Angelina Marie (Garate) Goni – September 24, 2017

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Angelina Marie (Garate) Goni

Angelina Marie (Garate) Goni was born on October 4, 1932 in Smith Valley, NV and entered into rest on September 24, 2017.

Angie moved to Susanville with her mother and 3 siblings when she was 10 years old. She graduated from Lassen High School in 1951. After graduating, Angie attended Chico State University for one year and then transferred to Reno Business College where she completed her studies.

She lived and worked in Reno for a short time before returning back to Susanville. In August 1957, Angie married Richard Goni, her husband of 47 years. She worked in the business office at Lassen High School before starting their family. At this time, Angie took on various roles in the operation of the family-owned St. Francis Hotel.

After selling the longtime family-owned business, Angie and Richard retired in June 2000. Her retirement years were filled with taking care of others; her husband, her grandchildren, and her mother.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Goni and her mother, Rufina Aguirre. She is survived by her 4 children: Michelle Zubillaga, Maurice Goni (Connie), Yvette Neely (Darin) and Jeanette Goni; her two brothers, Julian Garate and Johnny Garate, one sister, Rosemary Murphy, and one step-brother, Paul Aguirre; 8 grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Rosary and funeral services will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on October 21, 2017 at 11:00 am. Burial to follow at Diamond Crest Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Sacred Heart Church Sharing and Caring or Lassen High School Alumni Association.

Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
