Sherry Jackson Death

Sherry Jackson Death – Sherry D. Jackson, retired American actress and former child star, who was born on February 15, 1942 in Wendell, Idaho, to Maurita has become a victim of Death hoax. We are not sure of where the rumor is coming from but we learnt that Sherry Jackson, American retired actress has passed away.

The origin of the death hoax is still unconfirmed, we are sure someone started it on social media, the reason behind this is also unknown. However, we confirmed that Sherry Jackson is very much alive.

Her Background and Early Life;

Jackson was born in Wendell, Idaho, to Maurita[1] (or Maurite) Kathleen Gilbert and Curtis Loys Jackson, Sr. Her mother provided drama, singing, and dancing lessons for Sherry and her two brothers, Curtis L. Jackson, Jr., and Gary L. Jackson, beginning in their formative years. After her husband died in 1948,[citation needed] Maurita moved the family from Wendell to Los Angeles, California.

By one account Maurita, who had been told while still in Idaho that her children should be in films, was referred to a theatrical agent by a tour bus driver whom they met in Los Angeles. According to another, she was referred by the friend of an agent who saw Sherry eating ice cream on the Sunset Strip. Apocryphal perhaps, but within the year Sherry had her first screen test, for The Snake Pit with Olivia De Havilland, and by the age of seven appeared in her first feature film, the 1949 musical You’re My Everything, which starred Anne Baxter and Dan Dailey.

In 1950, young Sherry became friends with actor Steve Cochran while working with him on The Lion and the Horse. Steve introduced his friend, writer Montgomery Pittman, to Sherry’s widowed mother. A romance developed, and Pittman married Maurita Jackson in a small ceremony on June 4, 1952, in Torrance, California, with Sherry as flower girl and younger brother Gary as ring-bearer; Cochran himself was Pittman’s best man. In 1955 Cochran hired Pittman to write his next film, Come Next Spring, the first that Cochran produced himself. Sherry played the part of Cochran’s mute daughter Annie Ballot, a role Pittman wrote specifically for his step-daughter.

During the course of appearing in several of the Ma and Pa Kettle movies during the 1950s as Susie Kettle, one of the titular couple’s numerous children, she also appeared in The Breaking Point, which starred John Garfield in the actor’s penultimate film role. In 1952 she portrayed the emotionally volatile visionary and ascetic Jacinta Marto in The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima and the following year played John Wayne’s daughter in the football-themed Trouble Along the Way.
