Maude Jordan passed away on February 7, 2018. Born in Kinston, NC, August 28, 1937, she was the daughter of Samuel Capers and Margaret Madden Hammond. Maude was a graduate of Columbia High School. She was the loving wife to her husband of 45 years, the late Lt. Col. Edward Pollock Jordan and was awarded a special accommodation for her unselfish, faithful, devoted and unfailing support by the United States Air Force Chief of Staff.

An avid and voracious reader, she was proposed for a lifetime honorary library card from the United States Library of Congress. Maude loved Jesus with all her heart! She was a lifetime member of Greenlawn Baptist Church and an active member of the McCarter-Gainey Sunday School class. She was a generous and benevolent donor to the Oliver Gospel Mission and to all those in need.

The family would like to graciously acknowledge and thank all her caregivers, especially Sylvia Noble and Tegra Davis, for their unconditional love and support. The family would also like to thank the staff of Compassionate Care Hospice.

Maude was a constant source of strength for and survived by her sons, Edward Bryan Jordan of Houston, Texas, Jeffrey Craig and Laurie Latimer Jordan of Lexington, James Samuel and Lisa Kirkland Jordan of Columbia; daughter, Margaret Frances Jordan Osburn and Wade Ryon Osburn of Lexington; four grand-children, Allison Anne of Lexington, Kathryn Lee Metz and Robert of Lexington, SC, Erin Gay of Columbia, Kirkland Hammond of Columbia; and two great-grandchildren, Dylan Timothy Shytles and Molly Lee Metz. She was predeceased in death by her brother, Samuel (Boots) Hammond.
