MonaLisa Jordan was called to rest with our Lord in her heavenly home on Monday, February 8, 2021 at the age of 70. Beloved MonaLisa was born to the late Robert Jordan Jr. and Georgia Dace Jordan. She was a lifelong resident of New Orleans, Louisiana, where she attended Orleans Parish Public Schools. Mona believed in Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and she was a dedicated member of St. Peter Claver until her health began to decline. When her health conditions would allow her, she would visit Tulane Memorial Baptist Church to worship The Lord. MonaLisa, who was affectionately known as "Ms. Mona" embodied the true definition of a beautiful soul inside and out; she went above and beyond for anyone, especially in their time of need. She was a loyal, determined, courageous woman. Mona was a little woman with a big heart, who always showed love and cared for so many in every way possible. She took her role as a Mother, Grandmother, Sister, and Aunt very seriously, that included doing whatever she could to make sure she was there when she was needed most. MonaLisa loved her family unconditionally there was nothing that she would not do for them. MonaLisa was extremely passionate about everything that she put her mind to, she was employed by the Orleans Parish School Board where she worked as a cafeteria worker. When she was not working, she spent most of her time with her family, and anyone that knew her knew she loved her Coke cold drinks and going on bus rides. MonaLisa was well loved and respected for the phenomenal woman that she was.

Tashaima ~ you have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your mom. To Cyril, Robertine, Carl Reese - hold onto the memories you guys shared with your sister. Tashaima no one was prepared when your mom said she wanted to go home. She did her last days was sharing, laughing, loving, going down memory lane. She wanted to be home surrounded by her baby & grandbabies. She enjoyed until the end. I know the pain all so well. A pain like no other. Know grief has no time limit on. There will be good days you will reflect & smile and there will be some not so good days where tears will fall unexpected. Treasure those days of joy & laughter. The story ~ there was a knock at the door & you received a gift. You & your children were so excited you opened up your gift, throwing everything away. You guys laughed, shared, played & enjoyed each. When your gift stopped working you didn't know what to do. You looked around for the instructions, when you read the instructions. It read "When not working, return to it's maker". She's with our Heavenly Father. You see God said "He knows the day & the hour for when he comes" & when he comes"Be Ready" & she was. God will never leave you. She was your 1st love & gave you your 1st kiss and now you give her her last kiss. Monalisa was genuine person and had an infectious laugh & smile (never to be forgotten). TRUST & RELY ON GOD. HE will never leave you not forsake you. Call on him when you can't call on no one else. I leave you with this. You knew you meant something special to her if your phone number was on the wall. Mine was there (smile). Monalisa take your rest. Love you cuz.

Tashaima ~you have my deepest sympathy. My prayers are for strength, I know the pain you're enduring. Nothing like a mother's love. Mona was a genuine person who told it as it was. She had an infectious smile & laugh that made you smile. Right now you may not feel like smiling but know she is smiling from above. She is and will always be by your side. God prepares his children before they transition. She was where she wanted to be at home with you (her baby) & grandbabies. She laughed, played, enjoyed all. You see the story goes There was a knock at the door & you guys were handed a gift (when she came home) you laughed, played, smiled & enjoyed each other. You even went down memory lane unaware what was to come. She was comfortable surrounded by the love around her. Your beautiful gift stopped working you didn't know what to do. You looked around for the instructions to find out how to fix her. When you found the instructions it said "When not working return her to her maker". I can God tell Mona Lisa it's time, we have to go. As a mother she didn't want to leave you but she knew her time was at hand. Hold onto the memories & whenever down missing her go into your secret vault. As the days & weeks pass - she has & will be on your mind. TRUST & RELY ON GOD during this difficult time. Grief has no time limit. She gave you your 1st kiss now you give her - her last kiss. Cousin Monalisa thank for making an impact on my life. I hold memories we shared. Take your rest my baby. Cyril, Robertine, & Carl Reese hold to the love you shared with your sister.
