Joan was born June 20, 1939. She is the daughter of the late Oliver and the late Catherine (Armstrong) Grass. She married James Junior Jackson on May 1, 1956 in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. She was preceded in death by her husband, James J Jackson on August 13, 1999 along and her daughter, Teresa Jackson.
Joan loved, more than anything, being a mother to all of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchild. She was the definition of a “mother hen,” doting on, and making sure that everyone in her home was taken care of. She made it a priority to make sure that anyone who stepped into her house, felt loved and “at home.” Joan was a fabulous cook and thoroughly enjoyed making giant meals for their Sunday family gatherings. She was famous for her 5 star chicken noodle soup, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, and most importantly her dessets: peach&cherry cobbler and butter scotch pie. Joan loved spending time with her family, reminiscing over all the fond memories they shared. Now that she has moved on, her family will continue to share their fond memories of Joan and pass them down to future generations.
She is survived by two daughters: Janet (Terry) Newell and Lynn (Jackson) Bishop, one son: Paul (Karen) Jackson, nine grandchildren: Wes Jackson, Brad Jackson, Kara Jackson, Carl Newell, Kevin Newell, TJ Newell, James Jackson, Brentney Bunch, and Rylee Bundt, 20 great grandchildren along with 1 great great grandchild.
