Theresa Gordon

Augusta, GA – Margaret Theresa Cone Gordon, age 92, entered into rest peacefully at her home on Monday, January 9, 2023.

Theresa’s service to her family and community was exemplary. She provided a constant home to her 12 children, extended family, and friends. In her home, everyone felt welcomed, respected, at ease, and at peace, knowing that she loved and cared for them. Her door stayed unlocked and always inviting, and her wisdom and strength were a beacon for all who knew and loved her. She was a true southerner with traditional values and hospitality, at her core was a deep love for the Lord, and her life was an example that inspired others to invite God into their lives and abide by His will. She will be greatly missed, and always loved by many.
