By | Obituaries

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Frances Jordan, 89, of Saratoga Springs, passed away peacefully on March 18 at Saratoga Hospital, surrounded by her loved ones.

Born on May 15, 1924, Frances was the daughter of the late Frank and Mary DeVivo. She was a lifelong resident of Saratoga Springs, graduated from St. Peter’s Academy and was married to the late Francis Jordan.

She worked for her uncle, who was a tailor, and was employed at Skidmore College and at General Electric. A stay-at-home mom for several years, she later became a billing clerk at Saratoga Hospital, in which she took great pride.

A lifelong member of St. Peter’s Catholic Church, she also had volunteered at the former St. Peter’s Academy on Broadway. An accomplished seamstress, she enjoyed growing roses and caring for her home and family.

She is survived by two of her four sisters; Antoinette Van Wie and Carmel Parisi, both of Saratoga Springs.

She is joining her two other sisters, Rose LaPlante and Marie Grolley, who both passed away before her. Other survivors include her son, James Jordan and his wife Kelly Jordan and her daughter, Mary Jordan and her husband, Dennis Grolley; four grandchildren, Benjamin Jordan, Andrea Burton, Katie Grolley and Roxanne Grolley; and one great-granddaughter, Emma Rose Burton, all of whom she adored.

A family Catholic burial service was conducted in St. Peter’s Cemetery and there were no public calling hours.

Memorials may be made in her name to the Saratoga Hospital Care Foundation, 211 Church St., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.

Arrangements were under the direction of Thomas Simone and the staff of William J. Burke & Sons/Bussing and Cunniff Funeral Homes of 628 North Broadway 584-5373.
