She was also preceded in death by her parents, four sisters, two brothers and her second husband, Clyde Miller, one grandchild and one great grandchild. She is survived by six sons, Bill Jackson and his wife, Carolyn, of Phoenix, Ariz., Joe Jackson and wife, Felicia, of Abilene, Texas, Jack Jackson and his wife, Virginia, of Lovington, N.M. and Andy Jackson and his wife, Linda, Mitchell Jackson, and Ed Jackson and his wife, Dinky, all of Flora Vista.

She spent many happy hours with her friends at Artesia Senior Center where she and her quilting buddies made many beautiful quilts.

She and Clyde were faithful supportive members of Faith Baptist Church for many years. She was a great lady and her passing leaves a large void in the lives of her many friends and loved ones.

In lieu of flowers her wishes would be that donations be made to the Artesia Senior Center.
