Enola (Washington) Jackmon, age 79 of Maplewood, passed away on April 29, 2021. Enola Dollie Frances Washington was the first born to Rev. John & Gertrude Washington on June 6th, 1941 in Jacksonville, Il, and was named after all of her living grandmothers. She was raised in Slater, MO for 16 years, where she met her ex-husband, Wallace Jackmon Sr. and was married for 23 years. They resided in North Carolina, Hawaii, Los Angeles, Texas, Alaska, Northern California, Northern Minnesota and Missouri. There were eight children born during that marriage: Wallace Jackmon Jr, Uilani Enola, Lyndon Baines, Shawn Christopher, DeVonna G., Anthony Oliver, Csonya Rochelle and Yevonne Lavelle. Her life was her children and her job of driving bus was an accomplishment she was very proud of. She drove the transit in Sioux Falls, SD where she was a union steward and trained drivers for 6 years. She then moved to Minneapolis where she drove with Metro Transit for 13 years, retired, and went back to Sioux Falls where she drove for one more year. At the persistence of her friends at her senior complex, she began attending Redeemer Baptist Church.
Enola is preceded in death by her parents, John and Gertrude; and sons, Shawn Christopher and Lyndon Baines. She leaves two sons and four daughters; Dr. Wallace Jackmon Jr., Anthony Oliver, Uilani Enola, DeVonna G., Csonya Rochelle and Yevonne Lavelle; 9 grandchildren, Domia, Kayla, Derek, Damien, Dawnisha, Dominic, Miles, Hope and Hannah; and great granddaughter, Daisiah; brother, Jon Lester Washington of Kansas City, Mo; many other relatives and good friends.
