My sincere condolences to the Jordan family. I wish I would have had the opportunity to meet Betty. After reading her obituary, I discovered that we were related. My great grandmother was Clara Mae Coffelt, Betty's aunt. I can clearly see that Betty was an amazing lady and lived an exceptional life. Your family will find comfort in knowing that she is now with God.

Dear Jordan Cousins. I am so sorry you lost your Mom and Grandma. She was so kind and loving to everyone she met. I was so lucky to have her for an aunt. Love to you all.
