AKWESASNE – Mary Ellen Jackson, 64, of 18 Jackson Road, passed away early Sunday morning, January 20, 2019 at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center.

Mary Ellen was born March 5, 1954 in Syracuse, the daughter of the late Edward and Julia (Oakes) Mangan. She attended schools in Syracuse and was a graduate of Central Tech in Syracuse. On January 22, 1977, she married Michael L. Jackson in Bombay.

Mary Ellen worked for time in Syracuse before moving to Akwesasne, where she worked as a housekeeper at Iakhihsohtha and in the laundry department at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino. She also did private daycare in her home for many years. She was a member of the St. Regis Mohawk Senior Citizens and the Akwesasne Death Benefits. Mary Ellen enjoyed playing bingo, cards, watching bands, dancing, and watching her grandchildren play sports.

Mary Ellen is survived by her children, Jennifer and Frank Laughing of Akwesasne; Joanna Jackson and David Billings of Akwesasne; her grandchildren, Gracie, Mylynn, Frankie, and Jaxx Laughing and Wari, Ethan, and Beau Jackson and her foster daugther, Julie LaDue (Kyle Terrance) and her children, Aleah, Blaine, Kaprice, and Karmen. She is also survived by her sisters, Beverly, Rita, Rose, Helen, and Penny (Andrew), all of Syracuse; her brothers, Mike Oakes, Charlie, Ed (Susan), and John Mangan of Syracuse and Joe Mangan of Tupper Lake; many nieces and nephews including two nieces that were close to her heart, Kara and Jay Williams and Michelle Priola and her children, Antonio and Jacobie.

She is also survived by her husband’s family, Sarah Mitchell, Marilyn and Mike Tarbell, Liz Sunday, Linda and Doreen, and family friend, Angie Sunday.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by a brother, Richard Oakes.

I’m so sorry for the loss of this woman. My comdolences go out to the Jackson family. There’s a Scripture I’d love to share that always comforted me when I lost someone close to me in death. It’s in Revelation 21:4 which says: “And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This is a promise from God that he will end death forever in the future and we will see our loved ones again!

She is my mother and such a beautiful person. Words couldn't explain how special she was to us. To know my mother was to love her.
