Jessie Butler Herdic

Jessie was a very special person.  She greatly enjoyed her time in South Orange and the beaches of Cape May, New Jersey, the lake in King George, Virginia, Jessamine Ridge in Louisiana and later times in the Washington, DC (where she was a girls soccer fan!) and New York areas.  As a graduate of Vassar College in English Literature, she was well known for her beautifully written letters and her passion for books. Jessie‚Äôs sweet kindness was felt by all.  This time now is about happiness and joy.  She wants us all to celebrate her long life, as she would have been 94 on May 22nd.  Jessie passes on her love for the outdoors, wildlife, animals, pets and education to her children and grandchildren.  Her personal integrity and kindness leave us all changed by her great spirit.
