Beth Gordon Pearce was my Aunt Beth. My Dad was her brother, Ken Gordon. Sadly, I do not have many memories of her, but as a little girl I was at the wedding of your Mom and Dad at Grandma Gordon's farm. I thought she was a beautiful bride. Once she moved north, we seemed to lose touch with your family.

It is sad to think that she was the last of 9 siblings and that now a whole generation of Gordons has passed away. It would appear she experienced some deep sadness in her life, but also the great joys and blessings of a large family.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It is not easy to lose a Mom and Covid has made grieving even more difficult this year. Be assured of my prayers for all your families.

On behalf of our family, I would take this moment to extend our condolences to the entire Darch family.
Your Mom helped to create many, many wonderful memories as our nieghbour. From buying batches of fresh rhubarb from me which were promptly transformed into delicious surprises for the family, to patching me up when I was bitten by a dog, to sending the entire group of kids down the road to help our household when a 'small' grass fire got away and threatened to become a huge problem.
Although our mourning will not be the same as yours, you can have pride and confidence that her patience, love, determination and strength of character will never be forgotten.
