Hattie Mae Gordon Obituary

Born on August 3, 1920, Hattie Mae Gordon was the third child of four born to Dan Paulin and Mary Jones in Orangeburg, S.C. Leading the exploration for her younger sister Ella, Hattie moved to Brooklyn, New York as a teenager gaining employment as a domestic worker. She met and married her jitterbug dancing partner Fred Monroe Gordon, and became the proud mother of one daughter Elaine Gordon who was her pride and joy.

Hattie was committed to raising her only daughter along with playing an instrumental role in helping to raise her two nephews, Richard, and Ronald Blair and her first two grandchildren Lacey Lawrence and Raquel Bailey-Blackman (Kelli).

Although Hattie did not complete her high school education, she was determined to be the best reader she could by using the Bible and the study of scripture as her instructor. She was remarkable in that manner and could quote any scripture presented to her. She was a devoted Christian that enjoyed reading her Bible and listening to gospel music and a member of the Holy House of Prayer where she sang in the choir and was a member for over 60 years.

As a family, we were blessed with the privileged of celebrating and honoring her 103rd birthday with all the bells, whistles, dignity and respect from a NYPD Police Motorcade and a Proclamation from Congresswoman Yvette B. Clarke, United States House of Representatives, a memory we will forever cherish.

Hattie was preceded in death by her husband Fred Monroe Gordon, sister Ella Elizabeth Bruce, and nephew Ronald Blair. To cherish her memory, she leaves her daughter Elaine Gordon-James (husband Kevin), grandchildren Lacey, Kelli (husband Chris), Petrie and Amber (wife Nicole), great-grandchildren Destin, Jeremiah, Christin, and Amyiah, and nephew Richard and a host of grand and great grand nieces and nephews.
