Jane Gogol

Jane L.

Jane L. Gogol has been
reunited with Christ Jesus
on Monday, August 19, 2013. Jane’s example of Christ’s unconditional love showed in every capacity of her life and everyone Jane met knew the power of that love.
Jane’s involvement extended throughout the community and her Catholic life. She was a long time member of Christian Life Communities, an active Eucharistic Apostle of the Divine Mercy, had served as an Extra-Ordinary Minister of the Eucharist, worked with programs such as RCIA and Code Blue and volunteered in so many different ways and capacities over her lifetime for her spiritual community.
She enjoyed her many years as a Girl Scout Leader, a School Volunteer and a member of “The Girls”. She spent thousands of countless hours pouring her love into hand made creations; baked, sewn, cross-stitched and crafted, all the while giving all creative credit to Christ. Jane wanted to invite all attendees of services to bring and share their special creative gift from her.
Surviving Jane (and her predeceased husband, Stanley J. Gogol, Jr.) is their living legacy of love – family was everything to this mother and homemaker, extraordinaire: 9 children, Thomas (Linda) Gogol, Ann (Cal) Beach, Mary Rust, Terry (Barb) Gogol, Joan (Gilbert) Martinez, Judy (Mark) VanderHorst, Matthew (Teala) Gogol, Dan (Lee) Gogol, and Paulette (Ray) Van Fleet. Also surviving are their 26 grandchildren; over 50 great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren.
Visitation will be Friday from 2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. with a scripture service beginning at 7:00 p.m. at Hoeflinger-Bolander Funeral Home, 3500 Navarre Avenue, Oregon, OH. Saturday there will be a brief visitation from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., directly followed by the Mass of Christian Burial, both Saturday visitation and mass will be held at All Saints Catholic Church, 628 Lime City Road, Rossford, OH 43460. Memorial contributions may be
directed to All Saints Parish.
