Peggy Marie Jackson, age 85 of Howard, Kansas, passed away Sunday, November 27, 2022 at NMC Health in Newton, Kansas.
Peggy was born October 31, 1937 in Corssett, Arkansas to John and Lucille (Moore) Tucker. Her mother passed away when she was just a few days old, and her father passed away when she was only 6 years old, so she was raised in Arkansas by her grandparents, Franklin and Pearl Tucker.
On August 15, 1955, Peggy married Ben Jackson in Greenville, Mississippi. Together, they raised 3 sons and were married 48 years until Ben‘s passing in 2004. They made their home in Boydell, Arkansas for many years, and in 1976 they moved to Wichita, Kansas. Peggy held down several jobs through her life, and ended her working career at Twighlight Manor in Howard, Kansas.
She loved raising her 3 boys and wouldn’t miss a ball game they were playing in. She continued that tradition, going to all the school ball games when her grandson, Colby played baseball. She also enjoyed riding horses, playing the piano, watching football on TV, and seemed to always have an old western on.
Peggy is survived by her 3 sons:
Benny (Robin) Jackson of Howard, Kansas
Jesse Jackson of Howard, Kansas
Norman (Paula) Jackson of Oklahoma
Grandchildren: Arthur Millis, Martin Millis, Tracy Hall, Lynn Marie Jackson, Annie Halderman, Colby Jackson, and Kylee Longhofer
