Jeannine Mae (Crocker) Gordon, 78, went to be with Jesus on Saturday, June 27, 2020 at 8:12 a.m. at her home in Grimes, Iowa. She fought a courageous battle with cancer. A celebration of life service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, July 3, 2020 at the Wing River Cemetery, in her home state of Minnesota. Memorials may be given to Hope Chapel Alliance Church, Verndale, MN; Camp Jim Bible Camp, Pillager, MN; or Crown College in St. Bonifacius, Minnesota.
Jeannine invited Jesus to be her personal Savior as an 8-year old and kept her faith to the end of her time in this world. Her final story is one of encouragement to us all, that we must stay close to Jesus because salvation is worth everything. Her life Bible verse was Proverbs 3:5-6 and she did indeed trust in the Lord with all her heart.
Jeannine was born in Wing River Township, Minnesota to Kenneth and Emily (Erickson) Crocker on July 26, 1941. She married Dennis Gordon on August 5, 1961. She was a devoted Pastor’s wife who taught Sunday School, played piano, led Bible studies, baked food, and prepared church bulletins. She loved people and made substantial differences in many lives. She enjoyed working as a para-educator in public schools and loved her time working at the Wadena Tri-County Health Care.
She is preceded in death by her parents and one sister, Kathy Bucknell, three sister-in-laws: Mae Crocker, Betty Crocker, and Kathy Crocker. She is survived by her husband, Dennis, four children: Denise & David Bubeck of Grimes, Iowa, Matthew & Beth Gordon of Torrington, Wyoming, Michelle & Steve Nawrocki of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Jolene & Mark Nawrocki of Wheat Ridge, Colorado. In addition, she has 13 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren and one on the way. She has 4 brothers, John, Jim, Jerry, and Dan & Michelle. Two sisters; Julie & Roger Riebling and Leola & Randy Beebe.
The family is very grateful for the professional and tender care of Dr. Tom Buroker and the Unity Point Hospice Blue Team. They were wonderful in the care they provided for our mom.
