Gwendolyn Horton (Nee: Terrell) RACINE Gwendolyn Horton, 67, affectionately known to her husband as Love Bone, received the promise of eternal life on Sunday, March 30, 2014. She was born in Aberdeen, MS, on February 9, 1947, daughter of the late Danny Broyles and Helen Terrell. Gwendolyn was united in marriage to Burnett Horton on October 9, 1976, in Chicago, IL. Gwendolyn was educated in the schools of Mississippi and received an Associate degree following high school in San Antonio, TX. She would have celebrated her fifty year high school class reunion next month in Mississippi. Gwendolyn worked in the shipping department for Bucyrus-Erie in Milwaukee until her retirement. Following her retirement, she faithfully served as a spiritual leader all over the country. Gwendolyn and Burnett loved to travel and have been to all fifty states. They also have travelled Mexico together. Burnett and Gwendolyn have been faithful members of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church in Racine. She was Vice-President of Missions, a Prayer Warrior, and participated in Wednesday Bible Study at St. Paul. Gwendolyn enjoyed spending her free time in her flower garden appreciating Gods beautiful creations. She will be dearly missed by all of her family and friends. Gwendolyn leaves to cherish her memory, her husband, Burnett Horton of Racine; son, Olanda (Carles) Hankle of Williamsburg, VA; spiritual children, Phoebe (Terry) Presson of Ft. Meyers, FL, Stephanie Bostic of Racine, Daphne Gerald of Naperville, IL; siblings, Jann (Leonard) Broyles of Aurora, IL, Patrick (Dorothy) Gordon of Oklana, MS, Johnny Gordon of San Antonio, TX, and Michelle Gordon of Tupelo, MS. Gwendolyn was a woman who truly reflected Gods love for His people and, therefore, also leaves many relatives and dear friends too numerous to mention. In addition to her parents, Gwendolyn is preceded in death by her brother, Donald Gordon. A celebration of Gwendolyns homegoing will take place on Friday, April 4, 2014, 11:00am, at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, 1120 Grand Avenue, with Bishop Lawrence L. Kirby, Sr. officiating. Visitation will be from 10:00am until the time of the service. A private interment will take place at Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery. The family would like to extend a Thank You to the Aurora Cancer Center, Dr. Michael Mullane and his staff, and the staff of Hospice Alliance for the love and care given to Gwendolyn during her time of need. God bless all of you! Draeger-Langendorf Funeral Home and Crematory 4600 County Line Road, Racine, WI 53403 262-552-9000 www.draeger-langendorf.com
