Mary Ann Jordan of Norwell, age 71, passed on All Saints Day, Nov. 1, 2018, survived by her loving husband Robert Jordan, her children Tara Finn and husband Brendon, Dr. Ashley Jordan, and Shane Jordan, as well as her fury companions Pattycake, Baby, and Roxi.
For those of you who knew Mary Ann, she could only be described as the fashionista of the South Shore. She was always was the life of the party and the center of attention regardless of the crowd. Her spirt and positive attitude was like no other. She was courageous in battling both breast and lung cancer. She never let her illnesses define her, keeping a positive outlook regardless of hardship that lay before her.
Happily married for 38 years, she and her husband, Bobby were still madly in love. They were best friends who joked and laughed with each other constantly. They loved to travel, visit friends and had a passion for sports and politics.
Her children were the light of her life as she was theirs. MaryAnn was so proud of all of her children’s accomplishments and bragged about them to all whom she met. The three of them all display a little “MaryAnn” in their own special way.
Her love of shopping lead her to be a celebrity at TJ Maxx – known by all employees as the most dedicated customer. Her closet is proof of her love of clothes but she always had an item in her shopping cart for one of her children, husband or friends whom she loved to spoil.
A loyal friend she remained close to all of her Weymouth neighborhood friends even after her move to Norwell. She loved entertaining in her elaborately decorated home or meeting one of her “girls” for lunch.
She loved animals of all kinds but her furry “babies”, Patty cake, Baby & Roxy brought her joy daily. Born and raised in New York, she remained a loyal fan, rooting for the NY Knicks as well as the Yankees, despite being surrounded by die hard Boston fans. She missed her family in New York dearly but kept in touch and always was up to date with the latest news.
Our hearts are broken and we will never be complete without her. Passing on All Saints day she’s certainly an Angel looking down from above. In fact, the most beautiful and best dressed Angel in Heaven.
