Thread Name: KYTrad (Jean Ritchie) update on illness (Feb 2010)
Subject: Jean Ritchie Illness
As most of you know, Jean Ritchie had a stroke last December and I believe has been hospitalized since. I have no further information on this but I've started this thread so that readers can share whatever news they have. I know that her husband, George Pickow, has been ill as well.

The e-mail address on the Jean Ritchie website is not operational and I'm not comfortable giving out the contact information I have for her, but I know she is a member of the Mudcat community and someone in her family may be checking up on messages here.

So let's all keep her in our thoughts and send our best wishes for her full recovery.
