Mrs. Goshorn was a graduate of Clay City High School, class of 1943.  She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana Central College in 1949 and her Masters degree from Indiana State.  She married Glenn Goshorn on January 6, 1996.  Mrs. Goshorn was a teacher at Maxwell, Indiana, Marco, Indiana, and Worthington Jefferson, Indiana.  She taught for a total of 39 years.  She was a member of Folsom Memorial United Methodist Church of Worthington, Delta Kappa Gamma Teachers Honorary, Retired Teachers Association, and Delta Theta Tau.
