Nancy Lee (Davidson) Jordan

Austin, TX

Nancy Lee (Davidson) JordanJanuary 29, 1935 - February 21, 2024Nancy Jordan passed quietly Wednesday the 21st of February after an extended struggle with dementia. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack G. Jordan, also of Midland, her son, Craig A. Jordan of Dallas and her sister, Nina L. Thompson of Fort Collins, Colorado. She is survived by her son, Michael D. Jordan and his wife, Grace S. Jordan and their children, Catherine Jordan and her husband, Joshua B. Jordan, Madeline Jordan and Craig Jordan’s son, Sean Jordan.Nancy spent most of her living years in service to others. Her participation with many community organizations on both a volunteer and staff basis brought her joy. She served as the volunteer secretary to the board of the United Way for several terms. After this, she joined Lutheran Social Services of Texas where she organized and supplied Lifeline services to the elderly in Midland and several adjacent counties so they could reach emergency services easily. After Lutheran Social Services, Nancy joined the board of Casa de Amigos in Midland and served for multiple terms before she was asked to be interim executive director while the board conducted a search for the permanent director. Once the interim role concluded, Nancy stayed on as a secretary to the director, retiring in 2013. Upon retirement, Nancy moved to the Austin area to be closer to family. She loved being close to her two granddaughters and they loved having her nearby. For 44 years, Nancy was a member of First Presbyterian Church of Midland and served on several committees, many of them focused on helping others. One of her earlier contributions was as a member of the Chrismon committee, making the Christmas ornaments for the sanctuary Christmas trees by hand. It was during her time on this committee that she developed a way to prevent natural Christmas trees from dropping too many needles. Her secret was to find a willing church member and place the trees in their swimming pool for a weekend, which allowed the tree to soak up water and drop fewer needles for the season. Nancy was part of the Nominating, Church Library, Missions and Local Missions committees and worked as a division leader for the adult Bible studies. She later moved to the Christian Education committee where she served for several years. In 1996 she was nominated and served as a Deacon for the 1999 class. She was nominated again in 2006. Nancy had a love for travel. She and her younger sister, Nina would travel to Europe and all over the US as well as taking several cruises together. Nancy always would bring back great stories of their adventures while away. Shortly after, the next trip was already in the planning stages. Her love for travel was second only to her love of making things. The Chrismons were only a small part of the work she did making things for others. Nancy sewed many of her own clothes for many years as well as clothing for her family. Giving clothes new life, mending still usable clothing from the family to make it suitable for donation to families in need. She also loved needlepoint, making a treasured Christmas stocking for each member of the family and many beautiful framed needlepoint prints. She would often combine these two crafts and create clothing with needlepoint accents that made them truly one of a kind outfits. Most evenings, Nancy would be working on a current project in her favorite chair as she listened to the TV. More than any of these Nancy loved God and her family. In everything she did, she was a living model of Jesus’ call to “Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:37) and to “Love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:38). Nancy had a servant’s heart throughout her life and we are certain that Jesus welcomed her home, saying “Well done, my good and faithful servant” (Luke 19:17).Services will be held graveside at Resthaven Cemetery at 11am, March the 2nd. Dr. Steve Schorr of First Presbyterian Midland, officiant. All are welcome.In lieu of flowers, the family would welcome donations to your local Hospice or dementia support agency.
