Dana Paulette Goshien, 62, of Benton, Arkansas passed away peacefully surrounded by her family and loved ones.  She was born February 17, 1959 in Little Rock to the late Robert and Martha (Pinkerton) Kirk.

Dana married her high school sweetheart, Randy, and together they enjoyed forty-five years of marriage.  She was a talented hair stylist for many years.  Dana served many families while working at funeral homes including Smith-Benton and Roller-Chenal.  She had a servant’s heart and always strived to please others.   Her family was her world and she always put them first.  Her grandsons and her favorite son-in-law, BRAD, were the light of her life.  Dana always found special little gifts for her grandsons and was known for her crazy on-line purchases.  Although Dana may have been small in size, she was a stick of “dy-na-mite” who stood her ground, said what was on her mind, and was tough as nails.

Dana leaves behind her loving husband, Randy Goshien; daughter, LaCretia Hutchinson and her husband Brad; grandsons:  Tristian Hutchinson and wife Jamie, Carter Hutchinson and girlfriend Maggie Gilliam, Grant Hutchinson, and Landon Hutchinson; great-grandson, Eli Hutchinson; and a host of family and friends who love Dana and will miss her always.

Visitation will be held from 5:00 – 7:00 PM, Tuesday, September 14, at Smith-Benton Funeral Home, 322 N. Market Street, Benton, Arkansas.  Funeral service, officiated by Bro. Sidney, will be held at 10:00 AM, Wednesday, September 15, at Ironton Baptist Church, 14718 Ironton Cut-Off Rd, Little Rock, Arkansas.  Burial following at Woods Cemetery.
