Mabel C. Jackson of Calgary, passed away on Monday, November 24, 2008 at the age of 95 years.
Mabel spent her adult years in North Battleford, SK in the nursing profession where she met her loving husband of 51 years, Harold. On their retirement they spent the winters in Mesa, AZ dancing, shuffling and playing cards, and the summers in Oliver, BC, golfing and gardening. After Harold passed away, Mabel moved to Calgary to be closer to her daughters.
Mabel is survived by her loving daughters and son-in-law, Shirley Jackson of Calgary and Terry and Bob McFarlane of Okotoks; grandson Chad Jackson McFarlane; great grandson Roegen Jackson Matheson.
The last poem she recited was:
The Last Rose of Summer
‘Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions are faded and gone;
No flow’r of her kindred,
No rosebud is nigh
To reflect back her blushes,
Or give sigh for sigh
Interment will be later in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.
In living memory of Mabel Jackson, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.Print This Obituary & Condolences
