Obituary for Georgia "Hazel" Davis Jackson

Hazel Jackson, age 102, of Wilmington, passed away Thursday, July 20, 2017. A celebration of Hazel’s life was held on Thursday, July 27, 2017 at Kendall Chapel AME Church. Burial followed in Dark Branch Cemetery.

Georgia Hazel (Davis) Jackson, daughter of the late Henry O. Davis and Eliza (Betts) Davis was born on September 1, 1914 in Southport, North Carolina. She was preceded in death by her siblings, Mary (Davis) Rose, Jesse Lee Davis, Robert Thomas Davis, Richard Henry Davis, and Harlee King. She was raised and educated in Southport, North Carolina and remained there until she moved to New York City with her husband Isaac Jackson in 1937.

While in New York City, Hazel worked for Sheraton Hotel Corporation, Sacks Fifth Avenue Department Store and Holiday Inn Hotels. She joined the Church of the Master Presbyterian Church located on 122nd Street and Morningside Avenue in Harlem, New York. She enjoyed traveling to many places like Jamaica and other islands. Hazel loved being in New York and spent many happy years there.

Hazel was blessed to be a second mother to four wonderful children, David Ehrlich, Darren, Denise and Derrick Davis. She spent many days nurturing and providing nuggets of wisdom to them.

After retirement, Hazel returned to the Wilmington area to enjoy the warm winds and gentle rains with family and friends. While living in Winnabow, North Carolina, she attended Kendall Chapel A.M.E. Church. She later moved to Wilmington and united with The Chestnut Street Presbyterian Church under the pastorate of Rev. Baskerville. Hazel later joined the Temple Rock Tabernacle Holiness Church in Wilmington, North Carolina under the pastorate of Bishop James Bowman. She remained a member until her transition.

Hazel’s faith was strong and she trusted in the Lord with her whole heart. Her favorite scripture was Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
She leaves to cherish her life, her love and her legacy, a very special nephew, Rev. Jesse L. Davis; and several nieces, nephews, great and great- great nieces and nephews, and family friends.
