ANNE ISOBELLE GORDON (nee MacLENNAN) 1912 - 2009 On May 1, 2009, Anne Gordon died peacefully in her sleep at Windsor Elms Senior Citizens Home, Windsor, NS. Anne was born November 6, 1912 in Brookfield, Colchester County, NS. Educated at Colchester County Academy, Truro, NS and Mount Allison University (BA 1933). She married Rev. C. Earle Gordon in 1940 - the beginning of 31 years of supportive ministry in Amherst (Trinity - St. Stephens), Truro (First United) and Winnipeg (St. Andrews River Heights). In this role, her social elegance, generosity of spirit and personal humility endeared her to all. In 1989, after 35 years in Winnipeg, she moved back to Nova Scotia to be nearer to family and, until her recent illness, continued to pursue an active role in her church and community. Love of family, loyalty in friendship, dedication to church and community, and a passion for classical music defined her life. She was a long time subscriber and supporter of the Arts: Winnipeg and Nova Scotia Symphony Orchestras, Winnipeg and Nova Scotia Art Galleries, and Halifax Women for Music Club. She was a member of the University Womens Club, Winnipeg Twenty Club and a life member of UCW. She was predeceased by her husband Rev. C. Earle Gordon DD (1971), her daughter Kathryn Millward (1993). Surviving are sisters Katherine Hill (Walpole, MA) and Winnifred Johnston (Ottawa), her son John Gordon and his wife Brenda Willey (Porters Lake, NS), Grandchildren - Johanna (Halifax) and Andrew (Hersey, PA) Gordon; David (Greenboro, NC) and Matthew (Toronto) Millward. Great grandchildren - Hanna and Samuel Millward (Toronto). Family and friends wish to acknowledge the professionalism of the nurses and staff of Windsor Senior Citizens Home for compassionate and supportive care in her final years. Her energy, optimism and joyful sense of humour will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Memorial service will be held at St. Andrews United Church, Halifax, Monday, May 11 at 2 p.m. Interment will take place in Winnipeg at a later date.
