Mary loved music, she liked to dance, and she was an avid sports fan. Mary was a fashionable woman who always matched from head to toe. She was a kind-hearted and loving mother who appreciated life and lived it to the fullest. She loved to party and was a wonderful cook who would often invite individuals from the neighborhood over for a hot meal.

Mary had a great love for her family and spent her free time socializing with them on the weekends and traveling back and forth to Louisiana. She is preceded in death by her father and mother; her sister Gladysteen Cartwright and her brothers. James, Lee, Henry, Clarence, and Frank Cartwright.

To cherish her memory, Mary leaves her son: William Jackson Jr. (Cherina); three grandchildren: Orion Jackson, William D Jackson III, and Mykel Parris; and her sister Willie B Burks, all of Las Vegas, NV. Mary also leaves behind many nieces and nephews.
