Obituary

Dosia Imo Jackson joined her husband in heaven on March 2, 2020. Her funeral service will begin at 10:30 a.m. Monday, March 9, 2020 at the Church of Christ in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Interment will follow at Oak Grove Cemetery in Ft. Cobb, Oklahoma. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is handling arrangements.

Dosia was born the oldest of 3 children on the family farm south of Carnegie to Lawrence and Imo McCullough on July 24, 1932. She graduated as valedictorian from Broxton High School in 1951. On June 2, 1951, she married the love of her life, Paul Jackson Jr., and together they shared the next 55 years. They moved to Apache to live in a 3-room house, acquired on borrowed money. She lived there until 2010 and then moved to Stillwater to live with her children Mary Jo and Jim Self.

Dosia was a true partner with husband Paul as farmers/ranchers in Jackson Seed Farms from 1959-2007. Both were known for their work ethic, raising wheat and cattle primarily. Paul and Dosia raised 4 children; Paula, Jennifer, Mary Jo and Robert. In addition, they fostered two children (Barbara Phillips and Bill Baker) and welcomed countless others from Tipton Childrens’ Home into their home over the years.

As a child, she dreamed of being a fashion designer and accomplished that, just not in the way she thought. She designed three wedding dresses for her daughters and made all the clothes for her children until they became adults. She taught the girls to sew and cook and served as their 4-H leader, writing speeches and food demonstrations for competitions.

She and Paul faithfully served as longtime members of the Apache Church of Christ. She enjoyed teaching all ages of Bible classes. For every class, she studied and prepared visual aids to enhance the stories for the children.

During their years in Apache, Dosia was active on numerous boards and committees including the Apache Library Board, the Chamber of Commerce and the Apache Fair Board. She was a 50+ year member of the Boone Extension Homemakers Club. She served as the state president of the Oklahoma Extension Homemakers. Dosia credited the Extension Homemakers with teaching her how to care better for her family.
Dosia was always the first to volunteer and willing to lend a hand to anyone in need whether that meant a personal visit or a handwritten, heartfelt card. She was known for her cinnamon rolls, peanut brittle and apple pie and enjoyed sharing produce from her garden with others. She prepared numerous meals for people who were ill and grieving. She also used her sewing ability and made countless quilts, clothes and baby blankets. Dosia loved flowers, butterflies and birds. Dosia was a faithful Christian, loved her family deeply and lived a long life of service.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Jackson Jr.; her parents; Lawrence and Imo McCullough; and two great grandsons, Clayton Saucier and Carter Dobbs.

She is survived by her four children, Paula and Tom Lewis of Stillwater, Jennifer and Randy Gray of Edmond, Mary Jo and Jim Self of Stillwater and Robert Jackson of Anadarko. Her 12 grandchildren include Amanda and Bobby Saucier, Aaron and Mandy Lewis, Andrea and Josh Evans; Erik and Kristen Gray, Jenny and Alex Jones; Marissa Crawford and Stephen Schultz, Ashley and Elliott Dobbs, Aaron and Kristi Self, Amy and Adam Housley, Courtney and Josh Hairgrove; Natasha Fillmore, Nathan and Tania Jackson. She had 23 great grandchildren, Daegan, Caleb, and Landon Saucier; Reed, Boone, and Hayes Lewis; Erica and Korben Evans; Birkley, Kyiah, and Harlan Gray; August and Gray Jones; Mason and Madelyn Dobbs; Elisabeth, Molly, and Samantha Housley; Emma Self; Jacob, William, and Gracie Hairgrove; Memphis Fillmore. She is also survived by her brother Tony and wife Della McCullough of Ft. Cobb, sister, Martha and husband James Branum of Newcastle and a foster sister, Sue Trahan of Cement, plus several cousins, nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the loving care of Karman Legacy Hospice, Dr. Terry Brown, Dr. John Wedlake, and the staff at Brookdale. The family particularly wants to thank these special caregivers: Jordan Singleton Bradford, Alison Spaulding Masri, Haley Hedges Mallon and Courtney Fryar.

In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial contributions be sent to two organizations that were dear to Dosia’s heart; The Apache Library, PO Box 593 Apache, OK, 73006, and Camp Lu-Jo KISMIF, P.O. BOx 322, Lawton, 73502.

Dear Jennifer, Paula, Mary Jo, and Robert,
We were sorry to hear that your precious mother has passed. I have such fond memories of her as a Sunday School teacher, our 4-H Leader, an involved parent of our class, and sweet mother to all of you.
I hope you will all find comfort in your precious memories with her and knowing that she is with your beloved dad once again.
Please remember, “A mother’s love knows no boundaries, not even the grave”.
We will keep you in our prayers,
Mary Jo and Gene Lee

On June 2, 1951, Dosia married my Brother, Paul Jr. Jackson, and became part of our family circle. We shared years of Sunday dinners, and Holidays. We all looked forward to her delicious homemade cinnamon rolls and peanut brittle. Dosia was a faithful Christian wife to my Brother. Dosia had unlimited talents, cooking, sewing, flowers, gardening, and so much more. Dosia was always kind to me, as her Sister in Law. She honored me by requesting my help to care for my Brother, during his final days. This gave me more precious time to be with my Brother. Also, for more bonding time with Dosia, as we spent days & nights together, traveling back & forth to OKC. for Doctors apps., taking turns setting up to minister to his needs. I know Dosia is now safe in the arms of Jesus and her body is free from her pain and suffering. God be with all her family. I extend my love & sympathy to all her family and mine. Dorothy Jackson Millwee.
