The Life of Mrs. Ossie Mae Jackson Wright (Eastman, GA)
“Oh it’s not a surprise, please do not weep for me, God needed a special gift back home and it was indeed me, I’m rejoicing with the angels and dancing down the streets of gold, I’m home, I am indeed home. No more sickness, no more pain. I’m celebrating with Jesus in my new home.”
Ossie was loved by many. To know her was no ordinary experience; it was extraordinary joy. Ossie was born in Eastman, Georgia to the late Augustus J. Jackson and Ossie Brown Jackson.
Ossie’s relationship with the Lord grew and was cultivated at New Salem CME Church in Eastman; where she maintained her commitment to the Lord and was a devoted member until the Lord called her home.
She attended Bozeman School in Hawkinsville and the Dodge County School System.
Ossie worked diligently through the years at The Carriage Inn, the Shirt Factory, Hardy Candy Company, Middle Georgia Nursing Home, Gilman Paper Company, Dodge County Hospital, and later retired from Ocmulgee Electric Corporation.
Ossie was a loving person who enjoyed spending time with her family. She loved to cook, care for others, and was a light in the eyes of those who knew and loved her. Her favorite singer was Barry White. She loved his smooth voice. Her favorite song was “Something About the name Jesus”.
