August 13, 1919 - January 20, 2021
Margaret Terry Jordan, 101, passed away on January 20, 2021 at home. She was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, Warren Boyd Jordan and by her son, Warren Boyd Jordan, Jr. (Lesa). She is survived by her daughters, Meredith Jordan Jennings (Donald), Charlotte, NC and Meg Jordan Murray (Richard, deceased) Little Rock. Her beloved grandchildren are Allison Jennings Garfinkel, Jordan Baylor Jennings, Warren Boyd Jordan, III, Allison Nokes, Taylor Moseley, Lauren Peterson, Chris Proctor (deceased), Alan Murray, Meredith Murray Newton and Jordan Murray. Margaret had 14 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Clare Terry Stallings, Memphis. A life-long Memphian, Margaret was born August 13, 1919 to Margaret and Clarence Oscar Terry. She was proud of her heritage that started in 1877 when her grandfather, Robert A. Terry, built a home on what is now Vollintine Avenue. A dairy and hundreds of acres were added until it was known as Terrytown. Margaret attended Belhaven College and Memphis Art Academy, then married Warren in 1941. They were devoted members of First Baptist Church where her services included leadership in the WMU and managing the church library. She was a member of Coterie for many years and served as its president for a term. She was employed by the public library system for 11 years. Frequent family outings to the Gulf coast and to Pickwick Lake delighted her almost as much as her travels abroad. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to First Baptist Church, 200 East Parkway N, Memphis, TN 38112. Graveside service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Friday Jan. 29th at Memorial Park Funeral Home & Cemetery, 5668 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN.
