Nancy L. Jackson Monday, May 31, 1943 - Friday, July 28, 2017
Nancy Lucille Jackson, 74, of Little Rock, Arkansas, passed away on July 28, 2017 at the home. She was born May 31, 1943 to the union of Virgil and Lucille (Thomas) Foster in Alton, Illinois. Her parents; one brother, Eldon Gravett and one sister, Judith Schmidgall preceded her in death.
At tender age of eight, Nancy’s mother passed and she was lovingly raised by her uncle Virgil and Aunt Opal. She accepted Christ at an early, attending church with her family and singing in the children's choir.
Nancy loved to listen to Elvis Presley and Andre Bocelli. Her favorite pastimes were sewing and crocheting. She made a career as a seamstress, where she met her former husband Bill and her best friend of many years, Rose Gardner-Kleinan.
Nancy was united in marriage to James L. Jackson who also preceded her in death.
“Miss Nancy”, as she was affectionately known by her family and friends, was called into eternal rest on Friday, July 28, 2017 in the comfort of her home, under the personal loving care of her youngest daughter, Felecia. It's been a journey over many years where there were laughs, love, and tears, but now there’s celebration in the closing of one chapter. Miss Nancy is no longer here with us, however the Jackson Story does not end at her memorial.
