Mary E. Jordan, age 90, of West Peoria, passed away at approximately 2:00 AM on Thursday, August 19, 2021 at Manor Court at Liberty Village of Peoria.
Born August 3, 1931 in Peoria, Illinois, she was the daughter of Howard J. Grawey and Iona E. Kellar Grawey. She was a graduate of Manual High School of Peoria, class of 1949. On June 24, 1950, Mary married John M. Jordan at St. Mark’s Catholic Church. He preceded her in death in 2017.
In early years, Mary was a homemaker, raising their two sons. In later years, she was employed by the Telephone Answering Service, the Physician Access Line Service (PALS), and Dimension Research, where she performed telephone surveys and customer support.
She was a founding member of Holy Family Catholic Church in Peoria, and was active in the Mary and Martha Society, the Church Choir, the Funeral Choir, and the Church quilting group.
Mary was an avid cook, baker and home canner of many fruits and vegetables. She loved going to flea markets and was a dedicated collector of Depression glass. She enjoyed sewing, embroidery, and crocheting. She was a prolific reader of almost anything. She also loved music, and played the piano and the organ, in addition to singing.
She will be remembered as a loving, wife, mother, grandmother, and sister. She is survived by their two sons, John (Diane) Jordan of Dunlap, and James (Tiffany) Jordan of West Peoria; one grandson, Joseph Jordan, of West Peoria; and one sister, Barbara Guldbrandsen, of Marion, Illinois.
