Lucille Tuner Jordan, beloved daughter of the late Alfred Lee Turner, Sr. and Nelcie Watford Turner, was born on Thursday, May 23, 1935, in Southampton County, Virginia. She was educated in the Southampton School System and remained a resident of Boykins, Virginia, until relocating to North Carolina, after her marriage to the love of her life, William M. Jordan, on February 11, 1955.
Being reared in a Christian home, Lucille accepted Christ, early in life and joined the New Bethel Baptist Church of Boykins, Virginia. She often traveled; singing with the Spiritualettes of New Bethel, as she had a love for gospel music and enjoyed singing. Realizing that husband and wife ought to work, as well as, worship together, to bring glory to God, Lucille decided to unite in Christian fellowship with First Baptist Church of Severn, where she served faithfully throughout the years. She always spoke very highly of her church and was an active member of the Culinary Arts Committee, Deaconess Ministry, Pastor’s Aide Ministry, Senior Choir, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and Women In Prayer Outreach Ministry.
Not only was Lucille active within her church, but she was active within her community, as she was a member of the North Carolina Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star - serving as Worthy Matron, for several years. Lucille continued her community service by working in the Northampton School System and several sewing factories, during her years of employment. She would also sew and perform alterations for family and friends.
“Who can find a virtuous woman? She is worth far more than rubies” (Proverbs 31:10). Lucille’s qualities of hard work, fear of God, respect she had for her husband, love for her children, foresight, encouragement, care for others, concern for the poor and love for her family, all led her to a life of enjoyment, honor and worth. Yes, Lucille was the epitome of “A Virtuous Woman.” As a compassionate and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she found great joy in spending quality time with her family who she loved dearly; especially her grandchildren. She also enjoyed traveling with her civic organizations and never passed up on an opportunity to support and show love to her family and close friends. Her hobbies included: cooking, sewing and shopping. Many can attest that her tasty dishes have tempted their palates.
Lucille was known to many by her affection, genuine love and infectious smile, that could easily brighten anyone’s day. Her smile was accompanied by a warm and bubbly personality along with a great fashion sense. Lucille loved to dress and she was a beautiful person both internally and externally.
Oh, they tell me of a home, Far beyond the skies. Oh, they tell me of a home, So far away. Yes, they tell me of a home, Where no storm clouds rise. Oh, they tell me, Yes, they tell me of an uncloudy day. On Wednesday, June 2, 2021; while in the care of Northampton Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Jackson, North Carolina; God lifted Lucille T. Jordan from this world of sin, sorrow and pain, to a place of peace and sweet eternal rest. Her seeds are well-sown; her service on earth is complete, and she’s now basking in the victory and triumph of eternal life. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved siblings, Elsie Barham, Wilford Lee Turner, Alford Lee Turner, Jr. and Jerry M. Turner.
