Unfortunately, Goldie passed away on August 16th, 2020, at Kirby, but Donna is grateful she was in such good hands until the end.

"The staff not only treated my mom with respect but also made sure all of our needs were met," Donna says. "The fear of the unknown is hard, but they certainly made the transition easier."

In Goldie's honor, her family gave tribute gifts to The Kirby Foundation as a token of gratitude.

"These memorial gifts allow us to acknowledge our appreciation for the care Kirby provided not only to our mom, but to all of us family members," Donna says.
