Margaret Louise Harris Brown was born on February 25, 1922 in Anniston, Alabama to Verdi Mae Harris and Jesse Brown. She was an only child and was selfless in nature. Her formative years were spent in Anniston, Alabama, Southern California, and providence led her to Chicago, Illinois. She attended Chicago Public Schools, graduating from DuSable High School. During her High School years, Margaret used her lovely singing voice in choirs, and her singing continued throughout her life.

Margaret was an avid reader and lifelong learner. Her work experiences included: a neighborhood Daycare Center, several department stores, such as Carson Pirie Scott, Jackson Fuel and Trucking Company, and she retired after many years of assisting a well-known physician in Chicago, Il.
A co-worker at a catalog house at which she worked introduced her to the love of her life, Clarence W. Jackson. Clarence and Margaret were united in holy matrimony on January 12, 1947 and shared 46 years of marriage.

Marriage to Clarence connected Margaret to the amazing Jackson family. She became a daughter to Elder and Mrs. Berestful W. Jackson. Once again, providence led her to attend a service at the newly constructed “Voice In The Wilderness Community Church”. During the service, Margaret sensed an unusual prompting to move out of her seat and go forward to accept Christ. She committed her life to the Lord that day and never looked back.

The spiritual transformation in Margaret’s life led her to serve God with every fiber of her being. She often stated the words of a hymn that states “He called me long before I heard”. Sister Margaret, as she was lovingly called, served as a Sunday School Teacher and Superintendent, Bible School Teacher, as a faithful choir member and also as the president of the choir.

After leaving the Chicago area, she lived in Columbus, Ohio, where she attended the Northside Church of God and served as the leader of Weekly Noonday Prayer, and as a deaconess and prayer warrior. She was a lover of the Word of God. Margaret and her daughter, the late Dr. Sharon L. Jackson, heeded the call of God to unite with New Covenant Believers’ Church (NCBC), where she remained a faithful member until the time of her departure from this life. She loved Bishop, Lady Tillman and her church family. When she moved to Urbana, Ohio to live with her daughter, Antoinette and Son-in love, Alan Ware, she was not always able to attend NCBC, but she would press her way to the house of God at the Catherine Street First Church of God where the Ware’s attend and serve in ministry. She was graciously included in the fellowship by Pastor Todd, First Lady Watson and the saints at Catherine Street First Church of God in Springfield, Ohio.

Mother Margaret Louise Jackson departed this life with victory on Thursday, July 30, 2020. She was preceded in death by her husband, the late Clarence W. Jackson and her daughter, Dr. Sharon Lynn Jackson. She leaves to celebrate her life, legacy and memory: Her children; Antoinette (Alan) Ware, Pastor Joseph William (Theresa) Jackson, Karen Rose (Pastor Thomas) Spencer; Grandchildren: Margaret E. (John) Howell, Maria E. Ware Patterson, Marcia E. (David) Wilder, Alan Clarence (Deena) Ware, Farran Rose Jackson, Christian Rae Jackson, Faith Rynae Jackson; Great Grandchildren: Meghan Elizabeth (Thomas) Odom, Hannah Elizabeth Patterson, Courtney Michelle Howell, Haley Elizabeth Ware, Alan Clarence Ware, Jr., and Great-Great Grandchildren, Amira E. and Amari J. Odom; Sisters in love; Mercer H. Billheimer and Mattie Harris; Nieces and cousins: Caramen, Daphne, Julia, Verdi, Cora, Jocelyn, Francis (Jack), Charles, Tony (Adren), Michele, Raven, Essence, Sybil, Larry (Kathleen), Ron, the Maryland and Virginia cousins, godchildren, extended family, friends, spiritual children and other loved ones.

Absolutely beautiful service. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to be a part of Mother Jackson's Homegoing Service. The grandchildren really touched my heart, and the children of Mother Jackson are beautiful inside and out. It was so great to "see" my Georgia pastor. p.s. he did sneak a sermon, but every word was a tremendous blessing 😊 God bless you Pastor Joe. Thank you for sharing your mother with me. I will forever cherish her words of wisdom. My heart is with you all 💜

I had the pleasure of serving as Mother Jackson’s pastor for a short time during my tenure as pastor of Northside Deliverance Church of God. She was the epitome of a Godly and loving woman who demonstrated excellence of character and spirit. My mother in the Gospel, Bishop E. L’Tanya Lemon demonstrated the imperative of loving and honoring Mother Jackson. I continued that honor during my tenure. My heart is so full of memories and love. The realm of this present reality has been adversely impacted by her departure. We bless and honor the memory of Mother Margaret Louise Jackson. To my mother in grace and love, Antoinette (Poppy) Ware, you cared for Mother in the spirit of love, duty, and excellence. Mother Jackson wanted for nothing because you gave her everything. I bless you for prolonging the days of our dear and sainted mother. The Lord will not forget your labor of love, which you have rendered to our Sainted Mother Margaret Louise Jackson.
