Miriam loved traveling and had been fortunate enough to have visited Europe, Egypt, New Zealand, Mexico, Alaska, Australia and all over the United States.  She was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother and enjoyed nothing more than attending her children and grandchildren’s events.

She is survived by her children; Mike (Sharon) Gorsuch of Gaithersburg, Maryland, Dave “Moose” (Sam) Gorsuch of Gambier, Judy (Brad) Moore of Galena, Deb (John) Pribonic of Mount Vernon and Terri (Dave) Dobson of Mount Vernon; eleven grandchildren; numerous great grandchildren; a half-brother, Nelson (Ellie) Blue and a half-sister, Carolyn (George) Adkins.

Besides her parents she was preceded in death by her husband Robert Gorsuch (1987) and a half-brother Harold Blue.

Due to concerns with the current pandemic, the Gorsuch family will observe a private service, but it will be live streamed at the Flowers-Snyder Funeral Home Facebook page beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday.  Mr. David Dahlstein will be officiating.  Burial will follow in Union Grove Cemetery near Gambier.

Memorial contributions in Miriam’s name may be made to Hospice of Knox County or Union Grove Church of Christ.

The family would like to thank Sherri and Merri for the incredible care our mom received.

  • Hi my nieces & nephews,
    The video is a phenomenal tribute to your beautiful mother. I cried tears of great loss. We didn’t get to spend much time together growing up, she and I , but I will miss her terribly. My first memory of her was her brushing her eye brows before a date. The memory is clear as if it happened yesterday:) I couldn’t understand why she’d do that! :).
    I will/ do miss her dearly already-
    Sending our love 💕 to all of you.

  • To Mike and Sharon and all of your family, Roger and I send our sincere condolences at this difficult time. Your mom seems like such a wonderful mother and grandmother and a joy to be with. She will be truly missed. Cherish your finest memories of her. She will be with you always. Love, Sue and Roger






  • The Family of Miriam Gorsuch,
    I have many happy memories of your mother from when we golfed in the same league at Tomahawk Golf Course. She loved to play and was a very good golfer. She usually used only irons, no woods. and she could hit that ball a mile. You could always count on her to be there. Wishing all of you comfort at this difficult time.

  • My Gorsuch nieces and nephews,
    I didn’t spend a lot of time with Miriam but I miss her very much. She was my big sister and one of my caregivers when I was young. She and your father were a lot of fun when they came around. As a child I spent sleepovers at their house and I was always very sad when I had to go home.
    We have lost a great lady.
    You have my condolences.
    Nelson Blue
