August 24, 1962 - March 24, 2018
Kelli Rae (Goff) Fitzgerald, aged 55, died Saturday, March 24th surrounded by her loving family and friends. She put up a fierce 1 year battle against cancer, showing us all her strength until the end. Kelli was raised in Maryville, MO and graduated from Maryville High School in 1980. She was an all-state basketball player and also lettered in golf for four years under her coach and dad, Chuck Goff. Kelli graduated from NWMSU and was a huge Bearcat fan. She started her long career in the car business as one of the first female service writers in the automotive industry. She went on to become Comptroller for Jack Miller Automotive, where she worked for over 25 years. Kelli most recently worked as Comptroller for Fenton Automotive. Kelli never knew a stranger; her philosophy was always the more, the merrier. Always the consummate hostess, she threw countless dinners, parties, showers, and too many other gatherings to count. She opened her home and her heart to all. Kelli was a strong woman who faced her diagnosis with grit and grace. She was a mentor and friend to all who met her. Our lives are all better for knowing and loving her. Kelli is preceded in death by her mother, Nancy Goff. She leaves behind her loving husband of 26 years, Robert Fitzgerald, daughter, Madison Fitzgerald, her father, Charles (Kathy) Goff, brothers, Corey (Jenn) Goff, Casey (Jan) Goff, Keith (Holly) Wurm, her sisters, Emily (Darren) Stone, and Meredith Green, and many beloved nieces, nephews, other close family and friends. A Celebration of Kelli’s life will be 1-3pm, Saturday, March 31st at The American Legion in Parkville.
