Stella Jackson, born on January 9, 1927, passed away on Tuesday, November 21, 2023, at the age of 96 at the Lake Bonavista Seniors facility in Calgary, AB. She was born to parents Jenny and Nicholas Baszuck in Flaxcombe, Saskatchewan. She was raised in Beynon, Alberta where her dad worked as a section foreman for the railway. Stella married Gordon Jackson on October 3, 1943, and moved to the family farm. Together they raised four children, James, Robert, Terry and Darlene. She was involved with the Lutheran Church council in Dalum and active with the Beynon Friendship Club. Stella worked the farm with Gordon and ran the machinery at harvest time as well as doing the cooking and cleaning required to keep the family going. Stella loved her family and friends. She enjoyed dancing, visiting, crocheting, designing Ukrainian Easter eggs and entertaining. She cared deeply for all the neighbors and was there to help out wherever she could.

Stella is predeceased by her husband, Gordon of 59 years; son, James Jackson; and sisters, Anne Walker and Margaret Smith. Stella had a strong faith in God and throughout her life her actions taught us how to love, be kind, compassionate and most of all forgiving. She will be greatly missed.
