Surviving are a brother, Harold Gordon, Jr. and his wife, Joyce of Orrington; a sister, Hope Delia and her husband, Danny of New York; a daughter, Valerie Butler and her husband, Philip of Plymouth and by a son, John Myrick of Bangor; two grandchildren, Tanya and Eric; three great grandchildren, Isaac, Drew and Madilynn; several nieces and nephews. Tessie’s family gratefully thanks the staff of Colonial Acres in Lincoln for their excellent care.
