April 30, 1956 - April 14, 2021

Evelyn Jackson, age 64, of Mahnomen, MN, died Wednesday, April 14, 2021, at her home under the care of Hospice of the Red River Valley.

Evelyn Lorraine Jackson was born on April 30, 1956 in White Earth, MN, to Bernice Warren and Irvin Jackson. Over the years she lived in the Ponsford, White Earth and Twin Cities communities. Most recently Evelyn has made her home in Mahnomen. She was a strong mother and grandmother who genuinely caring for everyone. She loved hosting birthdays and big holiday dinners. She was also known for taking her grandchildren on car rides to watch the sunset while sharing jokes and stories. She was especially close to her grandchildren, Taylor Thunderhawk Jr, Jayden Thunderhawk, Delaynah Percy, LaTerra-Lynne Jackson, Angel "Cortez" Jones and Miigwan Percy. When Evelyn wasn't caring for her own family, she was often checking in on her sisters, Karen and Bev. Evelyn's world revolved around her family. She always kept a clean home and an open door for anyone who may stop by. With many mouths to feed, Evelyn became very good at stretching her funds. She especially loved to garage sale, thrift shop and find a good deal, not only for herself but for anyone who may need it. Her loving heart and generous spirit will be missed by many.

Evelyn is survived by her daughters: Denise "Neicey" Tucker, Sara Percy, and Carrie McDougall; sons: Michael "Mikey" Jackson, William "Travis" Jackson, Bradley Jackson, Adrian "Ace" Tucker, Simon "Junior" Percy, Jason Bradley, Francis Murphy, Traverse "Tiger" Murphy, and Travis "Mouse" Murphy; two sisters: Karen Jones and Beverly Jackson; a brother, Harlan Jackson; and many grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and several siblings.
