Elsie May Gordon, 94, of Sheridan and formerly of Homeplace, passed away Sunday morning, Dec. 2, 2018 at Majestic Care of Sheridan.
She was born Nov. 3, 1924.
There was nothing more important in her life than her family. She was fortunate enough to be able to stay at home and raise her children. As her children grew older and started to have families of their own, she was overjoyed to become a grandmother. This gave her the chance to do it all over again. Mrs. Gordon loved being a part of their lives on a daily basis. You could say that she was kind of a homebody, and that was just fine with her. She was quite content taking care of her husband, and keeping house.
When she carved out a little time for herself, she liked to sit down with a good book, do a little knitting, and arrange (and rearrange) her angel collection, along with whatever else ended up on her whatnot shelf.
Survivors include her two sons, Sonny J. (Treena) Gordon of Sheridan and Johnny L. Gordon of Homeplace; her daughter, Linda K. (Earl) Milburn of Homeplace; two grandchildren, Robert (Brandy) Eldridge and Matthew (Sadie) Eldridge; and four great-grandchildren, Morgan, Lucas, Landon and Spencer Eldridge.
She was preceded in death by her sister, Edna Marie; and by her husband, Harold F. Gordon in 1985.
Private family services are being planned for a later date. She will be laid to rest at Carmel Cemetery.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Kercheval Funeral Home of Sheridan.
