Daisy L. Jordan Anderson entered eternal rest on March 6, 2018. She was born on September 25, 1929 in Florence, South Carolina, the daughter of Nathaniel Jordan and Laura Burgess Jordan-Johnson. She was predeceased by her parents and husband Joseph Anderson, Sr.

Daisy matriculated at Allen University in Columbia, SC from 1949-1953. Upon graduation, she returned to her hometown of Lake City, SC to work as a 3rd grade teacher for 3 years. She met her late husband, Joe, in Lake City, SC through a mutual friend. They were married on August 30, 1953 in South Carolina.

In October 1956, Daisy and her late husband moved their family to Bridgeport, CT where she obtained a job with Columbia Records. After 8 years of service with Columbia Records, she moved onto a better opportunity with General Electric as an inspector. Daisy retired from GE in 1987 and pursued another career as manager at her eldest daughter, Harriett’s, business known as Larry’s Shoe Repair for 13 years. Daisy was a dedicated and faithful member of Bethel A.M.E. Church, Bridgeport CT for close to 60 years. She served as a member of the Floral Club, Pastor’s Aide, Senior Choir, Lay Organization, and 6-7-8 Ministry.
