Ms. Goss was born in Peoria, Ill., on Dec. 31, 1940, to Henry and Doris Carlberg.

Her family said her favorite pastime during childhood was picking blackberries with her mother and siblings.

She spent many years working for San Bernardino County in California. During her retirement, she moved to Wisconsin to be closer with her family.

Ms. Goss used her skills as a seamstress when she started a home business, RIP Patches by Janet Goss, to bring peace to those who lost their loved ones.
