Jana Sue Gosney , age 59, of Quincy, died Saturday, October 17, 2020, at 2:41 am in Blessing Hospital.

Jana was born October 3, 1961 in Quincy, Illinois, the daughter of John Richard and Mary Feld Taylor. She married Dennis Gosney on June 7, 1986 in Quincy. He survives.

She attended Quincy High School. After high school she worked at various Quincy establishments including a local bakery and an ice cream shop. Jana went on to spend many years at Sterling Awards in Quincy. As her parents aged she became their primary caregiver until they passed. She will always be remembered as a caregiver; she loved taking care of others. She welcomed all into her home with not only open arms but with food and drink as well. She was a wonderful and talented cook. The neighborhood kids called her "Mama G." and she was often referred to as "the cool mom" by her children's' friends. Her spunky personality won everyone's hearts from the moment they met her. She was fun, carefree, loving, and giving. Jana was truly a force of nature. To be around her was a gift.

Survivors in addition to her husband include: two children, Angela Marie (Jeremy) Buss and Andrew William (fiancé Lexie Alexander) Gosney, both of Quincy; four grandchildren, Kaiden Phillip Buss, Adison Marie Buss, Kendal Rae Buss, and Maelynn Lucille Gosney, all of Quincy; two brothers, John Richard Taylor Jr. of Charlotte, NC, and Charles David (Denise) Taylor of Ursa; two sisters, Diana Lynn (Tony Achilles) Taylor of Rocky Mount, MO, and Phyllis Elaine (Larry) Graham of Quincy; and several cousins, aunts, and uncles.

Jana was preceded in death by her parents.

Jana was cremated per her wishes.

I was saddened when hearing the news of Jana’s passing. She was my neighbor across the street on Elmwood Dr. She and the entire Taylor family are all a part of my very fond childhood memories on Elmwood Drive. My condolences and prayers to the Gosney and Taylor families.
