Evelyn Deaver Jackson, 97, of Oak Ridge, went to be with her Lord on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at Methodist Medical Center. She was an amazing soul, you could say, she never met a stranger.

After marrying Woodrow Jackson Sr., they moved with their three sons to Oak Ridge in 1953, and became members of Central Baptist Church in 1954. She later moved her membership to Fairview Baptist Church and later came back to Central. She was a Sunday school teacher and Youth Director.
She was a stay at home mom taking care of her family. She enjoyed vacations with family, reading, QVC, and gospel music, along with God’s word. She loved talking and witnessing to people, sharing her life and God’s word.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by husband Woodrow Jackson Sr; sister, Vivian Adams; sons, Woodrow Jackson Jr., and William David Jackson.
She is survived by son, John Russell Jackson and wife Wanda and their daughter Wendy Jackson;
