Gordon Snow
PEKIN - Gordon M. Snow, 75, of Pekin passed away at 9:22 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 4, 2013, at the OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home in Peoria. He was born June 2, 1938, in Watseka to Gordon H. and Elsie I. (Minier) Snow. He married Janie Herron on July 19, 1994, in Pekin. She survives. Also surviving are three daughters, Laura (Rob) Adamski of Springfield, Teresa (Duke) Sayles of Pekin and Tammy (Steve) Bushong of Peoria; one son, Gordon D. (Beth) Snow of Dubai; 10 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Sheryl (O.B.) Pace of Sterling and Trisha Snow of Springfield. He was preceded in death by his parents.
