Gwen resided in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where she was raised in the North Philadel-phia community. She received her education through the parochial school system attending her elementary years at Gesu School completing her studies and graduating from John W. Hallahan School for Girls. After completing high school, Gwen enrolled at Temple University and Saint Joseph’s University taking evening courses while working full-time at Bell Telephone and the Naval Supply Depot. On February 24, 1962 Gwendolyn was united in marriage to Thomas Lazaro Jackson and from this union came one daughter, Alicia Cassandra.
For many years Gwen was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her dedication extended to her church family as she and Thomas relocating from West Philadelphia to Mt. Airy where they became members of Saint Raymond of Penafort Church. In later years, Gwendolyn became a member of Saint Athanasius Church. Enjoying life, Gwen was very active in her community. For many years she was the assigned “classroom mother” at Saint Raymond’s School where Alicia was a student. Being the active mother, she became friendly with all the parents and children.

2 Oct 2007
Marion Genevieve Jackson of Millsboro departed this life Saturday, Sept. 29, 2007, in Christiana Care-Christina Hospital, Newark, surrounded by her children and family. She was 76. She was the daughter of the late Isaac Wilson Jr. and Myrtle Elizabeth (Samons) Harmon, and was born March 4, 1931. Marion was the fourth child born into a family of 13 children.
She learned early about caring for others. Sometimes life was not always easy or fair, but she made mistakes and learned from them. Marion became a mother early and had eight children of her own. Most of those years were spent being a single parent. During Marion"s earlier years, she attended the Richard Allen School to the eighth grade. Marion stopped going to school and helped care for her siblings allowing her mother to work. Marion was a woman of many talents. She had worked and been involved in many things. Marion worked at the Showell Poultry Plant. She enjoyed doing hair in her home, where family and friends gathered drinking coffee and talking about life. Marion assisted with the Girl Scouts, polls for the election board, and CHEER. She was owner of Lad & Lassie Day Care. Later, Marion worked in the cafeteria for the Indian River School District and at Dollar General. Not to mention baby sitting and helping raise her grandchildren. Marion was a member of the Nanticoke Indian Association. She enjoyed the years her daughter, Thomasena, played basketball and supported her at every game. Marion loved to shop and stock up on things, whether she needed it or not. She also loved each one of her animals, the animals she had and the ones she inherited from the children. Marion mentioned several times while in the hospital, "Do you think my dogs have forgotten me?" She was caring and giving. When she saw something that needed to be done, she did it without being asked. Marion also gave when it was not in her means to give. No one forgot Marion. She had calls from so many friends that checked on her progress. Her trips to the dialysis center, three times a week for over a year, she called going to work. One was never left to wonder what she thought. She would speak it plain and clear. Marion had her favorites. During this past month, Marion had gone through two major surgeries which left her paralyzed from the waist down. She never once complained nor did she blame anyone. She received it with grace and was determined to work through what had been handed to her. Marion was making plans to come home.
She was very close to her sisters, June Robbins, who stood by her and helped her during her illness, and Cecile Corsey, who preceded her in death, and her special friend, Pauline.
