Mrs. Jordan worked as a apartment manager of the 512 Sabal Palm Apartments in Miami, FL for 15 years until it was sold and then managed another apartment complex until she returned to the Belleville area. She met her husband, William "Bill" Jordan, concert pianist and composer, at the "Bar of Music", which he owned and operated. The "Bar of Music" became a legend in the night club circuit. Bill left Allene with a great legacy of beautiful memories and songs such as "Dream Fantasy" and "When I Walk with You" which he wrote especially for her.
