Marjorie was born July 9, 1918, in Leggett, Polk County, the eighth of 10 children of James Edward Malone and the Bernice Jacquinta Calliham. She moved to Fort Worth, where she met Leslie Maurice Jordan and formed a love affair for the ages. They married Oct. 1, 1938, and would have celebrated 70 years of marriage this year. The couple settled in Richland Hills in 1946. Both learned to fly and Les began a distinguished career as a pilot with American Airlines. They raised two children, Norma Beth Haynes and Leslie Maurice Jordan Jr., both of whom followed their father to careers at American Airlines. The couple have been members of Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth for 69 years.
Margie was intensely patriotic and that, combined with her love of genealogy and of service to youth, led her to a lifelong leadership role in the Texas Society, Children of the American Revolution. Her gracious and gentle guidance benefitted countless Texas youngsters over the years. She served a term as senior state president of the organization. In addition, she was an active member and officer of both the Mary Isham Keith Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Julia Jackson Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy.
In her later years, Marjorie served as adminstrator of the North Central Civic Ballet, a role that again called on her unparalleled talents as a mentor and role model for young people.
She will be missed as an adored wife, beloved mother and grandmother, friend, confidante and adviser.
Survivors: Her husband, Les Jordan Sr.; her children, Beth and Jim Haynes of Fort Worth and Les and Renee Jordan of Richland Hills; grandchildren, Leslie Maurice Jordan III, Raymond Eliah Jordan, Andrew Jordan Haynes and Keith Alexander Mills; and many devoted nieces and nephews.
