Mary Jackson Obituary

Mary Lee Jackson, 72 years old, departed on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, while being comforted by her son (Adam) and granddaughter (Ny‘Eve). She was born February 26, 1951, in Mullins, South Carolina to the late James Andrew Jackson and Lila Mae Jackson.

Mary spent her younger years in Horry County before deciding to enlist into the United States Air Force. She served as a supply sergeant while stationed in Alaska and Delaware during the Vietnam War period. After leaving the military she went to a technical school in Washington, D.C. to get certified as an inventory specialist while working full-time as a security guard. Mary left the city life to return home to Nichols, SC, where she reconnected with Christ at her original church, Oak Grove Baptist Church, which was founded by her father, the late James Andrew Jackson. She continued to Oak Grove Baptist Church attend even after moving to Mullins, SC where she joined the Beulah United Methodist Church in Mullins, SC. Mary was a member of the choir, United Methodist Women’s group and the church secretary. She also attended Beulah’s sister church, Shiloh United Methodist Church, in Fork, SC.

Mary is best known as ‘Ms. Mary from Walmart’, where she worked in various departments such as Electronics, Cosmetics, and Layaway. During her employment at that establishment, you could find Ms. Mary working diligently with a smile on her face. She devoted 23 years of service to the Walmart corporation and was instrumental to the early development of Walmart stores as they cascaded over the Low Country area. Even after retiring, Mary devoted herself to the community by helping deliver meals to other seniors at Meals on Wheels.

She had two sisters and two brothers who preceded her in death: Carlene Jackson of Manning, SC, Ethel Mae Curry of Nichols, SC, James Andrew Jackson Jr. of Nichols, SC, and Tony Jackson of High Point, NC.
