Obituary of Wanda Elaine Jackson

Please share a memory of Wanda to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Wanda Elaine Jackson or Elaine as she was known to most was born October 4, 1961 in Atlanta, Georgia. She was one of four children but the only daughter born to the union of Otis C Jackson Sr and Juanita (Kirkland) Epps.  Elaine attended Monroe High School in Monroe, Michigan graduating with the class of 1979.  To provide for her family Elaine worked as a teacher’s aide for over twenty years for the Monroe Public Schools. After retiring from the schools, Elaine took employment in the housekeeping department at Fountain View Nursing Home in Monroe, Michigan retiring after five years in February of 2024.

Elaine married three times and out of those unions she was blessed with two children, a daughter; LaWanda Stacy Jackson and a son; Cameron Calbert. Elaine loved to cook most anything but her spaghetti was the dish everyone craved. She like to design interior and exterior designs and landscapes.  Being a woman who was always on the go and not one to sit still she loved to work and clean but always found the time to take care of her family and grandchildren.

Wanda Elaine Jackson, age 62 of Monroe, Michigan passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday June 26, 2024. Her passing was preceded by her parents Otis and Juanita (Jackson)Epps and her brother; Robert L. Jackson.
