A native of Washington State, Jolene comes from a military family, the sixth of seven children. She laughingly says that she learned how to march before she could walk. Jolene worked as a teacher for McChord Air Force Base/J.B.L.M. for 20 years. She now enjoys retirement, writing romantic mysteries and her blog on Facebook “Angels Speak.”
You can sometimes find her walking dogs, Max and Sophia, gardening, or sharing a laugh and conversation with friends.
The Interactive Cemetery was written to honor creative people who are no longer with us. Talent and heroism come in many different forms; Acting, writing, music, athletics, bravery, and yes, even intuition. Look deep within yourself, and you will find someone truly remarkable...be your own inspiration and never give up.
Jolene has a handsome adult son, who she fondly says looks like a “Young Elvis.” Like all Mothers, she says that he is and always will be, the light of her life.
Coming from rainy Washington, when asked about how she likes the weather...she simply replies, “I’m not sugar, I won’t melt.”
