Jean Marie Gordon
Jean Marie (Fisher) Gordon, age 65, of Holt, MI, passed away February 19, 2023, at her home.
Jean was born in Ann Arbor, MI, on September 30, 1957, the daughter of Dean (deceased) and Nancy (Gleason) Fisher.
Jean is survived by her husband, Richard Gordon, Jr. of Holt, MI; her mother, Nancy Fisher of Holt, MI; sister, Sarah Fisher of Holt, MI; her 2 sons, Dale (Jessica) Clemons of Brighton, MI and Travis (Shannon) Clemons of Clarkston, MI; 2 stepsons, Kyle (Tashanne) Gordon of Harrisburg, PA and Cory Gordon of Riley, MI; grandchildren, Jackson Clemons, Tucker Clemons, Hudson Clemons, Ellie Clemons, and step-granddaughter Cheyanne Gordon; and many nieces and nephews.
Through decades of professional development as a project manager, Jean was able to not only provide, but always found a way to put family first. She never wavered at adversity and always strove to leave the world a better place than she found it. Her love transcended professional boundaries and those who knew and worked with her understood she was family.
Reading. Camping. Summer fires. Winter snowfalls. Baking with grandchildren. Gardens flourishing with her husband. A mother. A protector. A guiding light of compassion in a world full of uncertainty. Jean will be sorely missed by those she’s left behind, but welcomed by those who have been waiting.
A celebration of her life will be held in the spring, when the flowers are blooming and nature comes to life again; Jean’s favorite time of the year.
Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Holt/Delhi Chapel.

Such a loss! Jean was a wonderful individual. I’ve worked with her for the past 2 years and I was amazed at her compassion. She was always busy with projects at work and yet her family was always on her mind. She loved sharing pictures of her grand kids and telling stories of the time spent with them. And yet, she always took the time to ask me how I was doing and if there was anything she could do to help.
I will miss her dearly.

I am so saddened by jean’s passing. I remember her last post introducing her newest grandchild. Jean, you pumped my spirts on the Eve of becoming a new grandmother. We were classmates, band camp bunk mates, and friends. We also picked strawberries together at Farmer Grants; boy, that was tough work. My dear friend, May you Rest In Peace, and May your family treasure their memories. Love always my classmate, Corinne

Such a beautiful friend and classmate. Jean always smiled and giggled with everyone. She was involved in many class activities and always commented on my posts on FB with nice words. You will be missed by many. God Bless your family and prayers.

Remembering Jean as my neighbor when we lived in Dexter, MI. We worked together as kids at CJ’s Party Store, on the corner of N. Territorial & Webster Church Rd. I was in awe of her natural beauty with a smile that could light up the darkest skies. I have no doubt she’s a bright star now!
RIP dear Jean

I will always miss you. I remember playing at your house as a little girl. Thank you for being my godmother. Until we see each other again.

Jean was an absolute joy to work with on projects. She was a talented PM, always one step ahead of the challenge that would be confronting a team. Jean was much more than a PM to the folks she worked with. She was a mentor, a coach, a listening ear and a comforting shoulder to cry on. Jean made the world she lived in a better and more hopeful place. I will miss her light. My heart goes out to her family, who she loved so much. May the memories of her jokes, laughter and her love be a comfort to you. Take care of each other.

My condolences to the family. Please give Nancy Fisher an extra hug from me! This has got to be so hard and I would like her to know that her cousin remembers her kindness.
