Hattie Gotch

BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA — Hattie Gotch, 97, of Melbourne, formerly of Edenborn, Pennsylvania, died peacefully on May 19, 2012.

She was the loving mother of Marj Bartok and grandmother of Robert Bartok.

She was preceded in death by husband, Steve Gotch; parents, Rose and John Balaz; and sisters and brothers, Ann, Julia, Tommy and Eddie.

Hattie is survived by her brother, Stevie; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, George and Maryann Gotch; a number of nieces and nephews; and special friends (like Erma) who were all devoted to her and thankful to have had her in their lives.

She loved you all very much.

Having my mother for as long as I have, well, she has left me many wonderful memories of her love and devotion to me. I will also remember and cherish her beautiful qualities, her captivating smile, her wonderful sense of humor and lovely voice.

Arrangements are entrusted to Beach Funeral Home.

Services will be for family members only, and a memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at a later date in Pennsylvania.
