Mable Teague Jackson


Mable Emogene Teague Jackson


April 19, 1916 – June 22, 2018




“I sing because I’m happy.  I sing because I’m free!  His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me!….”  Mable Emogene Teague Jackson, age 102, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, went into the arms of her beloved Savior, Jesus Christ, on Friday the 22nd of June, 2018.




Born April 19, 1916, in Cleburne, Texas, Mable attended the College of Marshall for two years (back then, known as “Little Baylor,” and today known as East Texas Baptist University), getting her General Ed degree. She then went on to receive a degree in nursing from Southern Baptist Hospital, New Orleans. While in training, she worked with Dr. Michael DeBakey (renowned for his heart surgery methods), who was an intern at the time from Tulane. Mable took great pride in assisting Dr. BeBakey with his newly developed blood transfusion technique. After graduation and marriage, Mable was blessed to work in the infirmary at Florida State University—where she became an avid Seminole fan.  She also did private-duty nursing, and later worked at Johnson County Memorial Hospital in Cleburne, Texas, until her retirement in the 1980s.




Mable loved her family and whenever she could, she would travel as far as Seoul, Korea, and Hawaii to spend time with them while her son Tom served with the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board (now the International Mission Board). When her grandsons attended college at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, she moved to Charleston to be there for them and offer loving support.




She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Tom and Lynn Jackson of Albuquerque, New Mexico; three wonderful grandchildren, J.Owen Jackson of Graham, North Carolina, Justin Jackson of Hartford, Wisconsin, and Caitlynn Jackson of Monterey, California; two beautiful granddaughters-in-law, Amy, wife of J.Owen, and Stephanie, wife of Justin; six precious great grandchildren, Anna, Davis, Elizabeth, Sarah, Kendall, and Porter Jackson; as well as three nieces, Darla Rich, Debbie Smith, and Marti Mayben, who reside in Mable’s blue bonnet home state of Texas. She was pre-deceased by her husband, Lehman E. Jackson, in 1974. Her favorite Bible passage was Proverbs 31:10-31.




Riverside Funeral Home has been entrusted with final arrangements. At Mable’s request, a private family memorial service will be held at a future date in Charleston, SC. Memorial gifts may be made to Hoffmantown Church, Attn: Special Missions Fund, 8888 Harper Drive NE, Albuquerque, NM 87111.
