Jessie grew up in the Bowling Green area.  She lived in Ashley for a short period after she married and lived most of her adult life in Eolia.   She was a faithful member of the Eolia Baptist Church.  Jessie will be remembered for her cooking; especially her rolls, and was known throughout the area for delivering meals to the elderly citizens in Eolia.  She was on the Pike County Nurses Education Fund board, as well as a member of the Aeolian GFWC.  She was always willing to help people in need, regardless of who they were, seeing only the good in people.  Jessie and Willard operated the Magee fur and root business in Eolia, which enabled them to travel to other parts of the world.   Above all, Jessie loved her Lord Jesus Christ, family, and her community.
Memorials may be made to the Pike County Nursing Education Fund, Edgewood Cemetery, Eolia Baptist Church or the Clopton Alumni Association.
