Suzanne Rae Jordan

Suzanne "Sue" Rae Jordan, age 80, formerly of Mound City, Missouri passed away peacefully in Van Nuys, California on Thursday, December 28, 2017. Sue was born on August 4, 1937 in Springfield, Ohio.

In 1954, Sue was set up on a blind date with Harold Jordan, Sr. - it was April Fool's Day. She fell deeply in love with Harold and they were married on September 8, 1956 in Springfield, Ohio. They then moved to Urbana, Ohio and started a family. They remained in Urbana until 1962 at which time they relocated with their four children to Mound City so Harold could join his father's plumbing and electrical business.

In 1986, Sue and Harold moved to Phoenix, Arizona where she worked as a store clerk before retiring. In 2015, Sue and Harold moved to Woodland Hills, California to be near their daughter, Kim.

Sue enjoyed crocheting and was an avid reader; she also was a member of the Royal Neighbors of America.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Evelyn and Robert Ballentine of Phoenix, Arizona and Gilbert Ray Ake (father) of Springfield, Ohio.

Survivors include Harold L. Jordan Sr. (her husband of 61 years), children Kimberly "Kim" Cecil (Brian), Harold L. "Rusty" Jordan Jr. of Woodland Hills, CA; Teresa "Tracy" Jordan and Scott Jordan (Theresa) of Mound City, MO.; sisters, Kathryn Ballentine Shepherd of Mt. Landing, VA and Judith Ake of Springfield, OH; and 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.
