Resident of Oakland, CA
Charlotte Thomas Jackson passed away peacefully on March 15, 2021 at the age of 89. She was preceded in death by her parents Rosa and Harmon Thomas and her sister Gloria Borders.
Charlotte was born on July 11, 1931 in Atlanta Georgia where she attended Booker T. Washington High School and Clark College. She moved with her young family to Oakland California in 1965.
She was an active member of the Bay Area Urban League, Peter Maurin Neighborhood House and a board member of Dimensions Dance Theater. Charlotte, also affectionately known as Bachaan by her family and friends, was a lady who opened her heart and home to all and affectionately referred to people as "puddin". She is deeply loved and missed and will be remembered as a woman with a great sense of humor and compassion for everyone who had the privilege of meeting her.
Charlotte is survived by her children Gloria Yamato, Suzan Jackson, Stephanie Christmas (Robert Christmas) and James Edwin Thomas Jackson (Meryl Jackson) and her beloved grandchildren Tatsu Yamato (Nikki Pung Yamato), Ahmad Yamato, Charlotte Jones, Christian Valteau, James Jackson, Claire Jackson and great grandchildren, including nieces, nephews and a host of family and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held for the family and close friends at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America are greatly appreciated. ALZFDN.ORG
