Heaven received their newest angel, Judy B. Jordan, who had a heart of gold on Wednesday, July 22, 2020, at the age of 75, surrounded by family at Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire. She was a joy to be around and loved helping her family.
Judy was born in Ladysmith on Jan. 24, 1945. She grew up and graduated in Bruce. Judy married her high school sweetheart, Daryl Jordan, on June 2, 1962. They were together 60 years, married for 58. They lived life to the fullest and had many wonderful adventures together including Judy wearing Daryl’s “boat” on her ring finger, which he gave her for their 40th wedding anniversary.
Judy loved to travel, especially with Daryl on his motorcycle. They also shot in a couples pool league and played cards with her parents.
One of her favorite things to do was having all of the family together for dinners and celebrations. She loved music, including seeing Elvis in concert and looked forward to Country Fest each year. She enjoyed reading, playing bingo with her sister plus spending time with classmates.
Judy had a passion for being creative whether it was making Care Bears, sewing Halloween costumes, crocheting or decorating her home. She loved to cake decorate and retired from the Eau Claire Wal-Mart as a Cake Decorator.
Judy was a blessing in every way to her family.
