I loved Ms. Jackson! She taught me math at Wilco Junior High in the 80s and was the sponsor of the yearbook staff. I was just showing my son an ornament she gave me the year I was editor, and it's hung on my Christmas tree every year since! I left Wilkinson County for college and didn't return after I graduated, but many times when I was home, I went to visit Ms. Jackson and say "Hello!" She will be dearly missed!

I used to help “Miss Ginger” decorate her home at Christmas when she lived in Jeffersonville, rode to school with her, took piano lessons from her, rode to Memas to eat and see my boyfriend ( now husband of 35 years), and just enjoyed her friendship. She was such a wonderful teacher and friend. I hate that I lost touch with her. So many wonderful memories❤️😢😢

Ginger was a dear friend who I enjoyed working with in the Wilkinson County School System. She was a loving person who enjoyed sharing her many talents. Our paths have not crossed often in the past few years but her friendship will always be in my heart and memories. Sincere sympathy to her family and friends.
