Lenawee County Family Researchers, Member Passing

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

On Sunday, the Lenawee County Family Researchers lost a long time member, Jeannette E. Dickerson.  Jeannette was my co-compiler/helper/assistant in one of the very first books I worked on for the club, the work was based on her earlier work of extracting marriages and deaths from early newspapers here in the county. She was a great teacher and a great example of giving back to your society. She has been ill for some years and had been unable to attend meetings.

Jeannette's obituary appears here.   RIP Jeannette.

It's been a tough month for friends, eh? Bless her soul. I am sure that she is smiling as she sees her "student" become so proficient. I know you probably tutor the newbies now and carry on Jeannette's example.

Sorry for your loss.
