CARTHAGE, NY ~ Nancy A. (Lyndaker) Jackson, 75, of Carthage, NY, died unexpectedly on March 22, 2021 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse following a medical procedure.
Nancy was born on April 11, 1945 in Lowville, NY, the youngest child of the late Peter and Genevieve (Monnat) Lyndaker. She graduated from Beaver River Central School, after first attending Fr. Leo Memorial School in Croghan.
As a young girl, she enjoyed spending time outside with her father, tending to the many tasks at the family homestead. Nancy worked for a time as a dental assistant with Dr. Schleider and then for Dr. Wilsby.
On August 31st, 1963, she married Leonard Jackson at St. Stephen’s Church in Croghan. During their years together, they enjoyed the friendship of so many, who joined them at their camp on Lake Bonaparte for boating, snowmobiling, cardplaying and good times. After the birth of her two children, Nancy operated a daycare out of her home, assisting with the growth of many children over the years, including her own grandchildren.
Nancy loved to travel, and especially loved the annual trips with her sisters. She also enjoyed playing cards, and treasure hunting at garage sales and auctions. Family gatherings were such a highlight to her. The annual family reunions and Christmas parties in Croghan were something she looked so forward to. Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren.
