Geraldine “Jean” Jordan, 94, of Crossett, died September 13, 2020, at her home.
She was born on May 4, 1926, in Monticello to her parents Birtus and Ollie Jeffers Barrett.
Jean was a resident of Crossett most of her life, a member of Magnolia Baptist Church, and a retired bookkeeper.
She was a loving and caring person who also had a feisty personality. Even though she never had a mean bone in her body she always laughed when her children would call her “Mean Jean” the nickname that she loved. She enjoyed playing bridge with her friends, and Skip-Bo with all her grandkids. In the past, Jean enjoyed traveling with her late husband, shopping, and sewing; and although, she did not like to read, she especially loved to read the Bible.
Jean was preceded in death by her parents, and her husband of 56 years Bill Jordan; two sisters, Ima Jean Norrell and Margaret Tippen; and two brothers, Junior and James Barrett.
She is survived by her four children, Billie Fran Watt (Billy Mack), Clatie Jean Houston (Bill), Sherry Vosburg (Bruce), and Gary Wayne Jordan (Suzette); two sisters, Wanda Glover (Glenn) and Sue Jordan; eight grandchildren Tate, Jennifer, Holly, Colby, Jason, Natacia, Brandon, and Josh; 17 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2 p.m., Thursday, September 17, at the Magnolia Baptist Church with Pastor Mike Griffith, officiating. Interment will follow at Egypt Cemetery under the direction of Medders Funeral Home.
Pallbearers are Tate Watt, Colby Houston, Jason Sanders, Taylor Bryant, Garrett Williams, Cody Kelley, Will Bryant, Jordan Houston, and Cole Kelley.
