On December 16, 1972, she married Russell Miller, Jr. They raised three daughters, Cynthia, Jamie and Stefani and two sons, David and Anthony.
Jacky had a passion for quilting, road trips and being a member of the LDS church. At her passing, she was the current president of the Pacific Northwest Chapter for Quilts for Kids, an organization that donates quilts to kids in need. Jacky was baptized as a member of the LDS church at age 14. She loved to learn about the church teachings, study the history of the church and research her ancestry. She even became a sister missionary and served by helping people find employment. Jacky also loved a road trip.
