Rebecca Goter-Kuruc

Rebecca "Becca" Goter-Kuruc, of Woodworth, N.D., was taken suddenly and peacefully from her family and friends much too early at the young age of 42 on the evening of October 24, 2023.

Her funeral service was held on Friday, November 3, 2023, at 10:30 a.m., at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Woodworth, N.D., with Pastor Robert Hill officiating. Hymns were "The Old Rugged Cross," "Just As I Am," "How Great Thou Art" and "Jesus Loves Me." Fellowship continued following the luncheon at Tito's Tavern in Woodworth.

Honorary pallbearers were all of Becca's friends at Tito's Tavern.

Becca came into this world on January 13, 1981, in Carrington, N.D., as the first child of Dean and Deb Goter. She spent many years living in different parts of the U.S., including Texas, South Carolina, and Washington State.

Rebecca was a "people" person and felt most at home in the service industry where she would always bring a smile to her customer's faces and enjoy carrying on a conversation with them.

She returned to N.D. in 2015 living in Jamestown for the first two years and then moved to Woodworth where she worked at Tito's Tavern and soon after decided to become business partners with her brother Martin in 2019.

She was also elected to the City Council of Woodworth, N.D., and was a current member at the time of her passing.

Rebecca was an avid collector of dollar bills and coins and she always loved her crosswords, trivia games, and random facts. She enjoyed playing darts, pool, and pinochle; attending tournaments whenever possible.

She had two dogs who were her "babies" and also enjoyed caring for her many plants. Orange was her favorite color and she would collect anything and everything that included it. One of her favorite pastimes was coming up with new flavors for the Woodworth Teas and introducing them to newcomers and regulars at the bar.

She is survived by her parents, Dean and Deb Goter; her brother, Martin (Adrienne) Goter; many aunts, uncles, cousins and her two dogs, Mercury and Xena.

She touched the lives of so many people in her community, family, and the friendships she made; she will be missed by all.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Humane Society or the Prairie Paws organization in Jamestown, N.D., in Rebecca's name.
