She was a valedictorian graduate of Macedonia-Angelus High School and married her childhood sweetheart, Walker, in 1944. Together they began a lifelong career in the automobile business. It started during World War II when Mr. Jordan bought a car, drove it home on leave, then sold it to a fellow serviceman. After the War they opened a used car business followed by new car franchises in Lancaster, SC, Gastonia, NC and, most notably, Charlotte.
Alice was a member of St. John’s Baptist Church of Charlotte. She was an avid golfer who also enjoyed bridge, gardening, road trips with Walker in their motor home and socializing with her many friends.
The family wishes to thank the staff and caregivers of Southminster Retirement Community as well as Hospice & Palliative Care, Charlotte Region for their cheerful and diligent care of Mrs. Jordan. They also wish to thank Dr. Douglas Aldrich for his devoted friendship with their mother.
A private service will be held for Mrs. Jordan.
In lieu of flowers, the Jordans request memorials be sent to the Alzheimer’s Association, or the charity of one’s choice.
