[pct-l] PCT 02 hiker and much more, Capetown Jenny
I remember making her nametag for the ADZ - was it 02 or 03? How absolutely
tragic - thanks, Linda, for letting us know. It focuses those of us still
on the trail of this world to get out there and experience it before
unanticipated death takes us. And it reminds me of an old cowboy song I
listened to as a child - will there be sagebrush in heaven?

CAPETOWN JENNY - PCT '02
August 4th, 2004.
>From Dennis Huddleston, her cousin.
It is with great sadness that I report to all of you who knew and loved her,
or had even briefly met her, and loved her, that Cape Town Jenny died today,
at about four oclock, at Reynolds Plantation, eighty miles east of Atlanta.
Until three weeks ago, she had told no one, not even her husband, David,
that she had had a breast lump for several years.
She slowly slipped into a coma yesterday, and died peacefully in her sleep
this afternoon, with David at her side. She was fifty two.
She was a veteran of the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail,
where she had met and made innumerable friends.
Her passing is mourned by her friends, sister and other family members.
(Note from Linda Jeffers - An hour ago David came to my home to tell me of
Jenny's passing. I asked him to write something for her friends. David has
attached a photo of Jenny to this e-mail he just sent to me. You may view
the photo David sent at http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?id=75309. I
have also uploaded another photo of Capetown on the next journal entry
