Erma Randle Jackson was a childhood friend beginning with days at West Side Elementary School. Even then, she was a very stylish dresser. As an adult,
Erma was a well-known educator, planted beautiful flower gardens and was a
community servant. Mr. William Jackson and family: may the compassion and love of God sustain you during your time of bereavement.

Ms. Jackson was a snappy dresser and she always looked her best. I was acquainted with Ms. Jackson through her volunteer service as the Phillips County representative on the Board of Directors of the East Arkansas Area Agency on Aging. She graciously and passionately served the seniors of her county for over 22 years. Her presence at our meetings and contributions to our programs will be greatly missed.

Our prayers are with the family for their loss.
