Obituary for Lenora M. "Lee" Gordon (Makar)

Lenora M. "Lee"  Gordon (Makar)
LENORA “LEE” GORDON, passed away on Wednesday, October 3, 2018, at the age of 76, after a long and valiant battle against cancer. She was born February 3, 1942 and was a lifelong resident of New Jersey, residing in Rahway, North Brunswick and Manasquan prior to retiring to Westlake in Jackson Twp., NJ, 14 years ago.
Lee and her husband, Frank owned Gordon Radiator in Elizabeth, NJ, for 40 years prior to retiring. She loved spending time with family and traveling throughout the United States, Australia and Europe.
Lee never lost her faith or her positive outlook throughout her illness. Her goal was to live as long as possible so that she could continue to enjoy many of her children and grandchildren’s milestones. Lee won that battle…living not months but years with stage 4 cancer.
She was predeceased by her parents, James and Florence Makar; and by her brother, James Makar. She is survived by her beloved husband of 54 years, Francis of Jackson Twp., NJ; her son, Frank and his boys, Kevin and Kyle of Howell Twp., NJ, and their mother, Eileen Jenny Gordon; her daughter, Kimberly George and her husband Stephen of Milltown, NJ; her grandchildren, Katie, and Stephen; her sister, Susan Christine; and by her brother, Peter Makar. Without her family’s love, devotion and prayers, nothing would have been possible.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend her visitation from 4-8 PM on Monday, October 8, 2018, at the GEORGE S. HASSLER FUNERAL HOME, 980 Bennetts Mills Rd., Jackson Twp., NJ 08527.
