Winthrop D. Jordan: Celebration of his life planned at Ole Miss
Many of you have already heard that Winthrop D. Jordan passed away Sunday morning after a long illness. He was himself--wryly humble, thoughtful, and even funny right up until the end. There will be a"Celebration of his Life" on the campus of the University of Mississippi on Monday, March 5, at 7:00 p.m. Further details are available on the University Website (olemiss.edu).
In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer that you send donations to the Interfaith Compassionate Memories, 949 South Lamar, Oxford, MS 38566, or to a charity of your choice.
