Judy Dianne Kirk Gordon, 73, entered the gates of heaven on Monday, June 14th, 2021. Judy was born on December 1st, 1947, in Garden City, Kansas, the daughter of Henry Charles Kirk and Mary Eleanor Jones. Judy graduated from Scott City High School. Judy met her wonderful husband, John Alfred Gordon while working on her teaching degree at Kansas State University.
Judy married John Alfred Gordon on November 5th, 1972; and together they raised two beautiful daughters, Vanessa (Bailey), and Christy (Faylor). One of Judy’s proudest moments is when she became a grandmother (Grammy). She had 3 grandchildren: Kaylee, Mackenzie, and Michael. Judy’s face would light up with pure joy whenever her grandchildren were around. There must be a special love between a Grammy and her grandchildren. She was really close to Kaylee as Kaylee was the oldest and the only grandchild for the first 15 years. They were able to spend a lot of one-on-one time together.
Judy had a servant’s heart. Judy was extremely kind, caring, compassionate, and had a beautiful soul. She had an incredible love for Jesus and continued to grow in her faith through bible study. Judy was a beacon of light and her faith shined through her heart, mind, and soul (Matthew 22:37). Mom was an inspiration to us all (Proverbs 31: 28-29) and taught us the importance of building a strong relationship with Jesus. Our strong faith comes from watching our mom’s giving heart. Mom was the person that we looked up to the most. We will always be grateful for the time and special memories that we had with our beloved mom, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.
Mom loved teaching kids how to read and made a difference in their lives. She taught reading recovery and ESL for 25 years at Camey Elementary. Judy was an inspiration to all the kids that she taught and built a strong connection with each child. Judy also donated to World Vision charity and sponsored 7 children a month. Judy had a giving heart and loves to make a difference.
Judy leaves loving memories to be cherished by her devoted children, Vanessa, and her husband Adam; Christy, and her husband Cory; 3 grandchildren, Kaylee, Mackenzie, and Michael, and she was a devoted sister to Chuck Kirk and Kathy Lawrence.
