Obituary for Helen B. Jackson
Sister  Helen Beatrice Jackson (called Bea) was the  daughter of the late Royal and Helen Bland. She was born on May 29, 1939 in   Crewe, VA and died on September 6,2021 at approximately 2:45 p.m. at the Altavista Nursing home after a very long illness.

She was joined in holy  matrimony to the late Fred Jackson on April 21, 1955.

Helen accepted Christ as a youth. She joined Mt. Calvary Baptist church, Crewe VA, where she actively served as a faithful, loyal, and dependable member until she became too gravely ill to attend the physical building. Still, the Church remained in her and she in the Church.

Helen leaves to mourn her sunset a large family and community beginning  with 4 children who adored her: Deborah Baldwin of Richmond, Fred Jr. of N.C., Bill Jackson of Burkeville, and Anthony Jackson of Crewe. She also thought of  Annette, Pam, and Brenda as daughters. She was a loving grandmother to Brandon, Krystal, Demetria, Danielle, Chantay, Ida, and Katina
(deceased); several  great grandchildren.

Helen also was one of 12 devoted siblings: those  surviving are James Bland, Alice Ward, Ronald Bland, Charles Bland, and Margaret Stith;

Her siblings who  preceded  her in death were Royal Bland Jr., Clarence  Edward Bland, Robert Bland,
(called Boo), Mary Sally Jones, Doretha Bland, Gerald Bland.

She also  leaves behind a  multitude of beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and loved ones whom she absolutely loved and they will miss her greatly.

She  exemplified Christianity in word and deed not only in her church, but also in her home, her neighborhood, and her heart.
Her final words: "I'm comfortable. God's got me"

"Life will never be the same
In our heart your memory lingers,
Sweetly, tender, fond and true
There is not a day, dear  Mother, we do not think of you."

Thank  you to each and  everyone for all of your encouraging words and acts of kindness.
The Family

As per Helen's wishes, she   will be cremated. *Due to Covid conditions, we will model her  sense of  responsibility to keep each other safe so, there will be no gathering for spreading of ashes held at this time to meet the moment.
