Mrs. Ellen N. Jordan, 505 Maple avenue, a resident of Wilmette for the past 38 years, passed away at St. Francis hospital Sunday, March 2, after a brief illness.

Services were held Wednesday, March 5, from the residence and burial was Rosehill.

Mrs. Jordan was born in Little Marlow, Buckinghamshire, England, 60 years ago, where she was married in the community to Hubert Jordan on March 31, 1885. They came to the United States in the same year and settled in Wilmette where Mrs. Jordan has resided ever since. Mr. Jordan died some years ago.

Foremost among the community activities in which Mrs. Jordan was keenly interested was "Ye Olde Towne Folkes," an organization of Wilmette pioneers interested primarily in preserving for posterity documents and articles reminiscent of the earlier days in the village.

Mrs. Jordan had nine children, seven of whom survive her: Harry W. Jordan, of Detroit, Mich.; Lynn T., Mrs. Lester Morse, Mrs. John A. McCarthy, Constance, Hubert D., and Donald W. Jordan.
