12/8/1915 – 5/26/2014
Genevieve E. Gordon, age 98 of Greenville passed away on Monday, May 26, 2014 at the Laurels of Kent in Lowell, Michigan. She was born on December 7, 1915 in Bay City, Michigan, the daughter of Albert & Josephine (Deska) Drolett.
On May 31, 1947, Genevieve was married to Floyd J. Gordon in Holly, Michigan and he preceded her in death on September 25, 1985. Also preceding her in death were her parents, a daughter, Claudia Bigelow and a son, James Floyd Gordon.
Surviving is one daughter, Jo Gordon-Anderson of Greenville, Michigan and a son and his wife, Greg & Judy Gordon of Plymouth, Michigan, eight grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren.
Mrs. Gordon has been a resident of Greenville since 2007. Formerly of Clarkston, she was very active in the Clarkston United Methodist Church and the Stephen Ministries. During World War II, she devoted much of her time to the American Red Cross. She enjoyed needlework, loved to sew as well as teaching sewing, but most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family and helping others wherever she could. She will be missed by all who knew her.
A memorial service beginning at 11:00 AM will be held on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at the Clarkston United Methodist Church in Clarkston with Rev. Amy Mayo-Moyler officiating. A luncheon will follow the service at the church.
There will not be any visitation held as cremation has already taken place in accordance with Mrs. Gordon’s wishes. Final interment will be at the Lakeview Cemetery in Clarkson.
For those desiring to do so, the family has suggested memorial considerations can be made to the Clarkston United Methodist Church. There will be envelopes available at the church or at the Simpson Family Funeral Home in Sheridan.
