Martha Jean Jordan
Mrs. Martha "Jean" Jordan, age 85, of Villanow Community, in Walker County, Georgia, departed this life Sunday evening, January 12, 2020 at the Erlanger Hospital. Jean was born July 14, 1934 in Dalton, Georgia, a daughter of the late Horace Grady and Bertie Mae Cleary Mullinax, Sr... She was also preceded in death by her husband, Jack Jordan, a daughter and sons-in-law, Sharon and Henry Lumpkin, and Michael Sane and a brother, Grady Mullinax, Jr.
Jean was a 1951 graduate of Valley Point High School. She was our Rock, all of our biggest cheerleader and the first one to let us know when we needed a kick in the butt. Life will be difficult without her, but we know she will be watching over us every second. She was the best mom, grandmother, and great-grandmother any of us could have ever asked for. If you have ever had the privilege to come sit down with us and eat on a Sunday afternoon or a holiday, you know what I mean. She loved each and every one of you just as much as she did us. We can't wait to see you again one day and have you meet us with a big plate of apple pies or an apple sauce cake.
She is survived by her daughters and son-in-law, Rebecca Sane, Patricia and David Rymer; grandchildren, Brandon and Tara Sane, Zack and Tesha Lumpkin, Grant Sane; great-grandchildren, Madi, Mia and Ace Lumpkin, Braelynne Sane and Boston Sane; all of Dalton, GA; and a number of other special friends and family who called her "Grandmother Jean". Her favorite scripture, Philippians 4:13, I Can do all things through Christ which strengthened me.
Services to celebrate the life of Mrs. Jean Jordan will be held Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 2:00 a.m. at Ponders Melrose Chapel with Reverend Tommy Crider officiating. She will be laid to rest at Ponders Whitfield Memorial Gardens with Brandon Sane Grant Sane, Zack Lumpkin, David Rymer, Josh Brackett and Stoney Ponders honored to serve as pallbearers.
