Roslyn Jordan Obituary

Roslyn "Roz" Jordan, a wonderful and witty wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away peacefully on December 3, 2023, surrounded by the warmth and caring of her family. Born on September 3, 1932 as the first child to Dorothy and Reuben Steinberg, Roz grew up in Philadelphia and later moved to Hopewell, New Jersey. Roz is predeceased by husband, Sidney Jordan; sisters, Harriet Listokin and Sandra Vallese. She is survived by her sons Edward Jordan and his wife Dianne; Robert Jordan and his wife Andrea; Her grandchildren Shana Garber and her husband Ian, Deanna Jordan, Spencer Jordan, and Carter Jordan, in addition to her sister, Elaine Renzi.

Roz grew up in South Philadelphia where she made lifelong friends and worked in the Philadelphia Court system for many years. She was an avid reader and lover of art and antiques, theater, music and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Most importantly she loved ice cream.

She met her husband Sidney in Philadelphia in 1955 and were married in 1957. Together, they raised two beloved children, shared a fondness for comedy, theater, and good food. In 1975 they founded Rambling Pines Day Camp in Hopewell, New Jersey. There they helped shape and nurture the lives of thousands of children with a wonderful summer camp experience. Her fondest memories were of her time with her own grandchildren at the camp.

Roz's presence truly touched and enhanced the lives of everyone whose path she crossed, leaving a lasting memory with her wit, humor, warmth, and kindness. She will live on in our hearts forever. Although she will be looking down on us from Heaven, as she said, “I will always be underfoot”. A service to celebrate a life lived to the fullest will be held in the spring at her beloved home and camp, Rambling Pines.
