Billie Wyvonne (Von), made her trip home to join the Lord she loved so much on November 28th. Von was born September 3rd, 1936 in Hobbs, New Mexico, to Benny and Veda Cox. She graduated from Lubbock High School in 1954, and was married to Kenneth (Ken) E. Gordon on June 2nd, 1956. Her husband, Ken; son, Philip; mother, Veda; her sons’ grandfather, M.B. and her grandson, Kristian all precede her in death. Von’s devotion was her family. She followed Ken as his job took the family to several cities in West Texas and finally the Metroplex in 1980. Here she worked for a private oil company in Dallas for 15 years. She served as Den Mother, Home Room Mother, and many other roles that only a Mother would love. Mama/Mimi loved her grandchildren and cherished having them live close to her house so cookies, Christmas candy, and brownies could be made and enjoyed by all. Von always had a welcoming smile and gracious way with her friends and strangers. She participated in helping our troops by providing care packages that were sent overseas. She was an active member of the Lord’s Family at the Prestoncrest Church of Christ and loved time spent with many of her dear sisters in Christ there. She will be missed by all who knew her.
