LEWISTON — Lillian L. Jordan, 84, of Sabattus passed away May 16, at Marshwood Nursing Center after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s.

She was born Feb. 1, 1933, in Oxford, a daughter of Arthur Pollard and Florence Canwell Pollard. She was one of 12 children, and attended Oxford schools.

Lillian devoted her time taking care of her six children and baby-sitting for other children.

She later spent several years as a cook at Head Start in Colchester, Conn., and many years as an assistant cook at Arbor Acres in Glastonbury, Conn.

Her real love was camping, fishing and traveling in our motor home to Tennessee, Branson, Mo., Arizona and many other places.

She was loved by her family and many friends. Lillian is survived by her husband of 64 years, Romeo Jordan of Sabattus; two sisters, Cenis Turcotte of Auburn and Florence Crowell of China; six children, Sandra Rankl of Manchester, Conn., Brenda Bragshaw and husband, Bill, of East Hartford, Conn., Linda Billiel of Colchester, Conn., David Jordan and wife, Jean, of East Hampton, Conn., Kathy Caldwell of Buckfield, Gary Jordan and his companion, Michelle Mathies, of Norway; 12 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren.

Lillian was predeceased by her parents, four sisters, and five brothers.

The family would like to extend a very special thanks to the staff at Marshwood Center Genesis Healthcare for the services they provided to Lillian for four years.
