Mary Donna JordanPink RoseMary Donna Jordan, 70 of Prospect died Sunday, November 29, 2020 at home surrounded by her loving family after a twenty-three day battle with two separate stage four cancers.

She was born November 15, 1950 in Mt. Vernon to the late Mary Elizabeth (Miller) and Donald R. Fown. She was also preceded in death by a sister Susan D. Fown, nephew William M. Gatshall, great-granddaughter, Tamyra C. Jordan, and a sister-in-law, Judith Fown.

Donna was raised in LaRue, a 1968 graduate of Elgin High School. She married Murl D. Jordan of Prospect on November 22, 1968 at St Joseph's Catholic Church in LaRue. They were married for 52 years.

She lived in different places such as KS, WA, LA, Germany, and Europe.

Murl, Little Murl, and Courtney
Tonight, when you look up, don't think of them as stars. Think of them as porch lights, welcoming your loved one safely home. Sending you thoughts of peace during your time of sorrow.
Hugs, Betty, Sue, and David Johnston
