Jackson, Jean 'Clare'

Clare Jackson passed away peacefully at Errinrung Nursing Home in Thornbury on Thursday, January 28, 2021 in her 82nd year.

She was born and raised in St. Mary’s Parish in Jamaica in a close knit community. Clare was predeceased by her husband Ralph Bickerton in 2009.

She is survived by her sister Peggy Jackson of Toronto and was predeceased by her sister Totlyn Jackson, the first ‘Lady of Jamaican Jazz’.

Clare received several scholarships for academic achievements and attended Buxton College in Kingston, Jamaica. She travelled to England and then came to Canada where she met her husband Ralph Bickerton.  She owned and operated a successful business in Collingwood called Closets and Things.  She offered job training placement for local citizens.  Clare enjoyed music, gardening and prized her cook book collection.

Sincere thanks and words of appreciation are extended to Clare’s dear friends Ralph Fisher of Clarksburg, Carolyn and Sylvia Wilson of Collingwood, and to the staff at Errinrung Nursing Home.
