Obituary of Juliaetta Omega Jordan

On January 11, 1948 in Greensboro, North Carolina, Robert, Sr. and Margaret Haith Jordan received a bundle of joy, named her Juliaetta Omega and called her "Judy." Their lives were never the same, because Judy showed up bigger than life. Inspite of the fighter she was, Judy lost her battle with Covid-19 and journeyed from labor to reward on Wednesday morning, September 10, 2020. Though we had been expecting it after she was placed in Palliative Care, we were distraught to say the least. She fought so hard because she was wired that way, so much determination. Judy was fiery and not easily persuaded and she was one of the kindest people one would ever want to meet. If she wanted to do something, no one could stop her. And if she did not want to do something, no one could make her. She will be missed by so many. Judy was an attentive and supportive mother, an awesome daughter, a dependable sister, a nurturing grandmother, a doting aunt, a devoted friend and a dynamic, gracious person! When her sister, Toni retired in 2010 in Atlanta, Ga., she coerced her to move to Atlantic City. Until she departed this life, they were the "Golden Girls." To her special granddaughters, she was known as GiGi. More than anything, she loved the LORD. She never met a stranger. Judy always had an encouraging word and a nice compliment. She was so funny and could find a good laugh in any situation. Judy was educated in the City of Greensboro Public School System. At James B. Dudley High School, she was voted by her classmates for the superlatives as the "the wittiest." Greensboro was the cradle of the Civil Rights Movement and Judy was very active in the protests. Her name is listed on the wall at the Civil Rights museum as a protester who was arrested. Upon graduating from high school, she attended Durham Business College in Durham, North Carolina. Having spent summers in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the itching to live there got the best of her. So she packed up and moved, lock, stock and barrel to Atlantic City with her parents' good wishes. Judy became the mother of two sons, Sean and David. They were her heart throb and she would climb the highest mountain and swim the widest ocean to get to them. She joined the Price Memorial AME Zion Church under the leadership of Rev. Curtis Williams where she actively served until her death. Judy attended Stockton State University and graduated in 1999 with a BA in Criminal Justice. She was employed for 14 years by the Atlantic County in Social Services. Loving, helping, and supporting people was Judy's calling in life. She answered her 'calling' with obedience, pride and diligence. She took a position as counselor at the Total Living Center, an organization that renders services to senior citizens and persons with physical disabilities. Working there, Judy acquired a special love for seniors. In 2005, she called herself retiring but that did not work for her. She had an untiring desire to help others. That was Judy. So she went back to work at the National Council on Aging (NCOA) until 2019. Juliaetta was preceded in death by her son, Sean, her parents, her sister, Yvonne and her nephew, Michael. She leaves to celebrate her life: son, David of Las Vegas; brother, Robert (Butch) Jr. (Ida) of High Point North Carolina; sisters, Toni of the home, Sharon, Greensboro; granddaughters, Brittney Francisco-Jordan and Nevaeh M. Jordan and play granddaughter, Kylie of the home, daughters of Sean; nieces, Tracy Swann of Greensboro, Catrena Jordan of Atlanta, Ga., Keisha Moore (Kevin) of Raleigh, N.C., Cara Wilson (Ryan) of Nampa, Idaho, Michelle Andrade (Stephan) of High Point, N.C.; nephew, Robbie Jordan of Atlanta, Ga. and many grand nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends. She leaves to mourn and to cherish her memories, special friends, Faye Adams-Taylor of Atlanta, GA, Marsha Tobe, Verona (Ronnie) Tally and Karla Guy all of Atlantic City, NJ. Judy's shoes can never be filled, but we must submit to the Father's will. We loved her so much but God loved her best. Funeral services are private.
