This morning my brothers and I lost our mother Jackie Stallone . She was the mother to four children, Tommy, Sylvester, Frankie and my late sister Toni Ann. She was a remarkable woman working out everyday full of spunk and fearless . She died in her sleep as she had wished. It was hard not to like her, she was very eccentric and flamboyant person. She was born on November 29 th 1921 in Washington DC ,she lived through prohibition , the depression and World War II . I would talk to her for hours about the 20's 30's and 40's. It was a history lesson. Her mind was as sharp as a razor till the day she died. She never wore a mask a true revolutionary gal . I guess I'm drowning my emotions in tears and to much vino. But when you've known someone for 70 yrs it tough and sad. She had seven grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren . My brother Sylvester took care of her like a Queen for all of her life. I will never be able to call my mom again or have her yell at me why I never got married . But we all loved her and her sprit to survive and prevail . I'll miss you always mommy. @officialslystallone
Jackie Left Impact to Her Family
In the same post, the actor paid tribute to his late mother, whom he described as a remarkable woman. Frank also mentioned how her mother worked out every day despite her age and was “full of spunk and fearless.”
Per Frank, no one would find it hard to like her since she was an eccentric and truly flamboyant woman.
The actor then recalled incredible stories in his mother’s life, including her depression and life during World War II.
“I would talk to her for hours about the 20s 30s and 40s. It was a history lesson. Her mind was as sharp as a razor till the day she died,” he went on. “She never wore a mask a true revolutionary gal.”
Her seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren survived Jackie, as well.
Frank knew how her death would crush his older brother, Sylvester since he “took care of her like a Queen for all of her life.”
She unfortunately also left behind her husband of two decades, Stephen Marcus Levine.
She happened to be the mother of three famous Hollywood personalities. However, she also made her own name by calling herself Queen of Hollywood.
Like her kids, she also achieved fame during her lifetime.
Jackie worked as one of the key creators and trainers on G.L.O.W., The Gorgeous Girls of Wrestling.
Her official website says that the series was a syndicated Las Vegas T.V. show that ran for five years in the 1980s. The show was later on adapted into a Netflix drama in the past few years.
She is also renowned for her deep love for fitness. Jackie even championed women in the competitive, televised athletic sphere.
