Obituary for Carol "Shayde" Ann Goracke

Carol “Shayde” Ann Goracke, 55, of Beatrice died Saturday, January 13, 2018. She was born on June24, 1962 at Beatrice. Shayde graduated from Beatrice High School and was a state record holding distance runner. After high school she won marathons across the country. A gifted musician, Shayde could play about any instrument she picked up and especially loved the violin. She achieved her Associates Degree in Journalism, as a newspaper photo journalist she won many awards for her writing and photography. She was an artist, scuba diver and for a short time she was a pilot. She ran her own graphic design business for many years. What made her the happiest was music and spoiling her many pets throughout the years. Her way with animals (wild and domestic) was truly magical. Family and friends will miss her bright smile, easy laugh, sharing nature, and the genuine empathy and kindness that filled her soul.

Survivors include her two sisters, Jeanne (Ralph) Knape of Davenport, IA and Connie Goracke; ex-husband, Paul Voller; several aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, Dale and Anita Janssen Goracke.

Cremation has taken place and there will be no viewing. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. A register book will be available for signatures. Fox Funeral Home of Beatrice is in charge of the arrangements.
