Jackson “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint,” Isaiah 40:31. Lisa Lee Jackson, age 60 years of Rockford went to her eternal home on Sunday, August 5, 2012. Lisa was born in Bethesda, Md. on August 21, 1951. She grew up in Silver Springs, Md. and graduated from Stephen Knolls School in Montgomery County. She was devoted to her family and friends, especially her Friendship Club at Blythefield CRC, and her friends at Hope Network. Lisa was very active in the community and won many ribbons and medals over the years in Special Olympics. She retired from the Cedar Springs Hope Network in June 2010. Lisa was predeceased by her parents, Charles Gerard Jackson and Hilda Fischer Jackson; her sister, Hilda Ann Jackson Russell; and brother, Charles Gerard Jackson Jr. She deeply missed them and often reminisced about their lives together. Lisa’s great-grandparents, Albert E Jackson and Isabella Kanouse Jackson, were early pioneers of Ionia, Mich. Lisa loved music and crafting. She will be remembered for her love of family and friends, and her great bright-eyed smile. Lisa was humble and compassionate and insisted that people be kind to one another and mind their manners. Her family would like to especially thank her Friendship teachers, Angie, Anita and Betty, for bringing so much joy to her life. The family is also grateful for the volunteers and staff of Faith Hospice and Trillium Woods for their care and compassion. She is survived by two nieces, Deborah Russell (Marc) Jacobsson of Rockford, and Mary Russell Caldwell (Jergen Luck)of Black River, N.Y.; and a nephew, David M. Russell of St Charles, Mo. Lisa also has eight great-nieces and nephews, Alex Jacobsson, Alisha Jacobsson, Rebekah Jacobsson, Elizabeth Jacobsson, Rachel Jacobsson, and Josiah Jacobsson, all of Rockford, and Matthew Luck and Kevin Luck of Black River, N.Y.
