Catherine Jackson was born on March 4, 1952 to Gladys Jackson and Murphy Jackson in Independence, Louisiana. Her adopted father was Noah Lee Jackson of Detroit, Michigan. Catherine was a wonderful daughter and was loved by all who had the opportunity to know her. She was affectionately known as “Cat” to her family and close friends.
At the age of seven, the family moved to San Diego California, where Catherine attended Stockton Elementary and Snyder School. Catherine enjoyed going places with her friends and being around her family, as well as raising her grand-children and great grand-daughter. Her happiness came from helping her Mother and children in their lives, as well as others around her. Catherine was known for having a big heart because she did not like to see others struggle. She would do whatever was in her power to give a hand to someone else in need. Catherine accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized in 2014.
Surrounded by her loved ones and lifted in prayer, Catherine was called home on October 3, 2019. She was preceded in death by her Aunt Georgia Stevenson and beloved son, Tony Christopher Jackson. Although the end of her life has brought sorrow, Catherine remained cheerful and was telling jokes until her last day. Her main concern was the well being of her family, and she encouraged everyone to keep a positive outlook on life.
Catherine is survived by her mother Gladys Jackson and Carlton Noble of San Diego. Her children Lenette Anderson and Daryl Henderson of San Diego; grandchildren Michael Singleton, Shante Henderson, Shavonda Cones, Marquan Williams, Shiauna Jackson, Anayah Jackson, and Destinee Jackson; and great-granddaughter Mia Gunn, all of San Diego. She also embraced Patrick and Kendrick, “Stank”, as her grandchildren.
