JORDAN, MARGARET L. Margaret L. Jordan died on August 11, 2014, after a short illness at Yale New Haven Hospital.

Margaret has filled many roles over the years.

She was grateful for the love and friendship of many. Services will be held at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her honor to the Fresh Air Fund, Host Family Program. 633 3rd Avenue 14th floor, New York, New York 10017.
