Patricia was born in Emporia, Kansas, on August 15, 1930 to Clarence MaGill Dodds and Elma Frances Dodds. She graduated from Riley High School in 1948 and attended Kansas State University.

While in high school, Patricia met John David Jordan on a blind date and married in June 1948. While working on the family farm in Freeport, they raced hydroplane boats from Michigan to Texas and everywhere in between. Patricia raced against and enjoyed beating the boys. She and John D. both held National Outboard Association (NOA) world speed records. In the wake of racing, she and John D. opened Jordan’s Saw and Marine in West Monroe and later expanded the business to include motorcycles. After retirement, Patricia embraced her artistic side and began a productive painting period. She and John D. went on many camping adventures and family vacations. She especially loved exploring Denali, Estes Park, Grand Tetons, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Yellowstone. Patricia was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and her son, Scott Dodds Jordan.

Survivors include her sisters Myrna Parry, E. Clare Dodds, and Sondra Polyzogopoulos (Costas); her brother DeLoss Dodds; her son Jon Jordan; her daughters DeAnn Fitch (Buddy) and Robyn Jordan; her grandchildren Meagan Boyer (James), Morgan Battillo, Melissa (Christian) Belew; Ian Mathis, Jarred (Jennifer) Fitch, and Colby (Morgan) Fitch;  great-grandchildren Aubrie and Clark Boyer; Mary Ruth, Carter, and Callen Fitch; multiple cousins, nieces, nephews, and special friends that she considered family.
