Alyssia Marie Bernice Gordon

| June 11, 2024

Alyssia Marie Bernice Gordon, 17, of Coshocton, passed away suddenly due to an accident on Saturday, June 8, 2024. She was born in Coshocton, Ohio to Melissa Gordon on January 11, 2007.

Alyssia worked very hard to graduate a year early so she could join the United States Air Force. She graduated from both the Coshocton County Career Center Automotive Technology Program and from Coshocton High School on May 24, 2024.

While in school she was on both the Coshocton Girls Basketball Team and the Coshocton Girls Soccer Team. Alyssia had a smile that could light up a room and an infectious laugh that is still heard today. She never met a stranger and helped anyone in need. Her love, encouragement and positivity will always be remembered. She also had the “Gift of Gab” and could tell a joke like no other.

She is survived by her loving mother, Melissa Gordon; her sister and brother, Ashlyn and Bryce and half-sister, Sandra Stokes; Aunts and Uncles, Alta Mattocks, Gina (Justin) Shearn, Michael (Ashlee) Gordon and Christian Davlin; cousins, Justin Jr. and Olivia Shearn, and Zoee and Haden Gordon. Grandma, Jodi Gordon, Bea Martin, Sue Gordon and Granny, Sarah Stanley; close family friends, Misty and Alexis Meek and Christina and Olivia; along with many other loving friends.

She was preceded in death by her loving Grandpa, Don Gordon Jr., her Father, Steven Johnson and her Great-Grandpa, Don Gordon Sr.
