Susan Marie Jordan


---- — DALLAS — Susan Marie Jordan, 73, Dallas, formerly of Logansport, passed away on Tuesday, May 20, 2014, at her home.

Born June 23, 1940, in Logansport, she lived in Elk Grove Village, Ill., Logansport and Dallas. Susan worked as a teacher in grades one through five for 30 years. She was exceptionally motivated to work with problem and at-risk youngsters. The politics of education convinced her to seek early retirement from teaching. She shifted her energy to Court Appointed Child Advocacy work, which she found very rewarding.

Susan was a member of Calvary Presbyterian Church while in Logansport, serving as an elder and deacon. She was involved in the food-bank outreach programs until moving to Dallas. She served on several local boards and was particularly fond of the Cass County Historical Society. She joined the congregation of Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church late last year.

On Aug. 10, 1963, Susan married Michael K. Jordan, who survives. Also surviving are daughter Dr. Jennifer Ann Jordan and spouse Dr. William P. Adams of Dallas; sons, Eric Michael Jordan and spouse April of Tulsa, Okla., and Jeffrey Blaine Jordan and spouse Lesley of Dallas; and grandchildren Jack Jordan, Emma Jordan, Luke Adams, Brooke Adams, Clint Jordan and Clay Jordan. She is also survived by a brother, Richard A. Brown of Argyle, Wis.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary K. Brown, and father, George A. Brown.

Services will be at a future time and date. Interment will be in Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church Columbarium. Relatives and friends are welcome to access for more information.

Memorial contributions are welcome at, a fundraising effort for cancer research. Susan’s daughter Jennifer will be participating by swimming to raise donations in June for Research in the Dallas area — see the Dallas Mustangs team page. As an alternative, any cancer research program is a worthy choice.
