Our beloved mother, Evelyn Julia Jackson, also known by her grandchildren as “GG” departed her loving family on Sunday, March 24, 2024, surrounded by her family prior to her passing. Evelyn was born to Richard and Dorothy Jackson on October 22, 1936, in Passaic, New Jersey.

She attended Girls High School in Brooklyn, New York. She later moved to Los Angeles, California where she attended medical schools. She went on to nursing school, where she became a Nurse Practitioner. She worked for Kaiser Permanente for 20 years. She then attended Dental School to become a Dental Hygienist.

Evelyn is survived by her daughters, Brooke Jackson, Robin Robinson (Anthony); sons, Eugene Mosley, Jr. and Craig Jackson; grandchildren, Mica Jackson (Ian), D’Nico Best (Chelsey), Antonio Robinson, Alejandro Fajardo, Erick Osorno, Jazmine Osorno, Sierra Limbrick and Jeremiah Limbrick; great grandchildren, Bryson Best and Juliana Best. Special thanks to a loving and caring son-in-law, Anthony Robinson whom she cherished so much; other relatives, Mathias, Genesis, Deborah, Desiree, Dione, Susan, Angie, Mark and fabulous Phyllis Jones; a host of celebrity friends.

She was a true Diva. Our mother was so full of life and love. She enjoyed being around family and friends. Kind-hearted, funny and so compassionate for others. She enjoyed reading her Bible, word search/crossword puzzles, shopping and socializing. She was very friendly and enjoyed helping others. She was easy-going and good-natured, sacrificing her own happiness or comfort to keep the peace with others or for others. She had a loving and humble spirit. Our beautiful, loving mother will be missed and remembered and loved “forever”.
