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.

    I will miss Jen dearly. Learning of her passing hurts deeply. I enjoyed many years of stopping by and visiting her. We had many spiritual discussions. We talked about the Bible and God’s hope for mankind and the future. She was lovely, beautiful and kind. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and those closest to her.
