July 20, 1924 ~ December 4, 2017
Eva was born in East Bank, West Virginia on July 20, 1924, to Cora and Richard Grooms. In the late 1940s she moved to the Peninsula with her husband, Reginald N. Jackson, Sr. whom she lovingly called "Jack." She worked at the Phyllis Wheatley Branch of the YWCA as a secretary for more than twenty years. Over the course of her life she took immense pride in her home and relished in a competitive game of pinochle with friends.
A life celebration for Eva G. Jackson will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 6, 2018. The memorial will be held at the YWCA Virginia Peninsula, Phyllis Wheatley Branch at 2702 Orcutt Avenue in Newport News, Virginia.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Eva's memory can be made to the Alzheimer's Association (800-272-3900; P. O. Box 9601, Washington, D.C. 20090; www.alz.org).
