Born May 27th 1945 in Lubbock, Texas to Eva Lou Dorsey and James Jordan, Bobbie Jean Jordan made her grand appearance. Bobbie Jean was the fourth of six siblings. Starting her early childhood in Bryan, Texas and excelling in the Bryan public school system. Bobbie moved to Dallas, Texas in 1962 and worked at the Fairmont Hotel. During her journey she birthed six children, Lawrence, Daphne, Victor, Patrick, Reginald, and Felicia.
In 1974 she embarked on a new journey as a healthcare professional in San Diego, California. She enjoyed nothing more than being a helping hand for anyone she came in contact with. You could count on Bobbie Jean to give the shirt off of her back and her last dollar to those in need.
Bobbie was the life of the party. You can count on her to get the party started and don’t think you would be able to sit around her and not dance. She was quick to snatch you up to get down and boogie with her. She never let her age hold her back, she had her famous two step and her old school pop lock and drop it down pat.
Bobbie also did not play when it came to her grandkids. They did no wrong in her eyes, and she would be quick to let anyone know. She was devoted to making sure her grandchildren knew her values of life and how to make her famous southern dishes.
Over the years, her everyday life changed due to changes in her health, but that did not stop Bobbie from being independent, and her loving daughter Daphne made sure of that. Daphne made sure her mother stayed in the best health possible. She wouldn’t leave her mama’s side no matter the time or place. “Go home Diana” (as Bobbie would call her). She loved her space and independence.
Through the incredible fight, she defeated the enemy and blessed us with one more birthday. Bobbie was big on family and spending time together. Her last birthday was spent surrounded by loving family and friends. Seventy-four and blessed, it doesn’t get any better than that.
On the morning of May 29, 2019 the Lord opened the gates and told Bobbie Jean her job here is done. With her devoted daughter Daphne by her side she departed from this life and reunited with the Lord. Meeting her was; mother Eva Lou Dorsey; father James Jordan; two sisters Cassie Dorsey and Joanna Dorsey; two brothers Howard Dorsey and Leon Dorsey; her baby girl Felicia Jordan; and her loving grandson LaNeail Anderson.
