JORDAN Dorothy Lou Rule, 90, went home to the Lord she loved so much on Feb 26, 2015. Making this world a better place was her theme and love her driving force. Her spirit never ceased to enrich those she encountered on this earth. She was born in Houston, TX on September 29, 1924. She worked as an RN, served the Navajo Indians with her spouse, Ernest Jordan, raised five children, and, after retirement, volunteered with the Peace Corps in Paraguay and the Solomon Islands. She is survived by her children: Laurel Foster, Linda Ann Waggoner, Cathy McClain, Martin Jordan, Mera Claybrook, and 22 grandchildren. Love, joy and a positive outlook on life are the legacy she left for them. They will deeply miss the beauty she inspired one to see and to create. They hope to continue to emulate the love and good works she so abundantly shared with others. A memorial celebration of her life will be held at 2pm Sat, March 14, 2015 at First United Methodist Church, 200 West High Street. To honor Dottie, help someone in need in memory of her. www.milwardfuneral.com.
