Emma Jackson Westbrook


Niagara Gazette

NIAGARA FALLS —

Emma Jackson Westbrook was born on May 4, 1941 in Livingston, AL to the late George and Louise (Tansley) Jackson. She confessed to Christ at an early age. Emma moved to Niagara Falls in 1960, where she met and married Hubbert Westbrook.
Emma loved serving the Lord and her selflessness shined as she took pride in caring for others. She enjoyed cooking, dancing, music and games. She was employed at St. Mary's Manor before venturing on to St. Mary's Hospital, before retiring after 42 years of dedicated service.
Her memory will be forever cherished by her husband of 53 years, Hubbert Westbrook; two loving children, Audrey Denise of Niagara Falls and Hubbert Westbrook, Jr. of Edgewater, FL; three grandchildren, Jeffrey L. Crockett II of Niagara Falls, Shaundell and Alexis of Charlotte, NC; one Godchild, Bishayla Bradley of Niagara Falls; three sisters, Betty Randall and Geraldine Jackson of Bessemer, AL and Josephine (late Bill) Matthews of Niagara Falls; one brother, James (Essie) Jackson of Niagara Falls. Emma was predeceased by one sister, Melvina Mosley; three brothers, Henry (Shorty), Roosevelt and Dan (BOP) Jackson. She has a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends; as well as her very special friends, Irene Love, Doris Ezell, Eloise (Bay) Carter and Joretha Elder.
Visitation on Thursday at 11 AM at the Bethany Baptist Church, Forest Ave. at 20th Street. Funeral to follow at Noon. Burial at the convenience of the family. Arrangements by WILLIAMSON FUNERAL HOME, 635 Main St., Niagara Falls, NY.
