Cora Bell Jackson

July 27, 1940 — December 17, 2021

Cora Jackson, age 81, passed away on December 17, 2021. Cora was born in Rensselaer, IN, to Lawrence Hittle and Cora Hittle. She was preceded in death by her father Lawrence Hittle, mother Cora Hittle, husband James Jackson, and two sons; Anthony Jackson, and Raymond Cavinder.

Cora was never one to show a lot of affection, but always got a hug from her grandkids. She was never one to say she loved you, but she always managed to show you. A slight mention of liking something in a store would often lead to receiving that same item as a gift. She truly believed that if you wanted something, you should just buy it now before it's gone. Cora loved any and all basketball, including high school games. Her favorite basketball players were Michael Jordan and Colby Bryant who played for the Lakers. Cora also loved baseball and became a fan of the Cardinals when she moved to Missouri. Although, she's still root for her Cubbies when she got a chance.

Cora loved watching her funny ladies (The Golden Girls) and watched every episode over and over. She loved shopping and was a collector of dolls, ceramic chickens, ceramic ducks, ceramic deer, and... Well, you get the idea. Cora started waiting tables in 1954, when she was just fourteen years old. She loved working and continued working until October of this year, when her health began to decline.

Cora loved working at Rosie Jo's and her loved her co-workers, along with her customers. Cora could remember a customers order and where they sat four months prior. She was very good and never showed that she was willing to stop, even at the end.

Cora married James Jackson in October of 1962. She loved her husband James and never even contemplated dating after he passed away twenty-five years ago. Cora always said "Didn't want to train another one" and wanted to do what she wanted without permission"

Cora loved her grandkids and was truly proud of all of them and happy that she was able to see them grow up. She loved her girls, her sons, her friends, and all those grandkids, immensely.
