Ella May (Ellie) Jackson, 95, entered the Kingdom of Heaven on Nov. 10, 2012. Ellie, a native Californian, spent the last 23 years of her life in her sunny home in Green Valley. She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Robert N. Jackson, and her son, Robert N. Jackson II. Ellie is succeeded by her loving family: David and Debbe Simons of Tubac, AZ, and Amelie and Adam Simons of Tempe, AZ.

A memorial service in Ellie's honor will be held in Green Valley on Jan. 5, 2013 at 2 p.m, at Valley Presbyterian Church, in the Spiritual Life Center. Remembrances, in lieu of flowers, may be made in her name to Valley Presbyterian Church, 2800 So. Camino del Sol, Green Valley. AZ 85614.

We will never forget her twinkling eyes and bright smile, and we will treasure her exemplary life in our hearts. The love she showered on all those she met, and her enduring influence on her family and friends will be remembered with great joy.
