Toni Cole Jackson

September 29, 1942 - March 13, 2014

She was born in Salt Lake City, UT, to Don and Betty Fexer. Toni grew up in the San Fernando Valley and was a true Valley Girl before Valley Girls were invented. She attended Van Nuys High School and Valley College. Although she had several jobs throughout her life, her proudest accomplishment was raising her three children. She moved to Eugene in 1989 to be close to her parents and moved to Roseburg on Valentine’s Day in 1992 after she met her true love, Craig Jackson. Real love stories never have endings.

She is preceded in death by her mother and father. Toni is survived by her husband, Craig Jackson; sons, Rick Cole, James Jackson and Niles Jackson; daughters, Kristen Burks, Kelly Jones, Laurel Jackson; sister, Leslie Pernak; brother, Don Fexer and her grandchildren.

All those who cared about her are invited to join the family for her wake at 5:30 p.m. at Melrose Winery on Thursday, March 20, 2014. Light hors d’oeuvres will be served.

In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations to be made in Toni’s name to the Treva Hoffman Foundation www.thethf.com.
