Carol Laverne Jordan, 84, of Port Angeles, passed away on September 27, 2020, with both of her daughters at her side.
Carol was born on September 26, 1936, to Alfred and Montice Jordan, in Newton, Kansas. Carol graduated from high school in Winfield, Kansas, and immediately thereafter, she married John Doane.
They were married for over forty years and had four children: Johnnie, Joe, Jeff and Jaymie. John and Carol moved from the Midwest to Yakima, in 1970, and after briefly living there, she spent the next 49 years in Port Angeles.
Carol was a dedicated mom to all of her children, raising all four of them to go on to accomplish great things. Family came first and was above all else to Carol, a value she instilled in all those around her. The hole left by her absence is impossible to fill.
Carol pursued many interests in her lifetime. She started as a telephone operator, worked as a legal clerk, raised cats and dogs, as well as groomed them for others. She spent a short time selling real estate and had a few small business ventures.
Carol had a love for animals of all kinds and had a variety throughout the years from farm goats to small exotics and most everything in between. In the mid 70s, Carol was instrumental in getting the 4H goat barn built at the Clallam County Fairgrounds.
Carol was predeceased by her mother and father.
She is survived by her former husband, John Doane; her children; multiple grandchildren; great grandchildren; and her brother, Darrel Jordan.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Carol's name to The Alzheimer's Association
or a Pet Rescue of your choice. The family will hold a small memorial service at a later date.
