Cynthia Jordan


Cynthia Jordan was born May 27, 1972 to the late Joyce A. Jordan. She was raised by the late Rev. Harrison and Fannie Bell Nelson whom she affectionately called “Mama and Daddy.” Cynthia was known to all by the name “Fruitcake” or as her family later named her, “Cake.” Cynthia enjoyed life to the fullest; whether it was with her family dancing and cooking her famous chicken wings or just sharing that famous smile. Cynthia was raised in the church and worked in many different organizations of the church. She was very vocal about her faith in her heavenly Father and she often shared her faith story with many about how God saved her and how grace was continuing to carry her through. She was a member of Divine Purpose Worship Center where she was often seen praising God with the rest of the saints.
