Hallie Jordan Whittington
AIKEN - Mrs. Hallie Jordan Whittington, 89, widow of the late Collett Blackburn Whittington, Sr., died peacefully on August 1, 2017 at Aiken Regional Medical Center following an extended illness. Heaven has gained the most dedicated mother ever created. She was more than wonderful and the strength of our family
Born in Charleston, West Virginia on December 3, 1927 she was the daughter of the late David & Hattie Fisher Jordan. Mrs. Whittington had made Aiken, South Carolina her home for the last 12 years, with her daughters Shelia Whittington and Dee Dolin who were her main caregivers the past six years. She was a graduate of Sissonville High School and was a member of Grapevine Chapel in Sissonville, West Virginia. She retired from the West Virginia Department of Highways in 1988. Mrs. Whittington was a wonderful mother and grandmother that loved to cook and bake for her family and anyone else that may have stopped by in the neighborhood. She loved watching all sporting events on TV, especially the WVU Mountaineers, Marshall's Thundering Herd, Carolina Gamecocks and The Clemson Tigers! She was an avid reader and still at the age of 89 had a keen mind and great sense of humor. Everyone that met her loved her and she was affectionately known to most as "Nana". She loved her children and they were always her main focus until her granddaughter was born and she became the "apple of her eye".
She leaves behind 2 daughters, Shelia Whittington & Cathie Whittington Adams both of Aiken; 1 son, Collett "Dick" Blackburn Whittington, Jr. of Aiken; two brothers and their wives, Jerry (Kitty) Jordan of Harrisburg, PA and Larry (Kathy) Jordan of Sissonville, WV.; 1 granddaughter, Whitney Jordan Adams of Clemson, SC. Mrs. Whittington is also survived by 3 sister-in laws, along with many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents and husband, Mrs. Whittington was predeceased by four brothers, Oscar, Uhel, Jim and Jack.
