Claudia Louise (Williams) Jackson, 82, passed peacefully into eternity late evening Jan. 27, 2013. A 35-year resident of Forest Park, Mrs. Jackson was surrounded by loved ones at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, where she resided for the past six years. She was born June 18, 1930, in Westminster, S.C., to William Allen and Leah Delaine (Collins) Williams. Mrs. Jackson was preceded in death by husband of 37 years, Thomas William Jackson, and daughters MaryJean (Jeanie ) Macie on May 28, 1996, and Betty Wright on Jan. 26, 2013, and grandson Joshua Derrick Reagin July, 9, 2005.
Mrs. Jackson (Mawmaw) had “a little bit of love for everybody,” and a lot of love for the Braves. As a caregiver in the Armed forces hospitals, and then a faithful 17 years as greeter at Waffle House, Mawmaw was in the business of serving others. She was known for her loving ways, her love of music, “slow dances at the waffle house,” quick wit, memorable stories and … “jokes,” she always left you with a smile.
Surviving Mawmaw are her daughter and son-in-law, Sandra “Sam” and Brad Bringle; son-in-law, Craig Wright; sister, Mae Whiten; grandchildren Sean and Autumn Reagin, Brittney and Mike Cearley, Christy Clark, Branden Macie, Brian Macie, Jennifer and Keith Williams, Anna and Blake Rainwater, Brandie and Clint Gossett and 17 great-grandchildren.
