LAMOINE — Nancy E. (Boynton) Jordan, 72, passed peacefully Aug. 20, 2011, at her daughter’s home in Lamoine after only a couple months of battling cancer. Born May 11, 1939, in Boston, Mass., daughter of Jerome E. and Addie (Ryder) Boynton.
She worked in the seafood industry from the time she could walk, from delivering seafood for her Dad to processing it herself, right up until she retired. Nancy was always on the go. Nothing could slow her down. Once retired she moved into Meadow View Apartments, where she met and made so many friends. From then on she devoted herself and time to taking care of many of the residents there. From nursing them to running errands, she was always on the go. Such a loving and caring person, Nancy always put everyone else first. She is and will be missed deeply.
She is survived by her children, Pamela Jordan of Lamoine, Diane and Walter Covey of Lamoine, Mike and Elaine Kelley of Florida; her grandchildren, whom she loved with all her heart, Alicia Briggs and Greg Murray, Eric Briggs and wife, Rain, Mike and Holly Kelley, Stacy and Walter Covey Jr., Tracy Robles; also seven great-grandchildren; her siblings, Harold and Nancy Boynton, Russell and Doreen Boynton, and Joanne Lambdin, all of Lamoine. She was predeceased by her husband, Lawrence “Buddy” V. Jordan Jr.; and her sister, Dottie (Boynton) Harvey.
At the request of Nancy and her family there will be no calling hours. A private service will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to Cancer Care of Maine, Eastern Maine Charities, P.O. Box 931, Bangor, ME 04402 in memory of Nancy E. Jordan.
