In Memoriam: Pat Gordon

Our friend, Pat Gordon, passed away December 7, 2014 in hospice care. She left us suddenly, after a severe fall that led to complications, but she had been stoically suffering from health ailments over the past several years. We all thought the world of her. As one member wrote: “She was a true lady in every sense.”

Her obituary lauded her role as a wife, mother and grandmother, but no mention was made of her many contributions to District V and Carroll Garden Club which I attempt to rectify here.

Pat Gordon had joined Carroll Garden Club by 1997 latest.
