Ms. Bonnie Gayle Jackson was granted her place in heaven on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at the age of 63 years, 8 months, and 16 days after complications from pneumonia took her life. She departed this life at the Woodlands Health Care Center in Vernon Parish, Leesville, Louisiana. Bonnie was born in Altus, Oklahoma on July 8, 1954, to parents Foy Wynema and Leonard D. Terry who preceded their daughter in death. Bonnie married the love of her life, Richard Jimmy Jackson on March 21, 1971. They remained married until his passing on December 31, 1997, and with whom she is now reunited.
Being an army wife, Bonnie had the opportunity to serve her country in ways that only military families can understand. She was a dedicated patriot to the United States of America with her ability to create a loving, nurturing, and comforting home in locations all around the world. She raised a military man’s children to be strong, adaptive, courageous, and proud of where they came from. She taught her family to embrace adventure and explore life with curiosity, confidence, and that home can be anywhere, because you take it with you everywhere.
Left to cherish Bonnie’s memory are her daughter and son-in-law – Nemie & Troy Holman, in Santa Barbara, California; her son and daughter-in-law – Richard Jeremy & Jennifer Lee Jackson in Alamogordo, New Mexico; two granddaughters Kaylee Ann Michelle Korst and Cai Lauren Howe; three grandsons Christopher Boone Kincaide King, Aiden Levi Douglas King, and Lucian William Cole King; and great-grandson Declan Knox Korst. She is also survived by her sister and brother-in-law Lila Elaine & Tom Karren; brother and sister-in-law Rickey Lynn & Glenda Terry and youngest brother Leonard Duane Terry.
