Jackson, Charline Harris (Booth)

Charline Harris Booth Jackson, of near Dardanelle, in Yell County, Ark., died on May 16, 2007, at Presbyterian Village, Little Rock, Ark. where she had lived under the care of her family, Gale Stewart and Walter Nunn, Norman and Nancy Hall and Jane Stewart Watkins for the last four years. Mrs. Jackson was born January 27, 1908, the descendant of a pioneer family of cultural Presbyterians who settled at White Church near Wattensas Bayou, Prairie County, in the 1840s. She was the daughter of Emma Isom Harris Booth of Oxford, Miss. and John Warner Booth of Des Arc and graduated from Des Arc High School in 1926. She was the widow of Norborn Spencer Jackson, the son of a distinguished family of pioneer university-trained M.D.s, who settled in Yell and Garland counties and produced five generations of physicians, who dedicated their lives to improving health care for women. Mr. Jackson was a merchant and managed his father's business interests. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson were predeceased by an infant son, who died as a result of her eclampsia during pregnancy. Mrs. Jackson was an educator who taught in Des Arc, Ola and Carden Bottom, where she served as principal. She attended Arkansas College in Batesville and studied elocution, hoping to follow in the footsteps of her great-aunt, Sarah McGhee Isom of Oxford, Miss., who lectured all over the world and was the first woman professor at the University of Mississippi, a school that Miss Isom's father founded. The Great Depression interrupted Mrs. Jackson's studies, but she became the second licensed speech therapist in the State of Arkansas and a Certified Lifetime Member of the American Speech Language and Hearing Association, working in the Yell and Pope County Schools. After her retirement she wrote: "Most of the children were very anxious to improve their speech patterns. Never shall I forget the third grade boy who had a minor defect that was bad enough for his classmates to notice and tease him about. This was causing him to have personality problems. He cooperated with me in his therapy and was very much improved at the end of the first year. The next year when I returned to his school, he ran to meet me and said, 'Mrs. Jackson, I talk all right now and the boys don't make fun of me anymore.' It was thrilling for me to hear him say that ... Yes, it made me happy every time a child's speech improved. When corrected, I knew it would make him a happier person, better equipped to meet his responsibilities." Mrs. Jackson was a woman of beauty, style, charm and culture. She was an avid gardener and loved to entertain, working for weeks to get ready for visitors so that entertainment seemed effortless. She was loved by all who knew her and she was unfailingly polite and pleasant even during her final illness. Charm, preparation and hard work were her weapons of choice in dealing with all adversity. She was a member of the Dardanelle Presbyterian Church, Delta Kappa Gamma Society and had been a member of the Yell County Regional Library Board and the Daughters of the American Revolution, General William Lewis Chapter. When asked by a niece if she had ever exercised, she replied: "No. I've never taken much exercise." That notion was corrected by her brotherin-law, who said. "Exercise! She went at life in a dead run." Mrs. Jackson lived in the historic Jackson homeplace from 1947 until she moved to Presbyterian Village. She was able to stay there until she was 94 because of her many faithful friends.

She is survived by her brothers-in-law, Leslie Grady of Dardanelle and his wife, Annie Laura Jaggers-Grady, Carl Ownbey of Fayetteville; nieces and nephews, Gale Stewart, Jane Stewart Watkins, Norman and Nancy Hall, Mary Charline Wilkins, Reverend Carl A. Ownbey, Jr., Carol Louise Mitchell, John W. B ooth III, Leslie Grady Jr., Susan Schubert, Janelle Jackson Young, Carol Jane Jackson Gordon, Haines Gaydon Jackson, M.D., Mauria Jackson Aspell and Walter Norborn Jackson.

A Memorial Service will be held at Presbyterian Village, third floor at 10 a.m., Friday, May 18, 2007. Funeral services at the Dardanelle Presbyterian Church will be announced at a later date. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to Presbyterian Village, 510 Brookside Drive, Little Rock, AR 72205 for use in its wing for treatment of Alzheimer's patients. Cremation arrangements are by Ruebel Funeral Home of Little Rock.
