Mrs. Jackson was born Feb. 18, 1949, in Alton, the second child of Dellon William and Mildred Irene (Gowin) Fritz. She married the love of her life, William Jackson on Dec. 28, 1974, at the First Baptist Church in Litchfield, and he survives.
Raised in Jerseyville, she graduated in 1967 from Jersey Community High School. She was particularly proud of her "Girls of 1967," where she enjoyed many wonderful times and attained so many special memories.
After graduating, she went on to Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, OK, where she earned her bachelor of science degree in nutritional science.
For over 30 years, she was employed with St. Francis Hospital, where she retired in 2004 as a dietary supervisor.
A devoted Christian, she was a member of the Word and Spirit Family Church in Alton. Meticulous in appearance and action, she possessed strong organizational skills. Many of her family members and friends were the benefactors of her amazing talent.
She enjoyed sewing, spending time with her family, and most importantly, living her life helping others in any way and always striving to be a positive example of Christ's love.
In addition to her husband of 45 years, she is survived by a brother and sister-in-law, Gerald and Elizabeth Fritz of Jerseyville; sister and brother-in-law, Jennifer and the Rev.
