SHELAGH GORDON Our world is a smaller place today without our Shelagh, who left us suddenly on Monday, February 13, 2012. Our rock, our good deed doer, our tradition keeper, our moral compass. Beloved daughter of Susan Gordon and the late David Gordon, sister to Heather, Cynthia and Susan. Loving aunt and mother to Jessica (Christian), Caitlin, Evan (Emma), Matthew, Lucy and Sophie. Sister-in-law of Jay, Mark and Dave. Dog Mom to Jerzy and Cari. Special friend to Andy and Ellen. Shelagh will live on in the memories of her large and loving community of family and friends. A memorial service to celebrate Shelagh's life will be held at the MOUNT PLEASANT CEMETERY VISITATION CENTRE, 375 Mt. Pleasant Road, Toronto (east gate entrance, north of St. Clair Ave., 416-485-5572), on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 1:30 p.m., with a reception to follow on site. In lieu of flowers, if you wish, please make a donation to the animal welfare charity of your choice. "And I feel above me the day - blind stars waiting for their light, for a time, I rest in the grace of the world and I am free."
