Wilda was married to Frederick Lewis Jackson, who preceded her in death in 1980.

A wonderful wife, mother and grandmother, Wilda took great pride in spoiling her family. In addition to being a caregiver to several family members, she was a farmer who loved raising animals and tending her garden. She enjoyed taking care of her flowers and will be remembered as a wonderful cook and one who never met a stranger. Mrs. Jackson was also a member of Burnsville United Methodist Church and the Women’s Group.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her son-in-law, Tommy Keyser.

A funeral service will be held at 12 noon, Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Burnsville United Methodist Church with Rev. Lorrie Aikens and Pastor Donald Lee Altizer officiating. Burial will follow in Burnsville Cemetery.

Active pallbearers will be her grandsons, Drew, Ryan and Ben Adcock, David, Mason and Matthew Keyser, Tommy Jackson and James Rexrode.
