U.S Army Lt. Rose Jackson, was one of around 20 nurses that came onshore in France, on June 10th, 1944 – just four days after the D-Day invasion which sent the Nazis into retreat as the Allied forces liberated France.  She served from 1942 – 1946 as a nurse in the European Theater.  In all, she served in six campaigns in Europe

Lt. Jackson was a native of Kansas.  She met her husband in a field hospital; and, after the war they married and she became a resident of Chattooga County, where the pair owned and operated Jackson’s General Store in Lyerly for many years. 

Mrs. Jackson was a member of Lyerly United Methodist Church, where she attended faithfully until the COVID-19 pandemic.  She was 104.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 29th, at 11:00am from the J. D. Hill Memorial Chapel of Earle Rainwater Funeral Home – visitation will be one hour prior to the service with interment to follow in Lyerly Cemetery.
