A longtime Catholic educator who most recently served as superintendent for the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend has died.

Marsha A. Jordan was 67. Her obituary indicated she had cancer.

Jordan died Thursday, about a month after Gov. Eric Holcomb awarded her the Sagamore of the Wabash, the highest distinction of honor bestowed by the governor.

It was given in recognition of her four decades of “unfailing commitment to Catholic education” in the diocese, according to a news release about the award.

Jordan recently retired as superintendent, a role she had since 2014, the release said.
