Elizabeth (Lisa) Jordan, Liz or Lizzie was born October 27, 1970, to the late Matthew Jordan, Sr., and Clara Bell Jordan of New Brunswick, New Jersey, as the youngest of seven. Elizabeth’s battle with her health was long and hard, and she fought a good fight even until the end. Then, on Monday, August 30, 2021, the Lord whispered in her ear to take her flight and enter into His rest.
Elizabeth was born and raised on Powers Street. She never left; this was the home she raised her son and two grandchildren. Liz attended New Brunswick High School in New Brunswick, NJ, graduating with her High School Diploma in 1989. She attended Middlesex County College in Edison, NJ, then she attended and graduated from Sanford-Brown Institute in Iselin, NJ, in 2006 as a Medical Assistant. Over the years, Liz held several jobs before her health became a challenge. Liz loved her family and would affectionately refer to them as Susan (Booty), Aaliyah (Munchie-butt), Alex (Ally Boy), Zsameir (Zsa), Amelia (Boobi), and Serrenah (Monster). Meanwhile, Garth always referred to Liz as (Big Foot). Her family is going to miss her dearly.
Liz was a member of her childhood church Antioch Christian Church in New Brunswick, NJ, where she accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and was baptized. She would later join Ebenezer Baptist Church after the passing of her father, Matthew Jordan, Sr., as a way to honor him. Liz was an active member of the Ebenezer Adult Church Choir. She enjoyed serving in their Soup Kitchen on Saturdays, handing out food, winter coats, and supporting her Ebenezer family. Liz enjoyed attending Church, whether at Ebenezer Baptist Church or the House of Prayer & Evangelism in Bound Brook, NJ. Both churches offered Liz warmth, love, and fellowship, which drew her to keep coming back.
Liz had a heart of servitude, and she was protective of her family. She was best known for her giggles and infectious laugh. You did not have to say much to get her laughing, smiling, and giggling because it was naturally in her DNA. Liz had a wonderful childhood laughing and being humored by her three older brothers. She loved them immensely, and they were there to help her in any way possible. Liz had a heart of gold, and she loved people. One of the things Liz had her heart set on doing was to prepare sandwiches to serve the New Brunswick homeless community out of her pocket.
Elizabeth was preceded in death by her loving parents Matthew Jordan, Sr., Clara Bell Jordan, and her twin sisters Denise and Rochell Jordan. Maternal grandparents Jim and Mary Alice Thaddies, Paternal grandparents Claude and Lettie Jordan. She leaves behind one son, Alex Jaleel Jordan, and four siblings, Matthew (Marie) Jordan, Claude (Charlene) Jordan, Norman, and Susan (Garth) Thompson. Grand-children Aaliyah Jordan, Zsameir Jordan, Amelia Belle Jordan, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
