Carol Jean (Murray) Gordon

Carol Jean Murray Gordon, 67, of Dawsonville, died Dec. 4, 2017.

She was made perfect and complete, lacking in nothing and passed away surrounded by the people who love her most in this world. 

 Born in Beaver Falls, Penn. to Edward and Emma Murray, she resided in Lawrenceville for 37 years and recently settled in Dawsonville with her husband Jerry.

Carol was loyal, generous, loving, wise, resourceful and creative; a mother, wife, teacher and friend. She loved her family and poured her life into ensuring that each member thrived on their own. She was a great example of faithfulness—in the workplace, with her friends, organizations to which she dedicated her time and, most importantly, her relationship with God.

She taught Sunday school and ESL, sang in the choir, volunteered her time to others and worked a full-time job, but she let nothing come before loving her family, preparing home cooked meals, dominating at scrabble or raising her children and letting them know their value and worth. Her children arise and call her blessed.

Carol had varied interests including musicals, cooking shows, sci-fi and reading; piano, baking, sewing and creating; playing board games, word games and trivia; bible study, the power of prayer, hymns and advocating for lives of unborn children. 

Her son, Douglas Gordon, preceded her in death.

Survivors include her husband of 42 years, Jerry Gordon; daughters and sons-in-law, Jennifer and Andy Kinsey of Dawsonville, Katie and Corey Hill of Hoschton; son and daughter-in-law, John and Kimberly Gordon of Lithia, Fla.; 10 grandchildren: Johnathan Gordon, Isabelle, Elliott and Anderson Kinsey, Rylee and Bellamy Gordon, and Lorelei, Jack, Felicity and Sloan Hill; various other relatives also survive.

Those who know and love Carol are grieved by the loss of her life in this world, but we are comforted in knowing that she will live forever in eternity with her heavenly father and that one day we will be reunited. 

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 

The family received friends from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m. Dec. 7 at Bearden Funeral Home.

Interment followed in Dawsonville Memorial Gardens. 

Bearden Funeral Home of Dawsonville was in charge of the arrangements.
