Jackie June Clayton was born June 1, 1926, in Breckenridge to Floyd and Mary Clayton. The family moved several times, owning and operating dairy farms in Moran, Breckenridge, Grand Prairie, Arlington, Crosbyton and Willow Point. Jackie was a “young war bride” relocating with her husband Norris Stegall when stationed in Bryan and Taylorsville, Utah and following the war, farming near family in Willow Point.

Separation and divorce resulted in a move to Fort Worth. As a single mother of two, she worked as a cashier at the Courthouse Market in downtown Fort Worth. Jackie returned to Willow Point, married and partnered with Ralph Chivers in dairy farming. Together they raised seven boys. A few years after Ralph’s death, she married Marshall Johnson. She was active in the church and community.
