Peggy Jean Jackson Obituary


Peggy Jean Jackson, of St. Charles, MO and formerly of Hannibal, MO, a beacon of love and creativity, passed away peacefully on June 11, 2024, at the age of 90 in St. Charles, MO.


Graveside services will be held at 11:30 AM on Saturday, June 15, 2024 at the Grand View Burial Park in Hannibal, MO. Rev. Tim Goodman will officiate.

There will be no visitation.


The family is being served by the James O’Donnell Funeral Home of Hannibal, MO.


Born on October 11, 1933, in Oakwood, MO, to Leslie and Pauline Crisswell Gibbons, Peggy was a cherished member of her community and a beloved matriarch of her family.

She was married to her childhood sweetheart, J.W. Jackson. He preceded her in death in 2000.


Peggy, known for her warmth and kindness, is survived by a loving family that includes her daughter, Jeanne Delawder (Robert Eades) of St. Charles, MO; her son, Mark Jackson (Karen) of St. Louis, MO; her adoring grandchildren, Julie Bell (Tom), Jason Eisenbath (Rebecca), Jessica Delawder, and Matthew Jackson (Melissa Bartell); and her cherished great-grandchildren, Jordyn, Hannah, Elaina, Cole, Jackson, Gage, and Macie. She also leaves behind a nephew, Michael Gibbons (Sylvia); a niece, Trish Gibbons (John); and her sister-in-law, Ruth Funk and her son, Neil Funk (Kathy). Peggy's life was enriched by the love and bonds she shared with her extended family and friends.


Before her peaceful passing, Peggy was reunited in spirit with her late parents, her husband, J.W., her brother Russell Gibbons, her son-in-law Don Delawder, and a special friend, Herb Howard, who all preceded her in death. Their memories remain a testament to the strong family ties she nurtured throughout her life.


Peggy's talents as a seamstress were well-known and admired. She showcased her skill and artistry while working for The Famous in Hannibal, MO. However, her true joy was found in being a homemaker and raising her family, a role she embraced with passion and dedication. Peggy was the heart of her home, a place filled with love, laughter, and the aroma of her famous oatmeal cookies.


Her interests were as varied as they were fascinating. Peggy was an accomplished artist, painting in oils, winning awards, and always eager to learn more through art lessons. Her charcoal sketches and ceramics were a testament to her diverse artistic abilities. Peggy's creative spirit was also evident in her love for crafts and quilting, often sharing her creations with those she loved.


A gifted cook, Peggy was renowned for her divinity and fudge as much as her oatmeal cookies. Her culinary delights were the highlight of many family gatherings and are fondly remembered by all who had the pleasure of tasting them. She also had a passion for collecting dolls, each one with its own story and place in her heart.


Traveling was one of Peggy's greatest joys, whether it was returning to her roots in Hannibal, MO, to peruse the craft and fabric shops on Main Street or embarking on memorable trips. A trip to Hawaii with her husband, J.W., and visits to the beaches of North Carolina to spend time with her grandchildren were among her most cherished memories.


Loving, kind, and creative are the words that best describe Peggy. Her presence was a gift to those who knew her, and her legacy of love and artistry will live on through her family and the many lives she touched. Peggy's spirit, her love for family and friends, and her passion for life will be deeply missed but never forgotten.


As we bid farewell to Peggy Jean Jackson, we celebrate a life well-lived, a life filled with love, creativity, and the joy of sharing her gifts with the world. Her memory will continue to inspire and comfort those who were fortunate enough to have known her.

Memorial contributions may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.
