June Jackson Obituary

June AnnaLee McCorkle Jackson was born on May 13, 1944, in Washington D.C. to the late George D. McCorkle and Mamie E. McCorkle. She was the youngest child of seven.

In addition to her parents, June was preceded in death by three brothers Alvin, Enoch (Griff), Harry (Happy), Leonard and two sisters, Mamie, and Ethel. Nephew, Manton Chapman (Peewee).

June received her education in the Prince George’s County Public School system; namely, Lakeland Elementary, Lakeland Junior High and graduated from High Point High School, in Beltsville, Maryland. She attended Queens Chapel United Methodist Church in Beltsville, Maryland for Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and other youth activities. She attended First Baptist Church for Sunday services and youth activities. June eventually joined First Baptist Church at age 15 and became pianist for the Young People’s Choir—a position she held until her marriage to Theordore Jackson. June was married to Theordore “Ted” Jackson and from this union, two sons were born: Kevin J. and Keith T. Jackson. Suddenly on July 25, 1986, after a brief illness Ted departed this life at Prince George’s Hospital, in Cheverly, Maryland.

After graduating from High Point High School, June began her federal career with the United States Department of Treasury. After the birth of both children, she became a homemaker for three years. She continued her career with the federal government in 1970. June was blessed to retire in December 2000, ending her career with the Department of Health and Human Services, Center for Disease Control and Prevention. June was a member of First Baptist Church of College Park and served faithfully. She served as Co-Chairperson and Chairperson for the Annual Women’s Day programs. Under the leadership of Pastor Stephen L. Wright, Sr. she served as President of the Women’s Ministry for six years. She sang with the Women’s Day Choir and the Volunteer Choir for many years. She was a member of the adult Sunday School class. She also enjoyed the role of greeting incoming members and visitors. She had a smile for everyone. June was so thankful for Sister Linda Wright, First Lady of First Baptist Church, who re-introduced her to crocheting. She made Afghan blankets for Sister Wright’s projects, each family member, friends, and dozens more.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her beloved sons Keith and Kevin. Grandchildren David, Christopher, Crystal, Julian, and Barbara. Great-grandchildren, Jayla, Christopher Jr., and Romero; niece Joanne, grandnieces, and nephews. Those who will also cherish her memory include her long time and close friends, Ellon Bishop, Sheila Michel, Leola Simmons, Cynthia Link, Wendy Pritchett as well as her loving First Baptist Church Family.
