"I have fought the good fight; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith. II Timothy 4:7 Sarah (Sister) Elizabeth Wilson Gordon departed this life for her heavenly home on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center. She was a loving and devoted Child of God. A virtuous woman, a loyal sister, cousin, and friend. She was respected by many and kept the words of her mouth and meditations of her heart on Christ Jesus always. She loved the Lord and kept him first in all things.
