Jane B. Goris

NOKOMIS, Fla. — Jane B. Goris, 86, Nokomis, Fla., formerly of Logansport, passed away Thursday, March 13, 2014.

Jane was born to Clark L. Baker and Earlma Peters Baker on Aug. 27, 1927, in Lafayette. She graduated from Lafayette Jefferson High in 1945.

On Feb. 2, 1952, she married Dale E. Goris. They moved to Logansport in 1953, where they raised their family and resided until 1996, when they moved to Florida.

Jane was a member of Tri Kappa, where she held several offices, including president. She was a volunteer for many organizations, including the American Red Cross. She was an avid golfer and a member of Mission Valley Country Club. During her golfing years, she had four holes-in-one and two eagles. Jane loved sports of all kinds and would spend countless hours watching whatever sporting event was on the TV, especially her beloved Boilermakers. She also enjoyed gardening and being outside.

Jane is survived by her husband, Dale; five children, Dr. Jack Goris (Anita) of Lafayette, Nancy Mills (Doug) of Crawfordsville, Dirk Goris (Cheryl) of Dallas, Texas, Dr. James Goris (Lori) of Evansvillle and Dr. David Goris of Brownsburg; and 12 grandchildren, Kyle Goris (Hilari) of Carmel, Suzanne Mills of Marietta, Ohio, Jaclyn Cosantina (Chris) of Chicago, Ill., Jamie Mills (fiancee Casey) of Ankeny, Iowa, Kate Goris of Chicago, Ill., Blake and Adam Goris of Dallas, Texas, and Amy, Matt, Will, Luke and Jake Goris of Evansville.

Preceding her in death were her parents and twin sister, Jean.

A memorial service will be 2 p.m. March 29 at Siesta Key Chapel. A graveside ceremony will be scheduled later in West Lafayette.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Jane’s name to either to Siesta Key Chapel, 4615 Gleason Ave., Sarasota, FL 34242 or Moffitt Cancer Center Foundation, 12902 Magnolia Drive, Tampa, FL 33612.
