Donna May Jordan


Donna May Jordan, 83, completed her earthly journey on Monday, May 6, 2019.
The daughter of Earl and Helene (Troy) Morgan, Donna was born on March 27, 1936, in Saybrook Township.
Donna was a graduate of the Lutheran School of Nursing and was employed with Ashtabula General Hospital in Labor and Delivery for ten years; Dr. Jones local pediatrician for ten years and completed her nursing career as Director of Nursing at Ashtabula County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for twenty-years. Donna was a "Nurse's Nurse." She was skilled at her profession and made her patients comfortable. She loved her staff and treated them as family.
Donna and Willie Jordan were married on February 10, 1968, and together they celebrated fifty-one years of love and caring for each other and their families.
Donna was never idle; she was affectionately called "Sarge." Her home was a gathering place for family and friends. Everyone who walked through her door was made to feel like family. Her love for them shone in everything she did. Donna enjoyed reading fiction and was a regular at the Kingsville Library; she would discuss politics with anyone, hoping you would see her side. A wonderful gardener, Donna enjoyed spending time outside in her gardens and watching the birds; it was a wonderful way to spend a day. Will and Donna spent winters in Florida sharing the sunshine.

I am so honored to have met all of you that I did, and that I had the pleasure of caring for Donna. You are an amazing family, and all the words above confirm the feeling I had about her, and exactly how I try to live my life, she was a dear, beloved soul, who I know will be so greatly missed. Much love and prayers to all of you.
