Jacqueline Kay Ellicott was born May 5, 1959 at Grand Junction, Colorado to George H. and Dorothy M. Ellicott. She was the second of three children.
Shortly after she was born, the family moved to the ranch at Harrison, Nebraska. In January, 1961 the family moved again to Wray, Colorado, where her father was employed by Colorado State University Cooperative Extension. They later lived in Gunnison, Las Cruces, New Mexico, and a few months in Springfield, Colorado before moving to Eads in October, 1970 where Jacque finished school and graduated from Eads High School in 1977. She was very active in 4-H and successful in many 4-H projects, as well as school activities.
Jacque was married in the fall of 1977 to Eddie Osborne and they resided in Greensburg, Kansas. Summer Dawn was born there in 1981. Jacque attended Dodge City Community College and obtained a two year Associates Degree with an A grade in every subject. She then attended St. Mary of the Plains College, working toward an advanced degree.
In 1984 they moved to Fort Collins where Jacque attended Colorado Sate University. During this time, the couple were divorced.
Jacque suffered a severe head injury in 1986 near Lusk, Wyoming while driving to the ranch with Summer to visit her grandmother. She was hospitalized at Fort Collins for several months and Summer went to live with her grandparents at Eads. Eventually Jacque was moved to Eads and resided there until she decided to move to Greeley in the fall of 1997.
