Paulan Gordon Legacy

Tru here.  ((It might take a while to load, since this page has many embedded VIDEO Links.))

i received the announcement at 11am my time.  Paulan passed from this life on 02 Oct 2021.

When i think of Paulan, i think of someone
quietly helpful and full of grace; Graceful in action and attitude.

.

Paulan Gordon in her own words:

“I have always had a passion for learning. This can be seen by my excellent High School performance (graduated 1 year early), excellent college performance (graduated Summa Cum Laude), promotions from Fidelity Investments (salary from $16K to 80K) and certification process (5 years) as an independent travel consultant.

Even though I now have a diagnosis of moderate vascular dementia I participate and host a couple of memory cafes for Dementia Mentors. I mentor a couple of women in this group.

I have also published a short booklet called “Vascular Dementia – An Inside Perspective”.”
— ((by Paulan Gordon on Linked-In))

Paulan chose these descriptors for her FaceBook profile:
“Mentor for those diagnosed with dementia,
author, member of DAA Advisory Board and Board of Directors” .

Susan made many videos for dementia mentors which can be found at dementiamentors.org videos. The videos can be sorted alphabetically so that you can easily find Susan’s. You can also find Susan’s contribution to Dementia Action Alliance on their web page, daanow.org. We will all miss her deeply. I do not yet have any information on Susan’ memorial.
