In Memory

Lori Walker (Jordan)

Lori Jean Jordan (Walker), age 60, of Jackson, Michigan passed away on Thursday, February 3, 2022. She was born March 7, 1961.

Lori was a teacher assistant and nurse for youth with developmental disabilities in Jackson, Michigan.  She had a special bond with her students and their families, had a sweet caring nature, positive attitude, infectious laugh, and was adored by everyone who knew her.  She is survived by her husband of 21 years, Ravin Jordan.

After graduating from Albion Senior High School in 1979, Lori attended Kellogg Community College and graduated from Western Michigan University with a bachelor’s degree in science.  She received her certification as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) from Jackson Community college.

Lori worked as an LPN for Foote Hospital for over 30 years and then transitioned to nurse and assistant teacher at Lyle Torrent Center caring for children with special needs.  Lori loved her kids and for her it was more than a job, but rather her life's mission and purpose. She enjoyed taking them to the fair, going swimming, dressing up for holidays and just being there with them. Many times, Lori would drop by their homes just to get some "cuddle time" from them.

She loved spending time with her family and her many friends.  She enjoyed baking, traveling, and taking her momma and grandma to the theater, movies, and plays. Above all, she loved the Lord and she and her husband worshiped daily.
