JORDAN, Margery Elizabeth (née GERALD)
Passed away October 5th, 2005 after a tragic fall at the age of 86 years. Born September 20th, 1919 in Fredericton, New Brunswick to William Thomas and Margery Elizabeth GERALD. She is survived by her devoted husband Jim, and her loving family: son Dennis JORDAN his wife Cathy in Huntsville Ontario, son Jamie JORDAN and wife Meg in Huntsville and daughter Mary JORDAN and her husband Carl LAVOIE of Toronto, Ontario, Sister Muriel LESSMANN and brother Dick GERALD both in Toronto and by her admiring grandchildren who loved her so much; Dennis, Patrick, Andrew, Megan, Benjamie, Sarah and Jordan who were all a source of great joy and comfort to her through the years. Margery heard the tales of the loss of members of her family during World War I. She endured Rheumatic Fever twice, Polio once, the Depression and World War 2. She attended St. Clement's school and graduated from Northern Secondary in Toronto where she met Jim. She went on to study art at the Ontario College of Art and was a student of Arthur Lismer, one of the Group of Seven. She and Jim with young Denny headed north to found Ski Jump Inn and Jorlea Trading Post. It took 5 hours to drive from Toronto to Huntsville in those days. The first summer the 3 of them lived in a tent while more permanent buildings were being constructed. That winter she lived in a log cabin built from trees that grew on their land. They seemed to be the last of the pioneers. She successfully ran the store and helped in the running of the Inn for over 30 years while raising her family. She continued her art leaving her family and Friends with a rich heritage of images connected to their personal histories. She also contributed to the culture of Huntsville by designing and painting the backdrops which formed the sets of many a magnificent Rotary Theatre production. Margery was the recipient of Rotary's highest honour, the Paul Harris Fellowship award for this considerable contribution. She was a long time volunteer with the Huntsville Hospital Auxiliary. Margery worked with stroke victims helping them to learn to speak again. She was a wonderful wife to Jim who is stricken with sadness because of her unexpected death. She built a wonderful extended family who remain close and loving in large part due to her example. Margery will be remembered for her humour, her astounding graciousness in the face of any difficulty, her art and her deep love of life and family. In lieu of flowers Margery would want donations to be made to the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Canada, 2345 Yonge St. Toronto, Ontario or call (416) 488-0030. Visitation will be held at Mitchell's Funeral Home 15 High Street in Huntsville on Friday October 7th from 4 p.m. until 6: 30 p.m. The Funeral will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 30 High St. Huntsville, Ontario at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 8th.
