~Estella Jackson~

Estella Jackson was born on March 24, 1932, the fifth of eight children, to Clannie Jackson and Lear Garrett Jackson in Sylacauga, Talladega County, Alabama.

Estella  was educated in the Talladega Springs County Schools, soon after, relocating to Gadsden, Alabama.

Estella accepted Christ at an early age and united with the Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church, where she served faithfully her entire life.

Ms. Estella Jackson better known as “Mama” to many people, was the elder of the neighborhood - a pillar in the community - one of the elders of the church - serving over 60 years at Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church. She was a very well respected person all around.

Being a pillar of the community, Ms. Estella was always willing to serve in her community and her church. She worked with the Missionary Team at church and she also participated in the Choir during her earlier membership. Ms. Estella was also very well known for her flowers and intricate landscaping around her home. She served her family and her community well and will be sorely missed.

Ms. Estella Jackson departed this part of her life to be in her Heavenly home on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

Estella was preceded in death by her mother, Lear Garrett Jackson, father, Clannie Jackson and her son, Jerome Threatt.

Grief can be so hard, but our cherished memories help us cope. Hold tight to those memories…. Lean on each other for support…. And look to God’s word the Bible, for comfort and strength. James 4:8 encourages; “Draw close to God, and He will draw close to you.”
