Obituary for Lorene Deborah Gordon

Lorene Deborah (Edwards) Gordon
November 10, 1958 to September 3, 2020
Man people claim to love, to agape those around them. However, few understand that love is a ministry,
an act of service that culminates in ultimate sacrifice. Those who love authentically are a rare breed, and
Lorene was such a woman. For Lorene, loving those around her was as natural as breathing. She gave her
all, her life, her last breath to ensure that her husband, children, siblings, nieces, nephews, friends, clients,
customers, and fellow believers experienced the depth of her love and life in its fullness. Some would
assert that Lorene left this world prematurely, but we are fully persuaded that she finished her course with
dignity and honor. Lorene left this world with her love tank on empty.
The third if the six children born to Tom and Lucille (Fleming) Edwards, Lo, as we affectionately called
her, was a gift to our family. When our mother exited this world much too soon, it was Lorene who
assumed her mantle. She, n essence, became a mother to us all. She met the love of her life, David
Gordon, Jr. in 1972, and the two pent nearly five decades building a life and family together. Their
children, Donna, David, Richard, and Rena willingly shared their mother with the world. Wife and
mother were her primary ministries, but Lorene was also a pastor, prophet, businesswoman and a flat-out
cook. Lorene loves orchestrating large family and communal feasts, and all who were blessed to dine at
her table left full and completely satisfied. Her creativity, work ethic and dogged determination inspired
those in her sphere of influence to believe all things are possible. Yet, she willingly abandoned
her hopes, dreams, career, and ministry to enhance the lives of those around her. Equipping others to
succeed and supporting them in their journey because her calling and mission, she gave her all in order
for us to shine.
Now that she has left the temporal for eternal, it is up to us to continue her work and ministry.
Lorene now joins her father, Tom Edwards, Sr., mother, Lucille Edwards, and sisters Naomi Earl, Donna
(Earl) Frazier, Rena Gordon, sons David (Marcie) Gordon, Richard Gordon, sisters, Jerolene Gordon,

Barbara Fleming, Bessie (Lan) Edwards, brothers Tom (Pat) Edwards, Grover (Linda) Edwards, grand-
children, Earl, Elijah, Michael, Alexandria, Zavier, David, Jeremiah, Richard, Rheamora, Rheamesha,

Romard, Remarion, Rejiyahs, Reaziya, great grands and a host of nieces and nephews to cherish her
The family will gather on Saturday September 26, 2020 at 1:00PM. Location Barbara’s Kitchen School of
Excellence (BKSE) 17050 N. Highway US 301, Citra, Florida to celebrate her life and legacy.
