Jacky loved R. Kelly’s music, loved to dance, the Baltimore Ravens, and spending time with her family and friends. Jacky loved to pamper herself; she always looked like a model. She loved to shop, cook, dine out, play cards, play horseshoes, bowling, football and car shows. She loved her mustangs - they stayed clean!
Jacky worked various jobs: Marriot International Crystal City, The Fish Market, Clinton, MD, and the Gaylord Hotel. Jacky retired due to complications of diabetes. Jacky moved to Winston-Salem with her best friend, Jackie Neal, who cared for her while she battled cancer.
