We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Weeks' Dryer Mortuary
Yolanda (DeeDee) Jackson-Bradberry went home to be with our Father God unexpectedly on July 25, 2021 at the age of 58.
She was preceded in death by her mother Shirley Jackson (Tacoma), sister Michelle Jackson (Los Angeles), and grandparents Frank and Bell Noble (Tacoma).
She was survived by her loving husband Jessie Bradberry and her five children, who she loved deeply and dearly - Anthony Jackson (Ursula), Shawntae Jackson, Ian Jones “Little Nick”, Marquise Jackson (Jerel), Chanelle Jones, and her dog Shorty (affectionately known as Shote Dog).
She was born to Charles E. Jackson and Shirley L. Jackson on March 12, 1963 in Los Angeles, CA. She was a blessing to her five siblings Gracie L. Fields, Frank L. Jackson (Kim), Cassandra E. Moore (Dwight), Rideaux Baldwin, and Michelle L. Jackson, and Jessie’s Daughter LeNora Bradberry. She was a proud grandmother of Anthony Jackson Jr (Little AJ), Ahlonna Jackson and TeJay (TJ) Parker.
She loved all of her nieces and nephews Tonia Ritter, Lakisha Veliz, Calvin Fields, Christopher Fields, Tenisha Sinclair, Frank Jackson Jr., Precious Jackson, Shakira Jackson, Charles Morgan, Natosha Jackson, James Cobb, Jamiea Jackson, Jamaul Jackson. She also adored her multitude of great nieces and nephews.
DeeDee excelled at basketball, track and field, and gymnastics. In fact, she held several records in girls’ gymnastics at Madison Elementary and was a super star in basketball at Stewart Junior High School in Tacoma, Washington. If you knew DeeDee, you know how much she loved her family and was happiest when she was surrounded by them. She had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh, play cards, go to casinos, and take long drives in cars with her sister Sandy and husband Jessie along with Little Nick. She had an old soul when it came to music and loved the classics (mainly in the R & B genre). There was never a dull moment when DeeDee was around, which made every moment special and mostly unforgettable.
She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, acquaintances, and associates.
We love you Yolanda Denise (DeeDee) Jackson-Bradberry.
