The brightest star in the firmament will forevermore be the light from Beverly Ware Jordan, who passed from this world on Feb. 24, 2022.
Beverly was born in Lynchburg on Aug. 20, 1947 to her parents Fontaine P. and Beatrice R. Ware who preceded her in death. She was also predeceased by a brother Fontaine P. Ware, Jr.; and her son Lance R. Jordan. She is survived by her son Fontaine Scott Jordan, his wife Lindsay Stone and their children Willy J. Stone, Angelyn Jordan and Saffron Jordan. She is also survived by her daughter in law Penny S. Jordan and her children Peyton Jordan and Lila Jordan. Additionally she is survived by her life partner Blake Montgomery and sisters Kaye W. Mathews, Frankie W. Farmer and Louise Ware. Beverly will be sorely missed by a host of extended family and friends whom she loved dearly.
Bev graduated from E. C. Glass High School and worked for Bell Atlantic, now Verizon, retiring after 25 years with the company.
Travel, especially to Europe, cooking and music, music, music were her passions besides her family. She delighted in going to hear live music and dance the night away, encouraging everyone to join in her merriment.
There will be a visitation on Fri., Mar.4 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Affinity Funeral Service in Richmond with a celebration of life to follow in Lynchburg at a time to be determined later.
For those who wish to honor Bev’s life with a memorial donation the family suggests donations to the Massey Cancer Center, the Environmental Defense Fund or the Poindexter Family Cemetery fund.
“May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
May you stay forever young.”
Although your song here has ended, Beverly, the melody will linger in our memory and you will stay forever young.
