Laurie R Jordan (Loretta)

August 15, 1923 – January 7, 2024

Laurie (Loretta) Robinson Jordan passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 7, 2024, with her three children around her.

Laurie was born on August 15, 1923, to Irving Henry and Helen Florence Robinson in Lawrence, MA.  She was 4th of 5 children. 

Laurie graduated from Pearly High School in Georgetown, MA.  She then went to work for GE in Lynn, MA telling them that she wanted a “Man’s” job.  They gave her one!  She then enlisted in the Navy’s WAVES program for the duration of WWII.  She met George M Jordan while they both worked on small instruments for the Navy’s aircraft.  They married on March 23, 1944.  George passed away on August 6, 2004, in Auburn, CA. 

Laurie is survived by three children Steve Jordan (Rita), Lynne Still (Gary), Liane Fremd (Bruce), 5 Grandchildren Paul Jordan (Jennifer), Kellie Jordan, Jason Robinson, Nathaniel Fremd (Courtney), Kyle Fremd (Erin), 4 Great-Grandchildren Alex Robinson, Sam, Jeremiah, and Quinn Fremd.

They lived for many years in Santa Clara, Cupertino and Mountainview, CA.  Once the kids were all in school Laurie rejoined the workforce.  She rose through the ranks at Silicon Valley’s Electronics firms, and she became one of the first female executives in Silicon Valley.

After retirement Laurie and George moved to Lake of the Pines in Auburn, CA.  They loved it there with the golfing and boating.  She had always excelled at sewing and crafts and when she retired she took up quilting and belonged to Sewing & Quilting Guilds.  She also taught other senior citizens how to use computers at the local library.

In 2006 she moved to Grants Pass, OR to be closer to family and continued sewing, quilting and other crafts.

In August of 2023, her family had a wonderful 100th Birthday Party for her with family coming in from as far as Idaho, Massachusetts, Illinois and Minnesota.

She was loved by her many friends and family and will be greatly missed.

She lived a full life, leading the way for women in the electronics field and a role model.  Most of all she loved God and her family.
