Jeanie our Waitress at Camp Schimm

Jeanie was our waitress at Camp Schimm.
Jeanie knitted a pair of baby booties for our first baby. The baby, Angela, is now 47 years old. During the Tanabata Festival in 1999, an effort was made to locate Jeanie and someone called and reported that she had married a soldier and was living in the United States. She was a wonderful person and everyone liked her a lot.
