Mildred Jackson was born December 26, 1928, in Orlando, Florida to her parents, Henry Turner and Cleo Turner Lewis.

There she married her first husband, William Boyd Jr. and had a daughter, Shirley Boyd. Mildred held various jobs but her most awarding job was a partner with her friend Verice Smith at Verice's Beauty Salon in East Orange, New Jersey from 1967-1999.

On April 26, 1967, Mildred married the love of her life, Woodrow Jackson. In 1999, Mildred and Woody relocated to Orlando, Florida.

Mildred joined Tangelo Baptist Church in June 2000 and was a faithful member since.  Mildred enjoyed life to the fullest.
