Tanya Christa Jackson, 60, of Coatesville, PA, was called home on Sunday, December 17, 2023.
Born in Coatesville, PA , she was the daughter of Geraldine D. Jackson and the late James Bell Jackson. Tanya was affectionately known as "Sissy" by her family and friends.
Tanya attended schools in the Coatesville Area School District and graduated from Coatesville Area Senior High School in 1981. She was a certified CNA and worked as a Supervisor at Handy Crafters.
One of Tanya's greatest passions was cooking seafood, and she had a special love for crabs. Her culinary skills were matched only by her giving heart, and she would always make sure that everyone around her was well-fed and happy. But Tanya's generosity extended beyond her love of cooking, as she would give you her last and share food with those in need.
Her unwavering commitment to helping others was evident in the way she loved to feed the needy, always making sure that those who were hungry had a warm meal to eat.
In addition to her kind and loving nature, Tanya was a true friend to many. Her beautiful smile and warm presence could light up a room, and she always had a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on. She enjoyed listening to old-school music and was outgoing, making friends wherever she went.
She will be sorrowfully missed by her family including her son, Taneil Martice Jackson, Sr.; mother, Geraldine D. Jackson; sister, Geraldette " Paddie" Matthews; brother, Terrence L Jackson, Sr.; grandchildren: Ty-Jere Sellers, Samere Jackson, Taneil M Jackson, Jr., Martice Allen, Tristan Jackson, C’cret Woodward-Jackson, Jaylen Jackson, Desean Jackson, Azeri Jackson, Cayan Woodward-Jackson and Asav Jackson; great-grandchildren, Khami Yah Lee, Kailani Pinder; God-daughters, Dana Jackson, Chanelle Walker, Taja Walker; aunt, Mary Baylis, Christa “Ell” Norment; uncle, Carl Jones, Sr.; companion, Ronald Marshall and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
In addition to her family, she was preceded in death by a grandson, Meikki Jackson, and brother-in-law Charles Matthews.
Tanya was a kind and generous soul who touched the hearts of everyone she met. Her legacy will live on through the memories she has left with her loved ones, and she will be deeply missed.
