Muriel Jane Jackson passed away on February 1, 2023 at age 95. Muriel was a loving mother, wife, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved staying connected to her family, watching her backyard birds and caring for her flowers. We will all remember her determination and her beautiful smile.

Muriel is preceded in death by her husband, Allyn, of 49 years, with whom she raised her children and enjoyed years of traveling and camping; and Frank, with whom she renewed their friendship after 60 years and enjoyed 11 years of companionship.
She is survived by three children: Susan Oare and husband Tom of Tulsa, Oklahoma; David Jackson and wife Lynn of Cumming, Georgia; Donna Morris and husband Marc of Cumming, Georgia; five grandchildren: Mark Oare, Amy Oare, Christopher Jackson, Kelly Bryan and Natalie Morris; and six great-grandchildren.
