From the Daily Press - 11/07/20:
Gertrude Liverman Jordan
NEWPORT NEWS - With her family
by her side, Gertrude Liverman Jordan passed away on November 3, 2020
following a year of suffering head injuries from falls a number of times
during the year.
Born in Mavsel in Clay Co., West Virginia on August 7, 1935, she moved to Newport News at age 11 following her dad's release from the U.S. Army. She attended Newport News High and married her husband, Paul Jordan in 1953.
Spending a large portion of the early years on her grandparent's farm, she learned the values of family, hard work and skills of a homemaker. She became an excellent cook from working with her grandmother and mother in those skills. Gertrude was there for her parents and her own three children her entire adult life, always the devoted daughter and mother until the end.
The last 25 years of her life were devoted to caring for her elderly parents and then her oldest daughter, Donna, that developed a host of medical related problems.
In the retirement years, she would enjoy collecting and reading cookbooks as she and Paul were able to travel the country. She enjoyed working in her flower garden, feeding her birds and squirrels, watching the butterflies, etc., and enjoying the neighbors that would often visit for a chat. A good solid lady, she will certainly be missed as a good neighbor.
proceeded in death by her parents, Henry and Selina Liverman; her brothers,
Leroy and Johnnie; and sister, Annabell Ramsey. She is survived by her husband,
Paul Jordan; daughters, Donna Alford and Trudy White; son, David Jordan;
grandsons, William Alford and James Connor; and step-grandchildren, Brad White
and Courtney White.
Gertrude was a member of the Fox Hill Baptist Church.
The family would like to express many thanks to the Riverside Hospice for the loving care.
In lieu of flowers or other forms of condolences, the family requests that donations be made to Riverside Hospice.
Society of Virginia is assisting the family. View and post condolences on our online guestbook at
Our sincerest condolences are extended to Gertrude's family and friends at this difficult time.
Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol

Morning Has Broken
Words: Eleanor Farjeon
Music: Traditional Gaelic
1. Morning has broken like the first morning;
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word!
2. Sweet the rain's new fall sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.
3. Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation; praise ev'ry morning,
God's recreation of the new day!
