JORDAN – Dolores Ruth

February 9, 1930 – June 7, 2011

Dolores Ruth Jordan, passed away peacefully Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at the age of 81 years.

Dolores was predeceased by her mother, Matilda (Jordie) and father, Robert Jordan. She is survived by first cousins, Delphine Purdy and Brian Ehly. Dolores was born in Calgary and raised for most of her formative years in and around Grande Prairie, AB. She lived briefly in Vancouver, B.C., where she was a Flight Attendant. Upon her return to Calgary, Dolores excelled at executive secretarial positions until her health led her to retire at an early age. She will be loving remembered for her courage and strength, sense of humour, delightful smile, and friendly personality. Dolores will be dearly missed by her close friends and caregiver, Karima. At her request no funeral service was held. Interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Calgary, AB. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    It has been some time since our last visit together and, at that time, Dolores was a very vibrant and radiant young woman. We will remember her that way. The years are not always kind, but the Dolores we knew never complained. Ironically, my brother Arthur Alexander, passed away shortly before Dolores. It is difficult to say the final good-bye.

    Dolores was my mother’s (Shirley Desjardins) first cousin. They each were living the other’s life. In 1956 Dolores survived a plane crash during her time as a flight attendant. She was one of 15 survivors of the DC4 crash in August 1956 in Cold Bay, Alaska. The story hit the front pages of Air Force Times. My mother saw the article when we were living in Northern Japan where my father was stationed. I did not know her last name and am sorry to hear she passed so recently.
