Eileen A. Jordan, born Eileen Angus Curran, on May 28, 1926, in Grand Falls, Canada, died peacefully in her sleep Wednesday, March 19, 2014, at Harrington Court in Colchester.
She immigrated to the states following in her sister's footsteps where she met and married Edward William Jordan. She and Ed were longtime residents of South Windsor, where they raised their five children. She loved to dance, entertain, and be the life of the party.
She is survived by her five children and their spouses; 11 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.
She was known as Nana to all of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and passed away quietly after months of declining health surrounded by her family. She will be remembered for her hospitality, her love of children, her famous meatballs, and her unique sense of style. She was beloved as matriarch of the Jordan clan and will be missed terribly by all.
A Mass will be held at St. James Church, Manchester, on Saturday, March 29, 2014, at 10 a.m.
Instead of flowers the family requests that donations be made to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
