Billie Colleen Ayers Jackson “Jac” passed from this life to her eternal home on August 4, 2023. Born in Tippah County to the late Hugh and Wilma Faye Ayers on November 2,1939, she was the youngest of 3 children. During her early adult years, along with her sister in-law, Warrine Barkley, she was the co-owner of the Kut & Kurl beauty shop in Falkner, MS. She made lifelong friends after years of cuts, curls, and ear-piercings. Jac went to work for Dover Elevators and again made lifelong friends. Not one to be idle for long, after retirement from Dover, she went to work delivering expedited freight for Fedex and traveled extensively throughout the United States and into Canada. Retiring a second time, Jac moved to Clearwater, Florida and continued her adventures of making friends and living the sunny life. Being in Florida, there was never any shortage of visits from her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Returning to Falkner in 2021, she resided with her daughter Penny and son-in-law Butch. She was a member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church.
