Sara Clyde Banks Jordan, age 83, died Tuesday, August 7, 2012, at The Retreat Nursing

“Clydie” Jordan was born in Shady Dale to the late O. H. Banks and Louise Young
Banks. She attended school first in Shady Dale and then in Monticello. She was a
member of the Monticello Presbyterian Church where she was active in the Presbyterian
Women’s work, serving on numerous church committees, and fed the local and
prospective preachers on many a Sunday.

After attending Georgia State College for Women (now Georgia College and State
University), she married Phil Jordan in 1947, and became a Navy wife, living in Boston
and Norfolk before returning to Monticello where they remained. Together they raised
five children, and worked vigorously in support of the public school system and its
activities. They would have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on September 14th.

Her first priority was her home and family. However, Clydie also enjoyed several part
time jobs over the years. She was a substitute teacher, a nursery school teacher, a clerk in
the tax commissioner’s office, a poll worker, a cashier at a grocery store, a clerk at a
hardware store, and a hairdresser at the funeral home.

She loved to travel, especially after her daughter, Patti, moved to Germany. She
participated in elder hostels, and bird watching adventures. She was a supporter of
scouting, serving as a Girl Scout leader and Cub Scout leader for many years. She loved
to sew for her children and their dolls, make quilts, and especially to cross-stitch. Her
handwork was widely known for its beauty.

She was predeceased by sisters, Nancy Kelly and Sunny Lane.

Clydie is survived by her loving husband, W. Phil Jordan of Monticello; children and
