- Lasting Memories - Bobbe Jordan's memorial

Bobbe Jordan
March 2, 1936-Sept. 23, 2022
Portola Valley, CA

She was born and raised in Piedmont, CA with 3 younger brothers. After Piedmont High, she went to UCSB and earned a degree in Biology. While there she met the amazing Bob Jordan who claimed to have ‘saved her from drowning in the shallow end of the pool .’ As his wife she became mother of four lucky children, Tim, Kevin, Jill, and Becky. She raised her own kids along with running an in-home daycare that opened her home and heart to all of Portola Valley’s children. Bobbe rarely sat down, hosting athletes and students from abroad. Bobbe also had a strong love for the outdoors. She enjoyed traveling near and far, whether in Lake Tahoe, Sedona or visiting state and national parks. She loved tapping into her imagination influenced by the work of Muir, Steinbeck, and Bob Jordan. Bobbe shared her limitless love of life with close friends, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She lived by her values shaped by faith and love of nature. Step lightly on the earth. Don’t judge a person until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes. Leave a place better than when you arrived. We will meet again Bobbe , maybe on Windy Hill.
