Annie Jackson Obituary

Annie Lee Jackson (“Mother”) was born on December 24th, 1945, in Macon, Georgia. She was the daughter of the late Lee Pearl Lamar-Jackson and John Sherman Jackson and the 4th child of 14 (6 sisters and 7 brothers). She was preceded in death by her parents Lee Pearl Lamar-Jackson and John Sherman Jackson, her brothers Henry Jackson, Johnnie Jackson, Franklin Timothy Jackson, Alfred Jackson and her sisters Dollie Mae Jackson, Louise Jackson, Retha Mae Jackson and her late husband David Allen Glenn.


Ann was a caring mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She was raised on a farm in Warner Robins, Georgia and attended the public school system there. Upon graduating from Pearl Stephens High School in Warner Robins, she moved to Cleveland, Ohio with her brother “Sonny”.


In Cleveland, she studied and became a licensed barber and cosmetologist. Annie had two daughters Antoinette and LaToya Jackson, however if you knew her through her children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews- you too called her “Mother”.  Ann worked several jobs to support her children which included caregiver, teacher’s assistant and customer service representative to name a few, and she loved spending time in the kitchen, cooking southern meals for the family. 


Throughout her life, “Mother” had a talent for making people smile, no matter what the situation. Her quick wit and clever remarks never failed to lighten the mood and keep people eager for the next laugh and sometimes that joke would catch you off guard.  Ann’s humor was a reflection of her kind compassionate nature sprinkled with her experiences and stories. She had a lifelong passion for gardening. Growing up in the South, her love for the outdoors and putting her hands in some good soil was deeply ingrained in her.


After retirement, she enjoyed going to the Avon Senior Center participating in activities such as yoga and tai-chi. “Mother” was a woman of faith, which was evident in her selfless way of giving to others. She was a volunteer at church and local food banks. “Mother” was a beautiful person inside and out caring deeply for the people around her and most times not even knowing the impact she had on a person's life.


Ann Jackson departed peacefully in her home on April 1st, 2023, at the age of 77 with her daughters by her bedside. The family is deeply saddened, and she will be forever missed. She leaves to cherish her fond and loving memories: two daughters’ Antoinette Jackson of Elyria, OH (Derrick) and LaToya Jackson of Chicago, IL., three sisters; Lucy Ward of Cleveland, OH., Shelly Jordan (Kent) and Brenda Jackson of Warner Robins, GA., three brothers; John Sherman Jackson of CA. (Brenda), Willie C. Jackson (Gladys) and James Sterling Jackson of Warner Robins, GA. Three Grandchildren; Rodger Jamison, Chris Jamison of Elyria, OH. and Carmela Wingfield of Los Angeles, CA. along with several other nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, other relatives, and friends.


May her memory continue to bring joy and happiness to those who knew her. Until we meet again, “Mother”.
