Dorothy Gordon celebrating her 103rd Birthday with family.

Dorothy Binder Gordon '33 celebrated her 103rd birthday on June 5, 2013. A birthday party was thrown for her by her family including her 3 children, 4 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren. Her children are all teachers, which is natural as Mrs. Gordon and her husband were both in the field. She taught 6th grade in Fanwood, N.J. She stopped working when she began her family and subbed in the schools when the children were older.

One of Ms. Gordon's sons, Robert "Bob" Gordon, shared his remarks on his mother's milestone birthday: "In world where most people do not last past 80, she has lived a long, happy, and healthy life, and she is still enjoying it."
