A Memorial to Eudora Welty

I always enjoy reading my neighbors blog…

Made in Mississippi

A Southern Gallimaufry of Food, Photography and Prose

Editor, writer and photographer, Jesse Yancy lives in Jackson and is the caretaker of the corner garden at Peachtree and Poplar.

I wrote about the pretty little garden tended by a neighbor here before I became acquainted with Jesse.

It turns out we have roots in the same north Mississippi town of Bruce – as they say, it is a small world!  There is a Weyerhauser plant there where they develop innovative forest products and thus the moniker…


if only it had been true!…


 At any rate, Jesse posted this memorial to Miss Welty a week or so ago.

 I had read it but it had been a while and so I thoroughly enjoyed it all over again.

 Written by my friend and Miss Welty’s biographer, Suzanne Marrs, it was read at her memorial service on July 26, 2001.

I hope you will click over to Jesse’s blog for his post on Eudora Welty’s Memorial and meet another Mississippi writer…
