About Us

We acknowledge that insurance can be complicated and is not at the top of anyone’s list of favorite things to deal with. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible.

Many agents feel that educating the client is a drain on their time or a burden. The fact is that no one wants to pay for something if they are unsure of what they are getting for their dollar. We feel that an educated client is the most satisfied client.

Ordner Insurance, as an independant insurance agency, represents multiple companies. Because we are independant we are able to offer the right combination of coverage and price to fit your particular situation.

Just fill out the request information located in the contact form (Click Here Button on left side) and we will contact you as soon as possible.

Meet The Founder:

Frank W. Ordner, Jr.  was the proud owner and operator of Ordner Insurance until his death on January 14, 2022 from Covid-19.  

He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Corydon. Frank was a former Grand Knight and past Faithful Navigator and one of the founding members of the 4th Degree Council 1808 of the Knights of Columbus in Harrison County, IN. He enjoyed attending National Reining Horse Association Shows.

Frank was born, raised and except for a brief stint when he went to college at the University at Evansville, lived in Corydon. He was proud of his town and the friends he had, most of which he either grew up with or had as a student. He attended the Harrison County Fair every year of his life up until the Covid pandemic. He also never missed the harness races during the fair. He could be seen in the grandstands every year since high school with his friend Jack Miles, who once told him, “The best thing he could do for his golf game was quit.” Frank enjoyed the game of basketball. He coached fifth grade boys’ and girls’ teams at CES. He loved watching IU basketball. 

Frank was an avid historian and loved to research his ancestors, one of which was Francis (Frank) White Johnson, commander of the Texian Army during the Texas Revolution at the siege of Bexar (San Antonio). 

For about the Last four years, he prepared meals at the K of C hall in Lanesville on Friday nights. The highlight of his later years was his grandkids. He loved nothing more than to spoil them rotten. He could even be seen going down a slide a time or two because he was “told” to by a grandchild.  He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. The passing of Frank has left a void in the heart of our family and the Community of Harrison County.


Ordner Insurance was founded by Frank W. Ordner, Jr. in 2003.  After working in the South Harrison Community School Corporation for over 30 years as a teacher, principal, vice principal, and basketball coach, Frank decided it was time to slow down and concentrate on his family and his reining horses.  This is when he founded Ordner Insurance.  Because of Frank’s love for his community, its members, and the reining horse industry, he turned what started as a small community single-agent independent insurance agency into a successful multi-agent agency that cares for insureds in over 25 states. It was Frank’s individual attention and interactions with the community that made Ordner Insurance successful.  Oftentimes, meetings to inquire about insurance turned into reminiscing about the community and family members.  Frank was truly loved by all who knew and interacted with him.  Our goal at Ordner Insurance is to keep his legacy going.  We strive to maintain the personalized attention you deserve when it comes to finding insurance.  At Ordner Insurance, we want you to feel confident in your insurance decisions and as part of our family.
