December 15, 1938 ~ January 16, 2023

Born in: Melrose Park, IL
Resided in: Pueblo, CO

Janet M. Gordon, 84, passed away on January 16, 2023. She is survived by her husband, Duane Gordon; 6 children, Jeffrey (Francie) Gordon, Catherine (Michael) Hammond, James (Jayme) Gordon, Douglas (Jennifer) Gordon, Timothy Gordon, and Brian (Sarah) Gordon; sister, Donna (Steve) Kudabeck, 9 grand-children and 2 great grand-children.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Lillian Holub; father, Edward Schlichting; and sister, Susan Ingmire.

Janet was born on December 15, 1938, in Melrose Park Illinois. She worked at Illinois Bell Telephone, and Baskin Robins and was a home healthcare provider. Janet enjoyed having a big family, reading and studying the Bible, sharing its message with others, and knitting, sewing, and cross-stitching.

She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s witnesses on December 31, 1955, and was currently a member of the Sunset Park congregation in Pueblo, Colo. If there were only one word we could use to describe our wife, mother, and grandmother, it would be “Sweet.” It is the word we are hearing over and over from friends and family in their condolences. She truly was the sweetest wife and mother, and we will miss her more than words can say. There will be a piece of our hearts missing… until we see her again when our Loving Father, Jehovah God through his Son, Jesus Christ, raises her back to life in Paradise earth. (John 5:28,29) She had a strong faith in God’s promises for the future when He will fulfill his original purpose for the earth and humans. She taught her children about our Creator, Jehovah, and raised them with Christian principles. Revelation 21:3,4 was one of the many Bible verses she taught her children and shared with others in her ministry… “God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” We will be forever grateful we had such a loving and sweet wife, mother, and grandmother. We will strive to imitate her every day of our lives.

Service will be at 2:00 pm, Saturday, January 21, 2023, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 4121 Nature Center Rd. Pueblo Colo. Online condolences, www.MontgomerySteward.com

  1. Some of my fondest memories were of visiting this wonderful home of a woman who managed to rear several children and while they were at home was always ready to let a pioneer sit at the table, especially on pizza night. She had the making of pizza down to an art. Homemade and plentiful and delicious. Afterwards we would play games while she constantly had a giggle at the easy chatter of the full house. What a perfect example of hospitality. I loved those evenings and for as single pioneer I showed up often. For that quality I always admired her. It will be nice to meet again in better times.

  2. Sending loving thoughts to Duane, my niece and nephews, and Janet’s grandchildren and great grandchildren with deepest sympathy for your loss. All my love, Aunt Donna
