Jacqueline Ann was born on January 17, 1937 to parents Chester and Florence Chapman in Saint Paul, Minn. She was baptized at the Cathedral in St. Paul and went through first communion and confirmation at St. Theodore Catholic Church. She attended St. Theodore’s grade school and graduated from Albert Lea High School in 1955. She worked at National T Grocery Store as a checker, then at Woolworth’s Dime Store at the lunch counter.
On June 16, 1956 she married John Weitzel; to this union a daughter, Patricia (Weitzel) Thies and a son Donald Weitzel were born. John and Jackie were married for 28 years before his sudden passing in 1984. Then in 1985 she married Cornell ‘Corny’ Anderson for 24 years until his passing in 2009.
She worked as a Salvation Army Thrift Store manager from 1985 until 2009. In 2010 Jackie started helping at the Salvation Army Meal site for lunches through 2016 when her health started to decline.
