his 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 every day full of spunk and fearlessness.
She died in her sleep as she had wished. It was hard not to like her; she was a 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.
Frank further continued,
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. She never wore a mask, a true revolutionary gal. I guess I'm drowning my emotions in tears and too much vino.
His message added,
But when you've known someone for 70 yrs it tough and sad. She had seven grandchildren and three 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 spirit to survive and prevail. I'll miss you always, mommy.
