Aubrey Rinata Goss, age 38, of Boone, passed away Tuesday, March 29, 2022, at her home. Aubrey was born October 17, 1983 in Watauga County. She graduated from the New Opportunity School for Women at Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk where she also majored in Psychology. Aubrey's career consisted of various modeling jobs in the High Country, including billboards and magazines for Mast General Store.
She loved her family beyond words, and her four beautiful children were the loves of her life. Aubrey's passions included fighting against the many injustices she saw around her, helping the less fortunate, most often beyond her means, and celebrating growing children. She enjoyed spending time with animals, was an avid reader, and had a deep connection and love for nature and our beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. Aubrey was also a courageous survivor of Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
She is survived by her children, Trinity, Sebastian, Christian and Malakai, all of the home; mother, Dixie Smith-Sorrow and husband, Stephen, of Boone; father, Rex Goss and wife, Teressa of West Jefferson; sister, Amber Robinson and Christopher Pope; brother, Ryan Goss; a sister-in-law, Georgia Goss-Brannon; and nieces, Lily, Tori and Isla, all of Boone. A number of aunts, uncles, and cousins also survive.
