The Greater Louisville Region lost a major life line with the passing of member Jackie Johnson. She had been with us from the very beginning, organizing our programs before taking the roles of Region Librarian and assisting with the yearly Tea Room, with her husband Paul, at our annual Jane Austen Festival. But most importantly, Jackie was our call to arms. Upon the announcement of Greater Louisville hosting the 2015 JASNA AGM, Jackie spent the next four years making sure every member knew how important of an honor had been bestowed upon us. She was in the thick of it, making sure everything was going to be perfect. Unfortunately, Jackie became sick and passed away in December 2014. Before she left us, she spent her last moments going over Breakout Speaker applications and listening to good friends reading to her from her beloved Jane. It is with this devotion in mind that the Greater Louisville Region of JASNA will not only be dedicating our upcoming AGM to the memory of Jackie Johnson, "The Woman Who Knows A Lot" as Austen-scholar John Mullan dubbed her upon their formidable meeting, but we are also offering a scholarship to attend our AGM.
