August 13, 1946 - December 13, 2021
Diana Marie (Mello) Jordan entered the gates of heaven on Monday, December 13, 2021 in Lodi, CA at the age of 75. Born in 1946 to Richard and Julia Mello, she was raised on the family dairy farm in Tracy, CA, where she got up before the sun rose every morning to milk the cows and help get her little sister and brother ready for school. In 1968, she married the love of her life Jimmy Jordan, Sr. Together, they had two children, Jimmy and Jennifer, and moved to Stockton, CA in 1973 to raise their family. Diana volunteered at Presentation Parish School and Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary for many years while her children attended school there, helping in the classrooms, rummage sales, fundraisers and chaperoning field trips. She worked at Elmhaven Convalescent Home as a housekeeper and in the Laundry Department for 20 years until retiring in 2006, where she helped provide a clean and safe living facility for the residents. After retirement, Diana continued to enjoy her life. She cared deeply for her mother and was her primary caregiver until she passed in 2013. Diana was very passionate about helping animals and welcomed her home (and backyard) to many neighborhood cats looking for food, shelter and the kindness of a human. She enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends wherever she went, even her last residence at Lodi Creek Nursing Homes, she made many friends. Diana was a loving and caring woman, always helping others that needed help, even if it was giving away her last dollar to someone that needed it. She is survived by her son Jimmy Jordan Jr. of Stockton, her daughter Jennifer Jordan (Nissa) of Stockton, her two sisters Lucy Berry (Ron) of Manteca, and Teresa Ramirez of San Jose, her two granddaughters Marissa Jordan (Justin) and Sarah Jordan of Ione, her great granddaughter Vanna Nicole Reimer her great grandson Brenden Kahre of Ione.

Sweetie), and other beloved family and friends. She is preceded in death by her husband Jimmy Jordan, Sr., parents Richard Mello, Sr. and Julia Mello, and her brother Richard Mello, Jr. Services will be held on Friday, January 14, 2022 at 11 AM at Tracy Memorial Chapel (5 W.
