Jenice Ann Gordon


Jenice (Jen) Ann Gordon, 80, of Wilmington, NC went to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 4, 2020.

Born on April 20, 1939 in Johnstown, PA she was the elder of two daughters of the late John Carl Galbreath and Edith Ann (Sharpe) Galbreath. She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, Bernard Jack Gordon, and cousin, Thomas Theodore Carson.

Jen graduated from Lock Haven State Teachers College in central Pennsylvania and moved to Maryland with her husband in the late 1960’s to begin her career as a dedicated teacher. Her enthusiasm for education showed in the many success stories she shared in bringing difficult classroom situations to a happy resolution. She loved her school children and shared in the childish delight as they conquered learning challenges. Jen and her husband retired to Wilmington to be near their son Jon when he was discharged from the Marines at Camp Lejeune.

    Jen was such a wonderful person. She and Don Jackson (my brother-in-law) were so sweet together. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. Truly loved that woman. We will miss her greatly. Condolences to MaryLou, Jon and Don.

    Miss Jen was a beautiful woman. I loved listening to her stories and having coffee together. She loved her son, Jon, to no end. I will never be able to hear that whistle or Andy Griffiths voice and not think of her! My heart goes out to Jon and Don and all the family!
