Marcile F. Gorder

Marcile F. Gorder

Marcile was born on Oct. 28, 1946, to Ivy and Lois Furness. Marcile grew up in Teton, Idaho, and graduated from St. Anthony High School. After graduating, she moved to Utah to do several odd and end jobs and help her oldest sister. This is how she met and fell in love with her best friend. She married her lifelong love, Gail Gorder, on Jan. 24, 1976. They enjoyed a lifetime of love and laughter and made many great memories together. Her biggest accomplishment was being the best stay at home mom and raising her two daughters, Kelly and Janet. 

Mom had many hats, from primary teacher to mink farm worker. After raising her girls, she devoted her time to selling Avon and being the Meals on Wheels driver for Morgan County. Some of mom’s favorite things included horseback riding until she physically couldn’t anymore and going camping at Lazy S, where she always seemed to be in her element like she was born a century too late. 

Mom passed peacefully on Feb. 15, 2023. She is survived by her husband, Gail, of 46 years; daughters Kelly (Brian) Jamieson; Janet (Austin) LaRue; stepchildren Mike (Tracy) Gorder, Wendy Guilt and Suzanne Wiese; along with 13 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren and one on the way; along with her sister Barbara Jenkins, and several nieces, nephews and cousins. She is preceded in death by her two grandsons, Kevin Gorder and Eddie LaRue, three sisters, one brother and her parents. 

Graveside services will be held on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2023, at 11 a.m. at the Milton Cemetery. A viewing will be held on Friday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Milton Church at 1255 N. Morgan Valley Drive.
