Suzanne Rae (Miller) Jordan

August 24, 1954 - September 15, 2020


Suzanne Rea (Miller) Jordan, 66, of rural Lost Nation, Iowa, a long-time resident of Davenport, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at her home surrounded by her family.

Per her wishes, cremation rites have been accorded. A memorial service and time of remembrance will be held at 1 P.M., Saturday, October 3, 2020 at Grace Lutheran Church Camp in DeWitt. A meal will be served prior to the service beginning at 11 A.M. to 12:45 P.M. Please plan on joining us for dinner and fellowship before proceeding to the service. The Carson Celebration of Life Center in Maquoketa is caring for the family.

It is recommended that you practice social distancing guidelines due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Suzanne was born on August 24, 1954, in Muscatine, IA. Her family moved to Davenport soon thereafter and she attended Davenport schools, graduating from Central High School in 1972. She began working for the city of Davenport in 1979 in a clerical position. Suzanne held several positions over the years and retired in 2010 as a Financial Specialist. Despite a long-held dread of flying, she chose to go skydiving to celebrate her retirement.

Her goal in retirement was to be of service to others. She found great fulfillment performing these services through a variety of activities, both to individuals, and in group settings. She was especially blessed to be able to show Honor and Respect to our American military members and veterans.

Suzanne treasured the many friends she made during her journey through life. She chose to surround herself with uplifting people and tried to bring cheer to them as well.

She is survived by her long-term partner in life, Patrick Bailey; her son, James Jordan of Davenport; sisters, Lynne King of DeWitt, and Kristi Miller of Davenport, and her "adopted stepson", James Bailey of Davenport.

She is preceded in death by her father, Robert Miller and her special grandma, Marge Edstrom. Also preceding her are her grandparents, Frank and Harriet Miller, and Ralph and Dorothy Essex, a brother Doug Miller and her mother Beverly Vann.
