Merle Gordon Obituary
September 7, 1919 - December 18, 2015 Merle Gordon of Laguna Woods passed away on December 18, 2015. Born Merle Rosenbaum to parents Louis and Pearl Rosenbaum in St. Louis in 1919, Merle married Abe Gordon in 1941 and they raised two daughters, Brenda Hoot (Willard) and Helene Gordon (Alan Houser). Merle had six grandsons and six great-grandchildren. Merle is remembered in many ways. With her husband Abe, Merle was a girl scout troop leader, avid camper, international traveler, and devoted mother. Merle was a registered nurse for more than 40 years and an accomplished ceramic artist later in life. Merle had a feisty spirit for life and was a consummate story-teller, inspiring all who knew her to be bold, try something new, and live life to the fullest. She made so many people feel special. We love and miss Merle and will carry her independent spirit with us.
