Deanna Lynn Tilley Jordon, 54, passed away December 19, 2020, after a long battle with MS (multiple sclerosis). She was born in Springfield, Ore., on February 17, 1966, to Linda Rae Gibbons Mans and Elbert Fay Tilley. She is preceded in death by her father, Elbert Tilley, and the love of her life, Thomas ''Pete'' Eugene Jordon. Survivors include her daughters, Allyn and Lexie Jordon, her sister, Pam Russell and husband Mark Russell, half-sister, Claudia Jansen of Germany, mother, Linda Mans of Clarksville, and so many more loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Deanna is most remembered by her family and friends for her loving and compassionate nature, along with a smile that lit up her face. She worked with children for most of her life, in roles such as Girl Scout leader, preschool teacher, and Young Eagles volunteer. Later in life she turned that compassion towards the world at large. She worked as an ambulance driver in Dewitt, Ark., that was a stepping stone to achieving both a state and federal EMT license. A few years later in NWA, Deanna was accepted into the U of A Nursing Program as she worked as a Nurse's Aide at the Washington Regional Medical Center. Deanna will be greatly missed, but as her family has said many times, another angel got their wings. Online guestbook is available at www.hardwickefuneral.com.
