Obituary - Memphis Democrat, Memphis, Missouri:
Faye Poe Jackson, eldest daughter of Otis E. and Ina Reed Poe was born July 13, 1907 near Downing, Missouri and passed away at the Ottumwa Hospital on November 4, 1972, after having been hospitalized for six days.
Faye received her education in the East Lynn Grove School and the Downing High School. She became a member of the Downing Presbyterian Church during her early childhood. She was an active member of the Ariel Rebekah Lodge No. 752 of Downing, so long as her health permitted, during which time she served in each of the offices.
She was united in marriage to Leland Jackson on August 21, 1929 and to them were born four children. She and Leland were engaged in farming for a number of years, all on farms near Downing, except for four years which were spent on a farm southwest of Memphis. In 1962, they sold their farm and moved to Downing where they engaged full time in the trucking business which they still operate.
She is survived by her husband, her three sons-in-law and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Quentin (Ina Mae) Lewis of Downing; Mr. and Mrs. Bill (Clara Faye) Miller of Aurora, Colorado; and Mr. and Mrs. Jim (Dottie Jean) Wray of Macon, Missouri, a daughter-in-law, Diane Kight, thirteen grandchildren, a brother, Eugene Poe and his wife and a sister-in-law, Mrs. Forest Poe, all of Downing, Missouri. She is survived by three elderly aunts, Mrs. Ross Leach and Mrs. Frank Israel of Memphis, and Mrs. J. V. Riley of Downing; by her mother-in-law, Mrs. Clara Jackson, brothers and sisters-in-law, a number of nieces and nephews, cousins and many, many friends.
Faye was a loving wife and mother, an adoring grandmother and was tireless in her efforts on heir behalf. But her thoughtfulness, her care and concern, extended beyond her immediate family and enriched the lives of so many others.
Funeral services were conducted by D. W. Payne & Sons from the United Methodist Church, Downing, Missouri, Tuesday November 7, 1972, at 2:00 p.m. with the Rev. Kenneth Campbell officiating. Soloist was Roger Ferguson and pianist was Vada Fogle. Body bearers were Bill Riley, Bob Poe, Bill Poe, Dale Poe, Loweldene Fincher and Richard Gallagher. Interment was in the Downing cemetery.
