Anne Jackson

Anne Jackson, 90, passed on Wednesday, Aug. 26, in Pagosa Springs: the town and Colorado Rocky Mountains she loved so much. Anne’s spirit will continue the journey set for her.

Anne was born in Fort Worth, Texas, to Ray and Mildred McCleskey of Handley, Texas, a banker and housewife. As a young woman, she met, married and began a family with Fort Worth attorney Alfred J. Jackson Jr.

Anne is survived by her sons, Keith, of Fort Worth; Chris, of Fort Lauderdale; extended family and very many friends.

Anne held a master’s degree and her lifelong passion was working as an interior designer, fashion model and school teacher. She enjoyed travels to Europe, Canada, Cayman Islands, Mexico, Fiji and Brazil, along with hiking and camping around the USA alongside her dachshund, Raja.

Anne had a deep love and compassion for all living things in our natural world.

Her many active interests were snow skiing, tennis and exploring nature underwater as a certified scuba diver.

Anne, as a deeply spiritual being, wished for cremation upon her passing and ashes spread amongst the Rocky Mountain flowers of an alpine lake in Colorado.
