Dolores Marie Hedrich Gordon was born on February 14, 1931 in Tonawanda, NY to Charles and Viola Hedrich. In 1950 she married Donald C. Gordon of Buffalo, NY and they had three children: Gregory, Bruce and Debra. In 1963 the family moved to Oakdale, CT and put down permanent roots in that community.
Dolores and Donald were introduced to the Unification Movement by their daughter in 1975 and when Dolores’ husband joined after attending three, seven, and 21-day workshops in Barrytown, NY, she joined with him. Together they did what they could to dispel the negative image that media portrayed of our movement at a time when few parents were able to accept True Parents. They attended the first Washington Monument rally, as well as Yankee Stadium and were always ready to write a letter or attend an event in order to build bridges and promote True Parents work. On August 25, 1995, Dolores and her husband Donald, along with their son Gregory and his wife Michiy Kobayashi, and their daughter Debra and her husband John Sand received the Marriage Blessing in the 360,000 Couples Blessing.
Dolores and her husband were avid supporters of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony where she helped her husband run the Citrus Sale fund raiser for 15 years. She and Don were lifetime members of the Quaker Hill Rod and Gun Club. These two always went hand in hand and people often commented on the radiance of their love and devotion to each other.
With the Connecticut and Rhode Island churches so far away, they invested themselves locally and were active members of the Mohegan Congregational Church in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Dolores Marie Hedrich Gordon ascended on Thursday, February 1, 2018 at 6:58 AM to join her husband Donald who had ascended in November of 2016. Dolores suffered a massive stroke on November 10, 2017, which left her paralyzed on her left side. Though initially not expected to survive, she rallied and had been making some progress in rehab but suffered a second stroke on January 27, 2018 from which she never regained consciousness.
Dolores’ Seonghwa Ceremony was held at the Dallas Family Church on February 14, 2018. Condolences and donations can be sent to the family via Debbie Sand at 534 Wentworth Dr., Richardson, TX 75081. For more information, you can contact Debbie or John by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
