Karla Agnes Jackson


Karla Agnes Jackson, 85, of Ripley, NY left her husband’s side and stepped into the

waiting arms of her Savior, Jesus on February 20, 2024. She was born on December 18,

1938 in Alexandria, VA, the daughter of the late Edward Jones and Karla Henderson Jones Cash.

Karla was a 1958 graduate of Annandale High School, VA. She married her husband of

66 years, Terry H. Jackson on December 20, 1957 at the Andrews Air Force Base Chapel

in Suitland, MD. They settled in the Ripley, NY area in the 1960’s and raised a family


Karla operated the Montgomery-Ward catalog store in Westfield for a number of years

along with her husband, and she retired from the Welch’s Distribution Center after 23

years of service as a Shipping Agent.

Karla’s greatest joy came from spending time with her family and serving her church

family at Lakeshore Assembly of God. She left a lasting impression on all who were

touched by her kind and gentle spirit as a Sunday school teacher, greeter, hospitality

worker, and mission’s coordinator. She was an avid reader, painter, flower gardener,

and maintained a beautiful collection of houseplants. Her grandchildren’s favorite

dessert was her chocolate éclair cake made for family reunions!

Kristine Slagle of Lee’s Summit, MO, David (Patricia) Jackson of Littleton, MA, Douglas

(Kelli) Jackson of Cary, NC, and Donald (Krista) Jackson of Zanesfield, OH, 14
