Ida Lee Gordon



12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 15, 2020
Evergreen Cemetery - Murfreesboro, TN

Ida Lee Gordon was born on June 8, 1949 to Deacon Carl Sr. and Janie Wade in Walter Hill, Tennessee.

Ida accepted Christ at an early age in life. Ida relocated to Nashville, Tennessee where she met and married the love of her life, Arthur Gordon. Ida was a loving and devoted wife for over 48 years until they both departed this life.

Ida spent the biggest part of her adult life as a foster parent protecting and mentoring the lives of young people. Ida believed that being a foster parent was the calling that God placed upon her life.

Before her passing, Ida decided to rededicate her life to God and once again accepted Christ into her life by joining Church Restored in Old Hickory, Tennessee under the leadership of Pastor Joe Wood, where she worshipped until her departure on December 9, 2020.

Ida is preceded in death by her mother, Janie Wade; father, Deacon Carl Wade Sr.; brothers, Carl Wade Jr. and Thomas Earl Wade; sister, Thelma Wade, devoted husband, Arthur Emeal Gordon; and son, Arthur Lee Gordon.

Ida was a loving foster mother, wife, sister and grandmother.

Ida leaves to cherish her memory: her sons, Timothy Wade, Thomas (Pamela) Wade Sr., Curtis Gordon, Jamal Gordon and Rafael Gordon; sister, Mary Jane Swader; three aunts, Betty Collier, Mary Claybrooks and Mildread MacAdoo; grandchildren, Jeremy, Thomas Jr., Meice, Key'Lain, Artisha, Thomas III, Latasha, Ja'Marcus, Mar'Kaylla, Arthur and De'Mont; five great grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends; and special devoted friend, Ms. Jackie Vinson- Martin.


In efforts to be in compliance with the regulations of the CDC guidelines, mask are required upon entry of the building and temperatures will be checked at the door. This is for the safety of our community as well as our funeral home staff.
