Jackie was born in Price, Utah on July 17, 1947 to Alfred Leroy and Nettie Lovell Tryon O’Neil. Jackie worked many jobs but was assistant manager of Pizza Hut for 20 years.
Jackie loved many things in life including rock tumbling, jewelry making, arrowhead hunting, and listening to music, but most of all she loved her family. She was the “Rock” in our lives, a hard-working woman who will be very much missed.
