Harriet Gladys Jackson, 90, of Welch, died Saturday, August 27, 2022 at Deer Crest in Red Wing.  She was born May 29, 1932, in Minneola Township, to Pearlner and Borghild (Gunderson) Thompson.  She attended country school in Hader and graduated from Wanamingo High School. After high school she attended business college and then worked for the Department of Agriculture.  On April 23, 1955, she was united in marriage to Dyrol “Dyke” Jackson at Aspelund Emmanuel Lutheran Church and they lived in Wanamingo.  For several years she stayed home, caring for and raising their children.  She also worked for Monsanto.    In 1969, they moved to Welch.  Harriet worked for Tri-Valley Construction until her retirement at age 85.  She had been a member of Aspelund Emmanuel Lutheran Church and then Cross of Christ Lutheran Church, where she was a very active member of the Cross of Christ WELCA and Cross of Christ Bible Study Group. She enjoyed playing a round of golf when she could but truly enjoyed baking and cooking, having collected numerous recipes and cookbooks throughout her life.  Her bread, cinnamon rolls, raspberry jam and applesauce were some of her specialties.  Most of all, Harriet loved her family and spending time with them.
