Mrs. Helen Jackson Carpenter Daniel affectionately known as “Mama Joy”, 95, of Smiths Station, AL passed away Friday, January 7, 2022 at the Columbus Hospice House in Columbus, GA surrounded by her family after suffering from a heart attack and a long battle with Alheizmer’s.

Mrs. Daniel was born January 31, 1926 in Phenix City, AL, daughter of the late Henry Grady Jackson and Maggie Armstrong Jackson.  She enjoyed cooking and keeping her yard but her greatest joy was that of taking care of her family.  Mrs. Daniel was a long time member of Smiths Station Baptist Church.

Carpenter; great-grandchildren, Stewart Cole Lawson (Samantha) and Abbey Lawson Toland (John); great-great-grandson, John Greyson Toland; dearly loved cousins, nieces, nephews and long time friends.

The family would like to extend a special acknowledgement to Jessica Vaughn, CNP, and the staff of both the Greenhouse at Calvary and Columbus Hospice for their love and kindness shown to our beloved mother “Mama Joy”.
