Obituary Please share a memory of Mae to include in a keepsake book for family and friends. View Tribute Book Mae Jackson: A Portrait Of Love It was New Year’s Eve of the year 1954. While some were preparing to ring in the New Year in this festive Friday night, Andrew and Queenell Robins were awaiting the birth of their bouncing baby girl who was named Mae Frances Robins. She came into the world with a bang, and would blaze a trail of life, laughter, and love for each person that she met to experience. Never meeting a stranger, loving people just as they were. Mae was a very lively and beautiful person. She grew up in St. Louis, MO along with her nine siblings in a loving home. There was always food, music, and laughter as she and her family lived life and remained close knit as they grew up. Mae was educated in the St. Louis Public School system, and was a graduate of Soldan High School, Class of 1973. She was dubbed “Best Afro” and enjoyed singing and competing in talent shows in the singing group, Kenyatta, along with her sisters. Mae enjoyed a career as part of the clerical staff for the Federal Records Center in St. Louis, MO. She would be most known for, and very proud of, her tenure as Head of Banquets at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel located in Clayton, MO. She really loved her career in hospitality, and it showed in her professional experiences, as well with her family, as she always opened her door to family, friends, and even strangers who may have needed someone to talk to, a hot meal, or just a safe place to sleep for the night when life was low. This beautiful soul was blessed to be one of the main characters in the most intriguing love story to date. Spanning over 40 years, Mae spent her life with her soulmate, “Chauncey”, as she affectionately called him, and whom we would get to know and love as Uncle Myron Jackson. She was his “Sweet Thang”, and they started a loving family between Kansas City and St. Louis. Of this beautiful bond of love and commitment were reared three beautiful children, Jamour, Omari, and Ayana. One would think that they had more than three children as life would bless them with precious Godchildren, God-Grandchildren, and a host of Chosen Family Members. Mae was very vibrant and full of life. Known for her famous collection of colorful neck scarves and handkerchiefs. She loved to dress nicely and look good. She was never caught off guard. Having to have had her bath completed, clothes ironed, hair done, and lipstick applied before going ANYWHERE. You could not just arrive to her doorstep and take her somewhere. She had to get ready and be ready first. Being a very whimsical person, she often danced to the beat of her own drum. One humorous, but annual, occurrence always took place in her home. Her children, nieces and nephews would always know that the beginning of the school year had arrived by hearing Mae play Christmas tunes every Labor Day Weekend. While organizing holiday decorations and singing, “This Christmas”, the children knew to get their clothes ready for school. Mae showed love and was loved by many. Her life is a testament of the beauty of love and commitment. Many couples just tolerate one another, and go through the motions of being married, but the love between Mae and her husband Myron, was unparalleled. Her husband loved her unconditionally. His level of care and attention to detail in caring for her was second to none. A bond like this that once began on two blank canvases, joined together by God, and now adorned with the colors of love, an lived out by the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, is now a completed masterpiece, and is now on display in heaven with the Master Artist, Jesus Christ.
