Bonnie Owen Gordon Obituary
Gordon, Bonnie Owen
Bonnie Owen Gordon was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island on March 18, 1958, the second daughter of Shirley Bury Gordon, of Providence, and the late Henry (Hank) Augustus Gordon, Jr. She died unexpectedly in her Tiverton home on September 1, 2018 at the age of 60. She lived most of her life in Rhode Island. Bonnie's light was a beacon that shone brightly. It illuminated her path and all who walked beside her. Sweet music flowed from her heart as a songwriter, vocalist, pianist, and artist. Her two CDs, the first one titled "Bonnie Gordon" and the second, "This Modern World", uniquely captured her soulful lyrics. She inherited her musical talent from her parents, Shirley and Hank. She enjoyed making music with them very much. She and her Dad cheerfully played music as a dynamic duo whose sparkling eyes brought joy to the world. Bonnie's creativity was not only expressed in music but also through her line of artisanal jewelry. Nature brought her home spiritually and she was especially attuned to the rhythm of the ocean. Compassion, kindness, and generosity describe Bonnie well. Her gentle charisma was especially felt through her smile, laughter, and sparkle. She was beautiful inside and out. Her spirit will always live on in the beauty that surrounds us.
She will be missed very much by many including her mother, Shirley, her sisters Heather Fox and Carrie Coren, her brother Adam Gordon, her beloved fiancé, Paul Shaw, of San Diego, California, her cousin, Patience Thomas, of Louisville, Colorado, and their families, as well as by her devoted cat, Harvey.
Friends and family are invited to remember and celebrate Bonnie's life on Saturday, October 20th, from 12pm to 3pm at the Boat House Restaurant, 227 Schooner Drive, Tiverton, RI 02878. A lunch will be served.
