Jacqueline Stallone passed away this morning at the age of 98. Best known as the mother of Sylvester and Frank Stallone, she was much more than just the parent of famous brothers.
Here is part of what Frank posted on his Instagram…
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.
Jackie, as she was known, was indeed a remarkable woman. She was always into fitness and training. As a young woman she performed as a trapeze artist! She was also a nightclub dancer. Jackie Stallone was the first woman to have a daily exercise and fitness show in Washington, D.C. Later in her career she owned Barbella’s, a gym for women.
Jackie became a popular guest on talk shows where she discussed not only her famous sons but also her astrology books and psychic hotline. She also became involved with GLOW – the Gorgeous Women of Wrestling!
Jackie Stallone was a powerhouse. Frank was right in describing her as eccentric, flamboyant, fearless and hard not to like.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jacqueline Stallone’s family, friends and fans.
