Theodore Jackson

March 30, 2020


We can only stand and gaze and bow our hearts in humble submission to the will for Him who doeth all things well.    For we must all go someday, one by one.

The transition from earth to eternity came to Theodore Jackson on March 30, 2020.  Theodore was born on May 29, 1942 to Earnest Jackson, Sr. and Ermer L. Jackson in Lamison,     Alabama. He was the fifth of eighteen children born to the union.

Theodore never met a stranger.  He was a faithful employer of the Griffin Wood Company where he retired.  Theodore confessed Christ at an early age and joined the Mt. Ararat Baptist Church of Marion, Alabama.

He was preceded in death by his father Earnest Jackson, Sr., three brothers; Howard Jackson, Arthur Jackson and Ceasar Jackson and one sister Lillie Jackson Miree.

Theodore leaves  to cherish his memory: two sons, Gary Mosley of Marion, Alabama and Bishop Rodney  (Lula) Sheppard of Brent, Alabama; five sisters, Dorothy Cosby, Lucinda (A.B.) Shelton, Barbara (Tommy) Starks all of   Marion, Alabama; Mary C. (AJ) Stabler of Brent, Alabama, Patricia (Irving) Turner of Jonesboro, Georgia; eight brothers, Earnest Lee (Iona) Jackson, Jr., Willie Lee (Sarah) Jackson, Sr., Albert (Mary) Jackson,  James (Cathy) Jackson, Bobby Jackson all of Marion, Alabama, Sidney Jackson, Sr., Selma, Alabama, Alexander (Asetta) Jackson, Sr., J.C.
