Shelvia Jean (Jeannie) Gossett, of Mountain Home, passed peacefully in her sleep in the early morning hours of Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021, three days before her 84th birthday. Jeannie was born in Augusta, Georgia, on April 7, 1937, to Horace and Harriet (Craig) Garvin. Jeannie married Bobby Joe Gossett in 1955 in Trenton, New Jersey.

Jeannie loved singing opera, dancing, and animals. One of her favorite things to do for fun was travel with a friend to Jackpot. She worked hard to support her family with numerous jobs, to include working at the Golf Course in Mountain Home, Paulís Market, Magic West, and in later years, she found fulfillment in caring for elderly people.
