Amelia A. Gordon

May 18, 1972 — December 13, 2023

Amelia Ann Gordon (nee Harris)


Amy unexpectedly went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on December 13 2023.

She was born in 1972 to Karen Harris (nee Mortensen) and the late Richard Harris.

She leaves behind her loving husband of 33 years, Bill Gordon, her daughter Jessica Gordon partner Brian their children Emmett and Raegan, Her daughter Kristen Fisher and Grandson Elijah Fisher, as well as her daughter Katelyn Januschik, and her cherished Jake Januschik, Matthew Burke and Ricky Fischer who she loved and considered her own sons. She will also be forever missed by her father-in-law Edwin Gordon, as well as her aunts, uncles, brothers-in law, and sisters-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was greeted in glory by her daughter Rebecca Lynn Gordon, her grandson Payton Matthew Burke and Mother-in-law Kathleen Gordon.

Amy was an avid animal lover, and proud wildlife rescuer. It wasn't rare to find her with her hands full bottle feeding an orphaned litter of bunnies or raccoons. She also loved spoiling her dog Hanna and grand-dogs Tank & Ivy.

She loved the wind in her hair riding in her jeep and cruising with her husband on his Harley. She loved her country and her freedom. She loved music, jewelry, and people. But most of all she loved her family and was so looking forward to Christmas and the magic in watching her children and grandchildren celebrate the holidays together.

She struggled with pain everyday, but she was a self-less soul and always took care of others before herself. She has touched the lives of many in her 51 short years, bringing joy to others. She was truly loved and will be surely missed by all who knew her.
