Obituary for Yvette S. Jackson
Obituary for Yvette S. Jackson
YVETTE S. JACKSON, who was determined to make her way in the world as a successful lawyer and self-supporting feminist and who changed her goal to have babies, died at home on the morning of November 15, 2009. She was 92. She was satisfied that her life had been fulfilled and so slipped off to sleep from which she did not awaken. She had no pain. Yvette was born at home in New Orleans to Moris and Shava Sherman. She attended Newcomb College and in 1939 graduated from Tulane Law School where she made Law Review. She worked for a year to codify a group of laws for the state legislature in Baton Rouge. She practiced law in the offices of Phelps Dunbar Marks and Claverie. It was there she realized that she was a good lawyer and would be successful, but more than that, she “wanted babies.” In December 1942 she met Lt. Daniel Jackson who fit nicely with her new goal and this wartime romance took fire. Seven weeks later they were married. She accompanied Dan to Texarkana and when he was shipped to the South Pacific, she returned to New Orleans to live with her parents to await the birth of Richard. When Dan returned from the service, they moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where second son Steven was born. The family settled in Houston where Robert was born, completing Yvette's objective. In Houston she became active in the community. She plunged into school board politics and never missed an opportunity to speak up in support of public schools. She was secretary of the local chapter of the American Jewish Committee. She was president of the Elva Wright Auxiliary of the Houston Tuberculosis Hospital. When she learned that baby's bottles were washed in the same tub as patients' bed sheets, she spearheaded a raffle (though it was illegal) to raise money to buy a washing machine. Mayor Fred Hofheinz supported her and named the Auxiliary his favorite charity--How could he resist her? She dispensed advice, some asked for, some not. She urged her sons to dress like Dad. Being a Southern belle, she minded her manners and her dress, but was not above sticking out her tongue or flicking a finger when the occasion demanded. She was a lifelong Democrat and could not understand anyone who was not. She cheered at Little League practices and games whether the boys played or hugged the bench. She taught children and grandchildren to spit from high places and to yell when going through tunnels. She designed and made jewelry. She coauthored a book, “You Ain't Lived `Til You Grow Old.” Surviving her and deeply missing her are her husband Dan and his sister Evelyn Sherman; sons Richard and wife Sandy, Steven and wife Sheila, and Robert and wife Alicia; daughters-in-law Joan, Charlene and Abigail; grandchildren Keith and wife Kathy, Laura, Tracey and husband Eddie, Emily, Josh, and Bryan; greatgrandchildren Rachael, Cameron, Janessa, Jackson, and Shayley; and numerous nieces and nephews. The family deeply appreciates the loving care given to Yvette by Maria (Lucy) Hernandez, Flora Sanchez, and Maira Cantu. Donations in her memory may be made to the Houston Area Women's Center or Seven Acres Senior Care Services.
