A woman of love, honor, courage and all around goodness has left her family and friends creating a void in our lives; but not without leaving behind the wonderful memories of her "Love for Life".
  Natalie Dianne Jackson, 31. lifelong resident of the Falkner Community , passed away Sunday morning October 29, 2017 at her residence.
  Funeral Services honoring the Christian life of Natalie will be at 2 PM Wednesday November 1 at Mt. Zion Cumberland Presbyterian Church with church pastor and long time friend, Bro. Richie Lockhart officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. Arrangements will be provided by The Ripley Funeral Home.
  Born May 9, 1986 , the daughter of Benny and Wanda Garrison Jackson of Falkner. Natalie was a 2004 graduate of Falkner High School. She received her Bachelor's Degrees in Psychology and Biology from Blue Mountain College.
  Natalie will be remembered for her love of her family, her friends, her church and her community.
  These words were spoken from the heart by her loving family...
  "Natalie Dianne-
  Tough. Genuine. Spunky Real. She was honest and lived a vibrant life for Christ. She loved her Savior and wanted others to love and believe in Him also. Her struggles were real and she attacked them with the quiet determination that most missed.
  Natalie Dianne did it right. She loved you, me and the stranger on the street. She lived with raw honesty about her struggles, her dreams and desires and we loved her for it. She touched people. If you were lucky enough to be called her friend you knew that under that quiet smile was real personality, a little sass and a whole lot of spunk and maybe a little sarcasm...She had a real heart for people and if wanted to see her animated just ask about her animals--goats, dogs, and donkeys, oh my....
  In the last chapter we wanted the underdog to win, to overcome her health issues and live life abundantly, with no encumberments . You know a Hallmark ending... complete with the Knight in shining armor (Kevin), sunset and a sloppy kiss. It was not to be or was it. You see the same God who breathed life into her ten years ago in the MED, had the hair on her head numbered, he sang over her and called her by name. She was His He was hers. While I don't believe she is wearing Angel wings... (Wouldn't she like that, sequins and all).. I do believe she is worshipping at the feet of her Savior. I can just hear him whispering well done good and faithful servant, well done. You have finished the race, you have fought the good fight, you, my child are faithful. And she was. Thank you Nat for living your testimony our loud! I am so very proud to call you my niece and sister in Christ. Until we meet again sweet sister, until we meet again!"
  A Visitation for Ms. Jackson will continueWednesday until service time at Mt. Zion Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
  In addition to her parents, those left to cherish her memory include her sister, Hannah Marie Jackson of Falkner, her maternal grandparents, Harold and Margaret Garrison of Ripley, her aunts and uncles, Stan and Paula Childs, Bobby and Nancy Bailey and William David Garrison, her cousins that she loved dearly, Beau Childs, Cole Childs (Jessica), Lukas Garrison (Marcy), Autumn Stone (Stephen), Lance Garrison, Nicole Garrison, Anna Hardin (Anthony), Matt Bailey (Liz), Chloe Noe (Drew) , Aaron Bailey and her fiancee, Kevin Jones of Corinth.
  Natalie was also preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, J.C. and Callie Gaillard , her great grandmother, Ana A. O'Connell and an uncle Richard Eugene Garrison.
