Audis O’Neal Goss, 85, of Monticello, passed away on October 22, 2017 at her home.
She was a retired sales clerk, a cafeteria worker for the Leflore School System, and a member of Second Baptist Church.
Mrs. Goss was born on September 13, 1932 in Itta Bena, Mississippi to the late James Robert O’Neal and Nola Whinery O’Neal.
She was a faithful follower of the Lord Jesus Christ and showed that commitment to others through acts of service. She regularly showered others with food in times of need and shared whatever she had, no matter how meager it might seem. She ran her household and faithfully took care of her husband for 66 years. She loved her family, friends, and neighbors devotedly. Her favorite times were when she was preparing to have company from the O’Neal and Texas families. She loved to cook, crochet, sew and go shopping for her daughter and grandchildren. Her humor and care for others will be deeply missed.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Nathan Goss, and a sister, Elouise Goss.
