Margaret "Margi" Elizabeth Gordon

August 19, 1936 ~ September 16, 2019 (age 83)


Margaret Elizabeth (“Margi”) Gordon passed away September 16, 2019 peacefully at Cottesmore Life Care in Gig Harbor, Washington. Margi was born on August 19, 1936 in Spokane, Washington. She was the daughter of Charles Gordon and Midred Crofoot. Margi’s early life was filled with adventure as her family moved around. Of the many places she lived, Margi always called the Pacific Northwest home. She married her childhood sweetheart, George David Nielsen, on February 12, 1955. They raised a clan of six children and instilled that joy for adventure in them all.  Margi’s greatest joy was being Nana to her 17 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren, all of whom cherish the love and lessons she taught them. Margi was pre-deceased by her eldest son, George Anthony (“Tony”) Nielsen, and is survived by Terri (Mike) Herring of Chehalis, Diane Mollet of Lacey, Chuck (Lin) Nielsen of Oak Harbor, Joan (Carl) Young of Lacey, Sheryll (Brian) Lomheim of Tacoma. Margi will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her, as she had a profound impact on everyone she met.
