Wrenn Carroll Jordan

October 11, 1938 — March 16, 2024

Siler City

Wrenn Carroll Jordan, 85, of Siler City, passed away Friday, March 16, 2024.

Wrenn was born in Chatham County on October 11, 1938, to Harry Lane Jordan and Cara Wrenn Jordan. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his two brothers: Rev. R. Harry Jordan and wife, Frances Weaver Jordan, of Wilson and James Allen Jordan, of Siler City. Wrenn is survived by his niece, Charlotte Frances Jordan, of Wilson, Carolina Beach and previously of Raleigh and nephew, Thomas Mark Jordan, of Raleigh.

Wrenn was loved by many in the community and facilities.  He had an appealing personality, socially high functioning though born with DD. After Murdoch Center Training School in Butner, NC, he moved to the first group home opened in NC, the Durham County group home. Wrenn moved to live in his last group home for most of his years, Pickens Place in Siler City, in which he enjoyed all the activities and beach trips. Wrenn worked at Chatham Trades for years. He eventually moved to the Siler City Genesis Nursing Home Center for physical rehab purposes where Wrenn would spend his day times at Club Insight. Wrenn enjoyed all mechanical things, rode his bicycle while living in Durham and his moped. He enjoyed going to the Weaver Virginia farm and admiring the tractors. Wrenn attended Siler City Methodist Church when living at home and his faith was a part of him. Wrenn loved his niece's dogs and riding in her automobiles. Wrenn's favorite pass time was smoking his collection of pipes. His pleasantness will be remembered and missed.

Much appreciation by the family to OPC LME staff.
