Dear family and friends,
It is with deep sadness that we must announce the death of Maria Arakaki-Goehry. Maria was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 28 months ago and has been aggressively fighting her diagnosis ever since. With the help and support of her husband, daughters, family, and friends, she did all she could to remain the charismatic, headstrong, and generous soul we all know and love. Maria died peacefully in her sleep while at home on Tuesday, October 24, 2023 but we take comfort in knowing she is finally at peace and in a better place.
We invite all of Maria’s friends to a Celebration of Life on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at 2 p.m. It will be held at:
Owen Beach Pavilion
5605 Owen Beach Rd
Tacoma, WA 98407
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the St. Anne Hospital Foundation at https://www.vmfh.org/our…/st-anne-hospital-foundation
