Kathleen Claire Goesch-Burton

February 28, 1953 ~ August 28, 2023 (age 70) 70 Years Old


Kathleen Goesch-Burton was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and
aunt. She left us to be with her creator on August 28, 2023.  She is
survived by her husband Randy Melvin Burton, her daughters, Kristen
Claire Burton, Shannon Eileen Burton- Harp, and her son Heath Dennis Burton, her son in law Nick Harp and her daughter in law Jackie Peacock. She was born to Gerald William Goesch and Dorothy Claire Braaten-Goesch in Ceres, California on February 28th, 1953 and is the
oldest of four children. She also leaves six nieces and two nephews.

Kathleen met Randy at her sister’s wedding in 1975 and was set up on a
blind date with Randy by her future father-in-law, Melvin Burton.
Melvin told Randy that Kathleen (who was an artist) needed assistance
in buying a camera. After talking for a couple hours, the two found
they had been set up. They started a relationship, fell in love and
were married on July 17,1976 in the Armstrong National Redwood Forest.
Randy and Kathleen resided in Concord, California for the next 47
years and raised their family. They loved to travel with their kids
and would take them on many trips to National Parks throughout the
years, including Yosemite National Park, Mt Diablo, Lassen National
Park, Mt. Shasta, Burney Falls to name a few. Kathleen loved to travel
to the giant redwoods to celebrate her anniversary with Randy.

Kathleen will be remembered in her works of art as a portrait artist,
painter, graphic designer, silk screener, crocheter, knitter, and
seamstress. She was an amazing cook, baker, canner and loved sharing
her culture through her food. She was devoted to her husband, children
and family and would put nothing else before them. Kathleen was a
loving mother to everyone she would meet. She was involved in the
community through her church, her children’s schools, local band
classes, singing in the Church Choir and the Scottish Country Dancing
community.  She will be deeply missed by everyone who had the pleasure
of getting to know her. Kathleen was a devout Christian and served the
Lord. In her final months, she found her strength in His word and
never let her faith in His purpose for her waiver.

“Those we hold most dear never truly leave us...

They live on in the kindnesses they showed, the comfort they shared
and the love they brought into our lives.

Thank you, Father, for the gift of memory that allows me to hold close
the ones I love even after they are with you. Amen”

Research Hospital on her behalf.
