It is with deep sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Rosalee Ann Jordan, who entered eternal rest on June 14, 2024, at the age of 84. Born on May 29, 1940, in Clarksburg, WV, Rosalee was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend.

A devout and faithful Catholic, Rosalee was a dedicated member of Immaculate Conception Parish in Clarksburg, WV, where she loved attending Mass, praying the Rosary, and had been very active in church choir and other church activities for decades. Her faith was a cornerstone of her life, guiding her in all she did. Rosalee was known for her kindness, generosity and devotion, and she touched the lives of many. She was a caring and generous person who always put others first and loved helping others.

Rosalee was well known for having worked at Palace Furniture in Clarksburg as well as Union National/Chase bank for many years, but she most cherished her work as a mom to her children, Nunnie to her grandchildren, and “Aunt Rosie” to her nieces and nephews.

She was a longtime volunteer and supporter of St. Mary’s Grade School and Notre Dame High School where she, alongside her husband and dear friends, raised funds to replace St. Mary’s stage curtain, decorated for countless homecomings, proms, athletic banquets and academic banquets, and organized numerous fundraising events for St. Mary’s and Notre Dame. Rosalee was honored with the NDHS Principal’s Award in 1993 as well as NDHS Athletic Supporter plaque from Coach Basile. She was also the 2024 Irish Legends Award recipient.
