Lettie Mae Jackson was born on April 16, 1943. She was the daughter of the late Buford Jackson and Juanita Nesehe. She was the eldest of 14 children.
She joined Faith Missionary Baptist Church in 1990 under the leadership of Pastor Jimmie Ed Fincher. While there she was a faithful member. She loved her church and her church family. She was a God-fearing woman. Church family remember…her pig feet, her spaghetti salad, her dressing, her cornbread?
