Cynthia Ann (Carter) Jackson, aged 60, of LaFayette, Georgia, peacefully passed away on Thursday, November 9, 2023, surrounded by her loving family, after bravely battling breast cancer for 16 years. She was born on October 3, 1963, in Uhrichsville, Ohio, and was the daughter of Barbara Carter, who passed away in 2012, and Leslie Carter, who left us in 1985.
Cynthia proudly graduated from Claymont High School in 1981, where she played a vital role as the center for the girls' basketball State Championship team. She, along with her team, was inducted into the Tuscarawas County Hall of Fame in 2022, a memory she cherished dearly. Cynthia went on to earn her Masters in Business Administration from Malone University.
A woman of unwavering faith, Cynthia attended her childhood church, St. John Worship & Praise Community Church in Uhrichsville, Ohio. She served as the Worship and Praise Gospel choir director for many years, intermittently leading the choir when she was in the area.
Cynthia dedicated over 20 years of her professional life to Human Resources and most recently at Shaw Industries in Dalton, Georgia, where she used her expertise to enhance the employee experience throughout the organization. She brought knowledge, joy, and light to every interaction with her colleagues.
She is survived by her loving husband of 39 years, Pastor Archie E. Jackson of Lafayette, Georgia, her daughters Chentelle (Chris) Lane, Cheena Jackson, Chealyn (Ashley) Jackson, and Tyera Jackson, as well as her siblings Leslie (JoAnn) Carter, Brian Carter, Violet (Albert) Harris, and Jay (Lori Clauser) Carter.
Cynthia's eight grandchildren held a special place in her heart and soul: Dre’Shaun Jackson, Ava Garner, Alana Garner, Aziah Lane, Mayze Lane, Cruze Lane, Storm Jackson, and Jayde Jackson. She was a beloved aunt to many nieces and nephews, who considered her a second mother in so many ways. She took immense pride in each and every one of them.
Additionally, she is survived by her mother-in-law, Carolyn Jackson, a cherished niece, Octavia Jackson, a brother-in-law, Nick Jackson, and sister-in-law, Anita (Rick) Joseph along with other beloved extended family members.
A homegoing service in Cynthia's honor will take place at St. John Worship & Praise Community Church, 1030 Cook Street, Uhrichsville, Ohio, on Thursday, November 16th at 11 a.m. with burial immediately following at Union Cemetery in Uhrichsville, Ohio. On Wednesday, November 15, 2023, Family and friends are invited to pay their respects from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the church and one hour prior to the service on Thursday. Following the committal, a repast will be held in the church fellowship hall.
The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to Shaw Industries and Hospice of Chattanooga for their loving care and unwavering support during Cynthia's illness.
