Jackie Stallone, the mother to the actor Sylvester Stallone, passed in her sleep last Monday in Los Angeles. She died at the age of 98, leaving a long legacy and large family behind.

While primarily known for being the mother of Sylvester, she had led an eventful life long before his birth. Jackie had run away at a young age to join the circus and later in life made her living as an owner of an all-female gym, wrestling promoter and even an astrologer. The latter profession is the one that generated much publicity.

The New York Times once wrote of her psychic prowess at a charity event: “As she walked around the room with a psychic friend and a cocktail. Predictions were spinning out of her like food from a lidless Cuisinart. She had pioneered a new form of divination that involved what she called on her website as ‘rumpology’ or ‘the art of reading the lines, crevices, dimples and folds of the buttocks,’ which she claimed told her what she needed to know about someone’s future, costing about $300 per ‘cheek.'”

Jackie’s other son, Frank Stallone Junior, announced her death on an Instagram post two days earlier. The caption read, “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. She was born on November 29 th 1921 in Washington DC, she lived through prohibition, the depression and World War II. I would talk to her for hours about the 20’s 30’s and 40’s. 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 to much vino. But when you’ve known someone for 70 yrs it tough and sad. She had seven grandchildren and 3 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 sprit to survive and prevail. I’ll miss you always mommy. @officialslystallone”
