Suellen Marjorie (O'Connor) Jackson


Suellen Marjorie O’Connor Jackson, 74, of Sanford passed away on February 6, 2022.

Suellen was born on March 17, 1947, in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin to Russell and Rosemary O’Connor. She met the love of her life, Edward in 1970 then later married in 1973 at Ft Shafter, Hawaii. Edward’s next assignment took them to Korea where they adopted Meggan and Suellen gave birth to Brian. Later, when they lived in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, she gave birth to Gregory.

For many years, Suellen worked at Hope Mills Family Medicine as an LPN, before completing her master’s degree in counselling at Fayetteville State University. She loved to crochet and prayed while making blankets that she gave to many people in her life.

All Suellen wanted to do was help children.

Suellen is preceded in death by her parents, Russell and Rosemary Dunn O’Connor and sister, Karen Spiering. She is survived by her beloved husband, Edward Jackson; daughter, Meggan L. Jackson of High Point, NC; son, Brian D. and Rachel Jackson of Sykesville, MD; son, Gregory P. and Emily Jackson of Durham, NC; and six brothers and sisters.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 12:15 Pm at St. Ann Catholic Church on Monday, February 14, 2022, with Father Mike officiating. The family will greet friends prior the service from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Woman’s Giving Circle- Summertime Kids. If anyone who has one of Suellen’s blankets would like to bring it and place on the back of their pew, it would be a beautiful display of her loving spirit.

The Family requests masks be worn during the services for everyone’s safety, thank you in advance.
