Goldsboro-Nellie Howell Jackson, 86, of Goldsboro, peacefully passed away on Sunday, July 30, 2017 while surrounded by her family.

Nellie was a lady of great inner strength who thrived on being independent. She cherished her family and nothing was more important than their happiness and well being. One with a giving and caring heart, Nellie often placed the needs of others ahead of her own. Nellie enjoyed shopping. Nothing was better than a trip to Belks or Sams Club. She loved trips to Raleigh and dining at her favorite restaurant, Bahama Breeze. Nellie retired from Made-Rite Bakery and during her retirement years worked as a home caregiver. Her memory shines bright in the hearts of her family.
