Vernice Delores Jordan Johnson, affectionately known as Aunt “Wee Wee” daughter of the late James L. and Lucille M. Jordan, was born September 13, 1957 in Fredericksburg, VA. She departed this life at 3:19 a.m. on January 2, 2014 at the Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.
She received her education from the King George County Public School System graduating in June 1976.
At an early age, she gave her life to Christ and joined Salem Baptist Church where she was baptized by the late Reverend W. S. DeVaughn. She rededicated her life to the church in 2003 where she was a faithful and devoted member. She was very active in the church serving as a member of the Praise Team, Drama Ministry, Women’s Christmas Committee, Bulletin Board Committee and the Kitchen Committee. She also prepared the programs for Sunday services and for the various functions that were held at the church.
Vernice had a special love for her Salem Baptist Church Family. She would do whatever it took to get the job done; including, driving other members so that they could attend Sunday Worship.
Vernice was employed for twenty years as a Contractor in the Dahlgren area; but was currently employed as an Administrative Assistant at the Cedell Brooks Funeral Home.
There wasn’t much that Vernice could not do. She was the family’s seamstress, jewelry maker, photographer, computer expert, and anything else anyone asked of her. She loved her family and it was reflected in everything she did.
Vernice was very friendly and outgoing. Her hospitality was extended to all who entered her home or was touched by her presence, as she never met a stranger. She could always say something to make you laugh.
She leaves to mourn and cherish her memory her daughters, TaVonia and Tangela Johnson and son, Matthew Jordan all of Dahlgren; her six sisters, Loretta John; Arlene Davis; Brenda Jordan; Vickie Jordan; all of Dahlgren; Leslie Jordan of King George; and Maricha Anderton (Dominic) of Milford.
