Safari Lorena Jackson, 7 months old, of Zanesville, Ohio, went to be in the care of The Lord, Monday, March 1, 2021. Safari was born August 20, 2020 to her loving parents, Shaylanna Hill and Ryan Jackson. Safari was greeted in paradise, by her great-great grandmother, Lorena Norris; her aunt, Keirstynn Kennedy; and her great-grandparents, Henry and Geraldine Jackson as well as James and Lizzie Penny.
In addition to her parents, Safari leaves to cherish her memory her beloved big sister, Aria Jackson; her grandparents, Larry and Mildred Jackson, Alicia Hill and Gene Dickinson; aunts and uncles, Jerry Norman, Kaylieanna Dickinson, Mildred "Missy" (Tom) Hakes, Larry (Nicole) Jackson II, and Brian (Yari) Jackson; several cousins; and a host of others who loved her.
Safari was the epitome of a child of God. She was full of love and happiness, always smiling and laughing. She had the biggest smile. Safari loved tots, her swing and most of all, her big sister. She enjoyed tummy time and play time with Aria. Safari was hitting milestones each day. She had been teething and even had her first tooth. Safari was beginning to roll over on her own and she had started to enjoy baby food. She is very loved by her parents, and all those who had the pleasure of knowing her. Though her family finds comfort in knowing she is in God's hands, she will be deeply missed.
