Minnie Rebecca Carter Jackson was born on November 19, 1937 in Talbot County to the late Willie and Hattie (Walton) Carter. She was one of 9 children.
Minnie, her sisters and brothers lived near the Talbot County’s Peach Packing House on Packing House Road. It was known for peaches and a railroad track near their family home.
Minnie was baptized at an early age at Powell Baptist Church. She moved her membership from Powell Baptist Church in Talbotton, GA to Valley Grove Baptist Church in Woodland (Tax), GA. Minnie lived and raised her family in Shiloh GA until her homegoing.
Minnie was married to Copeland Jackson on April 7th, 1958 in Talbot County. Their union of 60 plus years brought forth five children; 4 girls and 1 son. Minnie and Cope encouraged them to embrace a path that would include love, faith and most importantly family. Minnie set the example to stay prayerful, think positively, and be the best that you could be. She believed if you can dream it; you can be it.
Minnie was masterful at almost anything she set her mind to. She could cook like the most famous chefs. Her biscuits and sweet potato cobbler are legendary. She could sew clothes like the best in the New York City garment district. Most of her children’s clothes were sewn by her. The ball gowns, suits, and outfits were most memorable. She enjoyed taking nature walks and gardening. She aspired to be a beautician and loved styling hair and making everyone look beautiful. Most of all she was skilled at bringing people together. She welcomed everyone into the warmth of her family home, no one left without feeling her touch and she never turned anyone away.
Minnie set her sights on working with kids in the school system. She nurtured neighborhood kids, the church youth, cheerleaders, sports and band parents, and the school kids. She has supported and mentored many generations of kids in the county schools.
She retired from Talbot County Schools on May 24, 2000. She departed this life on March 19, 2021 at the age of 83.
