Obituary of Marva L Gordon

Marva Lorraine Gordon was born on July 13, 1947, to the late Louis Co and Isabelle (Darius) Talley in Pennsauken, NJ. On March 31, 2022. Marva was summoned by her Heavenly Father, and she quietly left her earthly dwelling to her heavenly home. Marva was the 2nd oldest of ten siblings, Vivian, Mary, Patricia, Louis Wayne, Yvonne, Kenneth, Diane, Rita, and John. Marva formal education was in the Camden School Systems. She completed the GED Program and continued her studies at Glassboro State College. Marva graduated from with a BA in Social Work and Psychology. She worked at the NJ Employment Office. She retired from the State of NJ Work Force Program, where she also served as shop steward. Marva accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in the early 1990’s at Harris Temple A.M.E. Zion Church. She joined Love Fellowship Tabernacle in 1994. She was a faithful servant to her Lord, to her church and to her pastor. Marva was president for the Nurse’s and Usher Board. She served on the Pastor Aide and Trustee Board. She was an Ordained Deaconess, Founder of Love Fellowship Senior Citizen Ministry and wherever she was needed. Marva raised five boys, Evertte, Ernest. Jr., Terrell, Danny, and Maurice. At some point in time, Marva provided temporary shelter for all of her nieces, nephews, cousins, foster children, and grands. “If I can help somebody as I pass along, then my living shall not be in vain.” All who knew Marva knew she loved God 1st and her family next. She made it a point to bring her family to the Talley Family Reunions. She wanted them to experience the family love, know their family and embrace the rich heritage and legacy left by Ma and Pa Moses. Marva was never on time. Time meant nothing as she poured herself into others. Sharing the word of God, hearing your deepest sorrows, and praying with you. Listening to God’s word and gospel praises on the radio was her past-time. And above all, loving and doing all she could for her family. She never ended a conversation without saying “I love you and I’m praying for you.” Marva leaves many to cherish his memories. Three sons, Ernest, Danny (Stacy) and Maurice. 14 Grands Sherri, Tiara, Ciera, Timothy, Dashon, Danell, Otto, Shakera, DahQuan, Shamera, Jhamauri, Saniyah, Isaac and Malani. 17 Great-grands and 2 Great, great-grands. Sisters Mary Anderson, Patricia White, and Yvonne Talley. Brothers Kenneth and John Talley. A host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. God children, John Talley, and Candance Atkins. Close friends Beverly and Jane. Marva was preceded in death by siblings Vivian Swift, Louis Wayne, Diane, and Rita Talley. Brother-in-law Sam Anderson and close friend Judith Crenshaw.
