Rex Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015) (79* d) RE: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015) 03 Jun 15

I am sorry to learn that Jean is departed from us but what a gift and legacy she left behind in her music. And how great it was that she would come here and be a fellow 'Catter among us. Then there was the wonderful story of her family, The Singing Family of the Cumberlands. I once asked her to sign one of her earlier albums. She took it and asked, "Is that mine?", she didn't recognize it at first. The point is that she has recorded so much of her life's work that even she could not account for it all. That is a significant legacy. In Janie's post above she said, "Jean Ritchie moved with grace between worlds." How true, grace would be well defined by Jean.
