passed away suddenly on May 23, 2013 in Elko, Nevada. She was a cancer survivor and championed the fight against cancer.
Julie was born in Glendale, California to Barbara Jayne and Orville A. Wahrenbrock and moved to Reno, NV in 1962 where she completed her education and began a long career in the dental and legal fields.
She was a loving daughter who took her mother Barbara into her home with the complete and faithful support of her family. Last year, Barbara moved to The Lodge in Carson City and Julie continued as her primary caregiver, visiting her mother several times each week.
Julie loved her family deeply. She enjoyed working in the yard, tole painting, preserving and sharing things from Bob's bountiful garden. She was an excellent cook, an avid reader and she enjoyed a glass of wine with friends.
Her one regret was not finishing her college degree as she was a lifelong learner.
Julie was preceded in death by her father Orville A. Wahrenbrock and the love of her life Robert "Bob" Goff. She is survived by her mother, Barbara Jayne Gilbert of Carson City; her brothers, Larry Wahrenbrock, Jon Wahrenbrock, Andy Gilbert and Bruce Gilbert; sisters Jayne Putman and Marcia Dworak; numerous aunts, nieces, nephews and grandchildren.
