Obituary & Celebration of Life
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God
through Our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the Glory of God.
Romans 5: 1-2
Myra B. Jackson was truly a loving and giving woman who served the Lord with a quiet - caring and graceful spirit. She was born in Oakland, California on June 28, 1948, to the parents of George Jack McDonald Sr. and Ruby Mae McDonald. Myra was the first of four siblings from this blessed union. During her early years, the family moved to Los Angeles, California to be surrounded by other family members. As a teenager, Myra did well in school and received many complements from her teachers for being well mannered and quite in class. Soon after, she graduated from Fremont High School of Los Angeles, California.
In years to follow, she met and married Thomas Jackson with three sons and one daughter in this union: Dorsey, Darryl, Anitra and Monzale. She worked many years for the City of Downey where she retired. Afterwards, Myra worked diligently as a care giver.
Her purpose of life was fulfilled according to God’s plan, but she will always be a “Gem” to our hearts. Her gifts and talent of the spirit was a servant; and she loved walking in her gifts. Silver and Gold she did not have ~ but whatever she had she shared. But, most important of all she adored and loved the Lord Jesus with all of her heart.

McDonald Jr., one sister Deborah Lee; three sons: Dorsey, Darryl, Monzale; one daughter Anitra; four grandchildren: Caprice, Dorsey Jr., Star, Alexis and two great-grandchildren.
