Rachel Williams Jackson
Rachel Williams Jackson passed away Thursday, March 12, 2020 at the age of 95.
Due to the current state of emergency with the coronavirus, Rachel's family has made the difficult decision to have a private family service.
Rachel was born on May 11, 1924, on a small farm in Richland County, Illinois, to Joy and Rolla Williams. She graduated from West Salem High School in 1942. Rachel married Ellis Dale Jackson in St. Louis, Missouri in 1946, who preceded her in death in 1990.
They moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 1957 and settled in Cleburne in 1969. Rachel began her career with Texas Instruments in 1963 and retired in 1992.
One of Rachel's proudest accomplishments was being a 64 year member of the Order of the Eastern Star, serving in many capacities. She was active for 45 years with the Alvarado Rainbow for Girls. Rachel was a member of Daughters of Nile, Order of Amaranth, and the White Shrine. If that did not keep her busy enough, Rachel was also a Senior Education crochet instructor at TCC and she supported several ministries with her time, talents and gifts at Lane Prairie Baptist Church.
Holiday celebrations were always at "Grandma's house" until she moved to the Texas Masonic Retirement Center in 2018. In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; and oldest son, Ronald Jackson.
Left to cherish her memory are daughter, Teresa Moore and husband, J. Michael, of Tifton, Georgia, daughter, Phyllis Stouffer and husband, Jim, of Fort Worth, Texas; son, Phillip Jackson of Keene, Texas; daughter-in-law, Shirlene Jackson of Joshua, Texas; grandchildren, T. J. Jackson (Andrea), Joy Jackson, Sandi Ethridge (Joel), Brett Moser, Stephanie Stouffer, Jay Stouffer (Liz) and Marshall Stouffer; and nine great-grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, 2222 Welbourn St., Dallas, Texas 75219 or Lane Prairie Baptist Church, 412 CR 704, Joshua, Texas 76058.

Mrs. Jackson was a true light to those who were blessed to know her. I met her through my grandmother, Lorene Hutson and as a Rainbow Girl from Cleburne #68. I had the pleasure of spending time once again with Mrs. Jackson when my grandmother and she were placed as roommates in a Fort Worth rehab some years back. Her gracious demeanor and quick wit always brought a smile. Her helping hands and strong guidance were always an example to those she was influencing. Thank you for sharing her with us, family. We are more blessed because of your graciousness - and hers.


With Rainbow Love,
Betsy Hutson Conner
