Kristi Gochoel: Born From the Stars
This section includes both obituaries and memories. Honoring our loved ones who have died does not end immediately after their passing. We recognize that… so we’re extending our obituary section to include individuals who may have left a long time ago. If you want to remember someone who is gone, either recently or longer ago, please send a photo and a few sentences to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us why you would like to honor the person–is it their birthday, the date of their passing or some other date of significance to you? Pet remembrances are also welcome.
Kristi was born from the stars and landed in a community that helped her heal and showed her love.
“We touched each other in meaningful ways. It was a beautiful experience of love. Thank you all.”
Her family would like to share a recent poem of Kristi’s as she continues to lead us on a path of love and light:
“Weep weep calls
a toad from the water’s edge
and I do.
If grief can be a doorway
to love then
Let us all weep for
the world we are
breaking apart, so we
can love it back to
There will be a celebration of Kristi on Saturday, October 21st, 2 PM at Beginnings Octagon. Appetizers and desserts are welcome to attend.
If you would like to help Kristi’s longtime partner, Barbara, during this time of emotional and financial transition, you can donate to Barbara Penny account # 1443 at the Community Credit Union of Southern Humboldt, or online at GoFundMe.
