In memoriam: Daisy Mae Gordon


Daisy Mae Gordon
GORDON, Daisy Mae
Born on December 20, 1925 in the Parish of Westmoreland, Jamaica, West Indies. Her parents were Cecil and Sarah Wright. Her father died in Panama before she was born and her mother married Charles Moffatt. Daisy attended Bethel Town Primary School and went on to the Carron Hall Practical Training Center in St. Mary’s Jamaica. Certified in Domestic Science, she gained years of experience in Kingston in this field. Her knowledge allowed her to migrate to Ottawa, Canada in 1956. Daisy was sent by the Ministry of Labor and worked first with the Diplomatic Corps. Still anxious to work with the sick and elderly she trained to become a certified Nursing Assistant. She worked with the Beacon Hill Retirement Home, Island Lodge and the Carlingview Nursing Home for many years. She was a very active person and she continued on her retirement to visit private homes attending to the sick and helpless. Daisy was full of beauty and sweetness. She was gentle, upright and pure. Of sensitiveness and delicacy of principles, she could not be blemished with the slightest stain. She was the type of person who in public, private, home or abroad won respect and charmed the hearts of all who knew her. She is survived by her only brother Carlton H. Moffatt and sister-in-law Constance Moffatt (Florida); nephews Delroy (Atlanta Georgia), Cory (Corona, California); nieces Cheryll (Atlanta, Georgia), Marion (Lehigh Acres, Florida), Cherise (Jamaica) and many other relatives to mourn her loss. Her life cannot be diminished. Her love will continue to radiate in our hearts. God broke our hearts to take her – but we are assured she is now at rest. A million times we have cried, if love could have saved her she would never have died. Now she is sitting at the feet of Jesus.
