Jackie was famous in Granville for walking and reading simultaneously every day, regardless of the weather. Reading and walking were her two favorite things to do. She was a twenty-five-year member of a book club that included Angela and their great friends Carol Murray and Melia Lamoreaux. They convened monthly and read, rated and discussed nearly 300 books.
Jackie loved Granville and Granville loved her back.
