Martha was born on September 13, 1948 in Gilmore, Arkansas to the late Clarence and Rosie Lee Jackson.
Martha lived in Chicago, Illinois, attended Oakenwald Elementary, DuSable High School and Kennedy King College. She was a long time employee of One Stop Foods. She resided briefly in Terre Haute, Indiana until her move to St. Paul, Minnesota.
Martha was the eldest child and you knew she was the BIG SISTER. She leaves us all with so many memories of her jokes, stories, and dances. She always had a story to tell and will have you bent over laughing. The smiles and laughs will never be forgotten.
