CAPPY LOVE HANSON GORDON May 12, 1946 – Feb. 8, 2019

Cappy was born in California on May 12, 1946 and passed away in Douglas, Arizona on February 8, 2019.

She is survived by her husband and dearest love, Dennis Gordon.

She came to New Mexico in 1988 and lived primarily in Los Alamos until she and Dennis moved to southern Arizona in 2004. She loved the Sangres and the Jemez, and hiking and snowboarding. She loved birds and animals and filled her life with them. She was an avid birder.

Above all, she loved the music and magic of words; she was an award winning, published poet and author.

Cappy was a kind and openhearted friend and generous with her time for other writers. She is deeply loved and sorely missed by friends in New Mexico, Arizona, and throughout the country.

A memorial gathering will be held on Sunday, March 31, 12:00 pm—3:00 pm at the American Legion Fred Hilburn Post 11, 1325 N. G Avenue, in Douglas, Arizona. A memorial is planned in New Mexico later in spring.
