May the Lord hold all of you in the palm of His hand & give you comfort & strength in the days ahead.
I have met Mrs Gosko, but didn’t know her personally. I do know many of her boys though & know that they were raised in a great family. I am deeply sorry for your loss. Everything I have ever heard about her was that she was a lovely person. I know that this family has touched me very deeply in my life. Please know that I am lifting you all up in prayer during this difficult time & in the days ahead. Blessings!

Mom was “mom” to countless others besides just her own children. She always looked for someone to encourage, care for, or cook for. I loved waking up to the smell of her French toast! And on Sunday evenings she would make grilled cheese sandwiches and homemade chocolate shakes. Many of the grandchildren would walk up to her house after school and she would provide food and love to them. Mom never took up a hobby because loving and caring for her family was her hobby. She had the patience of Job…raised eight children and never raised a hand to any of us. She had quite a sense of humor too…liked to pull little pranks on people (I believe her niece, Sharon, encouraged her!) Mom and dad taught us to respect other people and their property, taught us to turn the other cheek and “let things go”, forgive and not hold a grudge, be kind and compassionate, but most of all she and dad tried to raise us all to know and love our Heavenly Father. We thank and praise Him for finally taking her home. I’m sure when she entered His presence He said “Well done My good and faithful servant” ❤️❤️❤️

It was my extreme pleasure to meet, and get to know the Gosko family through my work at a local credit union. I always felt the Gosko family was special, and represented the "All American family". They never failed to improve my day.
She has departed, but will never really be gone. God Bless

Aunt Ruth was a dearly loved aunt of mine, as well as one of my Godparents. She would always have a smile for me and would always have a kind word to say. I think she was like that not only to me, but also to others that she made contact with. My wife, Min and I, know that she will be sorely missed, not only by her family, but also by her close friends. We knew that the last several months have really been challenging for her. My wife and I sincerely hope that we all can think of the great memories that we had with Ruth. Yes, she will be sorely missed by us all. But there is great news! She will now have no suffering. Her Lord and Savior was waiting with open arms for her to come home to him to His Eternal Heavenly Home. Hallelujah!

I was always met with a hug and that famous Gosko smile. When I joined the Arndt Family through marriage to her nephew Dennis. When we mourned his untimely death and when I presented my new husband, Tom. I was ALWAYS met with the love of dear dear Aunt Ruth and Uncle Dan. Such grace. Such love. Unwavering faith. We are all comforted by knowing they were met with the throngs of angels with open arms and our Lord saying, “well done!”
The back right section of Holy Trinity will always have a new angel sitting with her family. Aunt Ruth, you will be greatly missed. Love Tom and Georgia Clough-Wauconda, IL

Spending time with the family and waiting for a slice of her Angel food cake, and the time at a reunion when she dressed as a crazy woman and scared the crap out of Judy, Karen, Vicki and me. When the other girls left, I thought they were hiding still and it took me 1/2 hour to get up the courage to leave. She was a real prankster, a lovely lady, a wise teacher and most importantly, a child of G-d.
