Maggie Jarrett was born in 1921 the only child of Johnnie & Frank Tigg. Maggie married Willie Jarrett on December 21, 1940. To this union was born their beloved son, Johnnie Frank Jarrett. Maggie came in contact with Jehovah's Witnesses and studied the Truth with Brother and Sister Mizelle, whom she grew to love and cherish for the rest of her life. She dedicated her life to Jehovah and got baptized on December 13, 1958. To her delight three years later, both her mother and son joined her in serving Jehovah. This made her the catalyst for starting a wonderful spiritual heritage and legacy of 5 generations of family members serving Jehovah God. She loved her God and helping others learn about her Heavenly Father, all the way to the end. She was regular in the Christian Ministry, often choosing a few months of the year to devote 60 hours that month telling others about the Bible truths she held dear. She did so until her health started failing her. As a hospitable woman with a spunky personality, she was affectionately known as Mom/Gram/Grannie by many that knew and loved her. She enjoyed cooking, dancing, entertaining and playing cards with friends. She had a great knack for growing many varieties of flowers and plants. She loved watching Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and Westerns. On Friday, October 9th she laid down for a short nap. Sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning, she peacefully entered a deeper sleep, just days from turning 99. She lived a long and fulfilling life in service to Jehovah God. Maggie was loved and cherished by so many family and spiritual brothers and sisters. She leaves to cherish her memory, her beloved son John (Toni); 4 grandchildren, Trycennia (Christopher) Dean-Motley, Kellie, Adam (Tania) and Amy (Eric); 8 great-grandchildren, Sara (David) Russell, Jada Jarrett, Moné (Mateó) Colón, Elijah Rosa, Julianna Spicer, Andrew Spicer, Shania Dean-Motley and Isabella Jarrett; Spiritual daughters Mary (Michael) Crump and JoAnn (Alan) Bowles; Spiritual son Ken Corbusier; Spiritual grandson Kevin (LaDorcia) Oliver; along with many special friends and a large host of spiritual family. We want to give a special thank you to her Caregivers, Ann and Bernice, as well as the Nurturing Care Group Home for their consistent and wonderful loving care of our cherished *MOM*. The family would like to express our heartfelt appreciation for all the loving attention you dear friends have displayed to us. Your cards, concern, emails, flowers, meals, prayers and text messages are greatly appreciated at this very difficult time. Each of you have proven to be "true friends… born for times of distress." (Prov. 17:17) We appreciate your continued prayers during this SHORT separation from our dear Mom. We eagerly anticipate hearing Jesus say: "Maggie, it's time to wake up. Your family has planned a big party for you." So let's do all we can to make it to the New World in order to welcome her back.
