Chloe was born at home on the family farm near Waynesville, Missouri, on June 21, 1936. Her parents, Omer & Vella Adkison, welcomed her as the second of their four daughters. Her growing up years were spent in the Missouri Ozarks until World War 2, when the family temporarily moved to Castle Rock, Washington. While living in Castle Rock, by way of a chance encounter at the local feed store, Chloe's family met another family form the Ozarks, Edgar and Eva Gott, among whose members was the man that she would ultimately share a lifetime together with, Rex Gott.

After the close of the War the Adkison family moved back to the Ozarks, while the Gott family set down their roots in Washington. This resulted in a long distance romance, which led to a wedding on October 25, 1952. The honeymoon trip found them traveling back to Castle Rock where they began their life together as husband & wife. About a year later their son Harold was born. And then five years after that, Tim was added to the family. Rex worked in the Big Woods. And Chloe, who was a very young mother, began her life's calling of being his best friend & partner in life. In 1961 they moved the family to Humboldt County California. There they stated Gott Logging Company, a business that they owned and operated for over 40 years.

Her faith in Christ was the driving passion of her life. Her favorite Bible passage was, "For to me to live is Christ", and together Rex & Chloe sought to bring their faith into every area of their lives. After a long battle with ill health, Chloe passed away peacefully from this life early in the morning on August 6, 2018. She & Rex were inseparable. She died 17 days after her beloved partner in life.

Chloe is survived by her son, Harold (and wife Linda), by her grandchildren: Jennifer, Robert (and wife Mica), Ellen, Angel, and Amber, two great-grandchildren, Kaden & Urijah, her two sisters, Norma Kotz (and husband John) & Joyce Vandivort, two of Rex's brothers, Norman & Kenneth (and spouses), and by numerous nephews & nieces from both sides of the family. She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Rex, as well as their son Tim. Also by her parents, sister, Jewel Shelton (and husband Delbert), by her brother-in-law, Jerry Vandivort, and by three of Rex's brothers: Jim, Gene, and Chet.

The memorial service will be held at Sander's Funeral home on Saturday, August 11 at 11:00.
