June Lois Jackson, 81 of Sullivan, passed away in the comfort of home on March 4, 2020 following a period of declining health.

She was born on January 24, 1939 in Keene, NH, the daughter of the late Minnie (Robbins) and Lyle Rice, Sr. She attended area schools and graduated from Keene High School with the Class of 1957.

On October 5, 1957, Lois married Reginald Jackson. Together they enjoyed raising their two daughters, cruising in the Caribbean, and traveling the country – especially Las Vegas. They celebrated nearly 40 years of marriage before his passing in 1997.

Lois had a long-time career with Kingsbury Corporation. At the time of her retirement, Lois was employed as Manager at the Cheshire County Federal Credit Union. Outside of work, she was involved with 4-H as a leader for many years and a member of the Lutheran Church.

Independent and strong-willed, Lois was the matriarch of her family. Her amazing cooking and baking skills will not be forgotten, along with her kindness and devotion to her family.

Lois will be deeply missed by her daughters Sharon Jackson of Sullivan, NH and Jody Lowman and her husband John of Midlowthian, VA; grandchildren: Ben Knight, Patience Knight, Steven Morin, Jr, Zach Lowman, and Jake Lowman; and nine great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her husband: Reginald Jackson; siblings: Lyle Rice, Jr and Beverly Whittemore; and companion of many years: Wesley Eisner.

Sharon Jackson

These last few years with my mom have taught me how important family is. Family is about staying connected and being there for each other no matter the cost. Family is about tolerance and acceptance. Caring for mom wasn’t always easy and many times a challenge as her disease progressed. But we adjusted as a family. We got memory boards to help with her many repetitive questions and anxiety about who would be with her today and tomorrow. We had Sunday brunches on a regular basis over the past several weeks to keep her connected. And she appreciated it. She had lucid moments when she would thank me and tell me that she loved me. She also loved and appreciated her family and her caretakers; Patience, Kathy, Jack, Chayla , Alana and Ben, and others who have cared for her over the years. She especially loved having my daughter Patience with her every day. Patience was there with her everyday over the last several months. She was there with her at the most important moment of her passing.

Mom loved her home that my dad built 58 years ago. She took pride in cleaning it. My mom was great at cooking and cleaning. She never let us forget that we did not live up to her standards. Her most famous move was to take your cup and put it in the sink. Turn around for a minute and it was gone. She also had magical cooking skills. Drop by for a visit and she could instantly put a meal on the table with limited resources. When we were younger mom would make mustard or mayonnaise sandwiches for us. That’s probably all that we had at the time. I tell people that now and they have no idea what I am talking about.

I will miss you mom. Until we meet again.

I am so very sad at the loss of your Mom and grandmother Lois. I have know your mom my entire life. She is the last of my mother's first cousins on my grandmother, Madelyn Robbins Payne"s side. I always remember fondly the cookouts and get togethers at my uncle Mel and Lucille's house. My mother Charlotte and my father Wesley Blanchard used to go to dances with Reggie and Lois quite often. As a young guy working at Kinsbury's I would see her at the credit union, She always asked about my mother. I also had a chance to play cribbage with her and Mr. Eisner at the wednesday night Elks lodge cribbage league. I am sure he has some catching up to do with your Dad. I hope she is at peace. Please accept my sincere condolences. Jay Blanchard
