Martha Ann Jackson Long

Martha Ann Jackson Long peacefully passed on to her reward after facing a lengthy illness with strength and grace, A longtime resident of Maplewood, she joined the Divine Father on May 22, 2012, buoyed by the caring of her family. Her life is celebrated by her loving husband of sixty-seven years, James Charles Jake Long and by her five children: Elizabeth Robards of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii; James Christopher Long of Sulphur; Mark Long of Haughton; Jonathan Mayhew Long of Denham Springs; and Rebecca Arwen Long of Seattle, Washington. She graced the lives of eight grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. Her radiance warmed family and friends alike during her eighty-three years of life. Her gentle spirit will be dearly missed. A private memorial service will be held at a later date in Shreveport, and her ashes will spread in cherished places.

Memories Timeline


  1. Thinking of all of you. I hold such dear memories of Easter hunts and the special times with Martha Ann at 947. I will always remember her braiding her long black hair, when my hair was always short, short, short! I always looked forward to her angel cards at Christmas. Hope to hug all of you in Shreveport. Rosemary

  2. We are sorry for your loss. Martha Ann was a very dear friend whom we will miss dearly! Our thoughts and prayers are with you Jake and the family.
