Jackie was born on August 9,1934 in Toledo, as the only child to the late Ruth (English) and Robert Dalzell.

Besides driving school bus and helping with the concession stand, you could find Jackie running her own house cleaning business, working at Beeker Imaging or behind the deli at Kirwen's Market.
