Daniel E. Jordan

Lifetime resident, Daniel E. Jordan, passed away Dec. 21, 1997 at the Niobrara Memorial Nursing Home, two days after his 84th birthday.

The service was held Tuesday, Dec. 23, 1997 at 10:00 a. m. at Bader Funeral Home with Rev. Mark Lohr and Father Pat Shea officiating.

Burial was at the Bodarc Cemetery.

He was born Dec. 19, 1913 at the home of his grandmother Sarah Jordan in Harrison, Neb.

After his birth, he returned home to Old Woman Creek to his mother's homestead.

A few years later, his parents homesteaded on Indian Creek which is currently part of the family ranch.

At the age of 15, his father passed away and Dan took over the operation of the family ranch for a short time before finishing his education.

He graduated from Chadron Assumption Academy in 1933.

After graduation, he did a series of odd jobs before returning to the family ranch.

He married Velma Zimmerman on August 14, 1937 in Ardmore, S.D., with Father Beaver officiating.

Following the marriage, they returned to the Indian Creek area.

He remained at the family ranch until November 1996 when he entered the Niobrara Memorial Nursing Home.

He would drive many miles in search of a waltz.

He also enjoyed square dancing and an occasional bridge game.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers and two sisters; daughter Carol Jordan Holtz and son in law Durl Holtz and granddaughter, Dixie Lee Holtz who died in infancy.

He is survived by his wife, Velma; his son and daughter-in-law Dale and Dorothy Jordan of Lusk, Wy. and daughter and son-in-law Sherry and Jack Larson of Scottsbluff, Ne.; his sisters Sarah Hartman of Lusk and Bernice Sampont of Osborn, ID.; his grandchildren. Kendy Rising, Pam Rising. Diana Jordan Martin, Danese Jordan Reed and Dean Jordan; ten great-grandchildren and two great-great granddaughters. He leaves a host of relatives and friends.

For those who wish, memorials to the Lusk/Niobrara Ambulance Service will be appreciated by the family.
