Jean Allen Jackson returned home to her Heavenly Father as she passed away peacefully in her home on Sunday, November 3rd, surrounded by her loving family. Jean spent many years working for the U.S. Postal Service starting as a secretary and working her way up to the real estate department and finally becoming a Procurement Officer. She was a diligent hard worker and loved being a working mom.
Jean loved the holidays, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. Her favorite thing to do was to make Christmas cookies from a recipe passed down from her mother. She had a sharp memory and never forgot a single grandchild’s birthday and she was very generous with her love and time. Jean loved to pass the time reading suspense, mystery and thriller novels and could read through a book in a single sitting. We will miss her infectious laugh and her wonderful red hair.
She is survived by her husband Lee Gordon Jackson; sons Allen (Judy), Greg and John (Kathy); 12 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren, plus one on the way; brothers Bruce (Jean), David (Susie), Paul (Leslie) and Steve (Marty); and sister Beth (Bry). Her parents Melvin and Erma Allen preceded her in death.
A viewing will be held Friday evening from 6:00–8:00 PM at the Hillcrest 9th Ward located at 915 E. 9045 S. in Sandy. An additional viewing will be held Saturday at 11:00 AM with funeral services to follow at 12:00 PM at the same location. Interment will be at the Sandy City Cemetery, 700 E. 9000 S., at approximately 1:30 PM. Condolences can be sent to www.goffmortuary.com.
