Based on the discussion about the passing of George Pickow, I thought I should
update you about Jean Ritchie. After over 50 years of living here in Port
Washington, Jean has returned to her family in Kentucky, living in Berea.
However, shortly after she moved in early May, she fell and hurt her hip, so
she's now in a rehab facility, and will hopefully return to Berea in a few
weeks. Her son Jon is going down to Kentucky for the summer, and he can fill
you in on her progress. Jon can be reached at JPickow@aol.com . The house is
almost on the market, pending some zoning approvals from the village. Feel free
to call or write if there's any other information I can provide. And we're all
grateful that Jean's papers are at the Library of Congress.
