And since she was born in 1921, I thought no one probably remembered her. But Google revealed that actor Seamus Dever claimed her as his cousin. It turns out that her second marriage was to Seamus's second cousin (once or twice removed, I would guess, given that he was born in 1976). But that's all just too confusing, so I say he is now my cousin, too! He is currently appearing in the new show, Castle, about a mystery writer who teams up with a cop.
Seamus says Jeanne encouraged him in his acting, sent him books and made recommendations about schools, but died before he did anything professionally. I'm just happy that a woman who meant a lot to me went on to mean a lot to someone else. She never had any kids, so it's up to us to remember.
And not only that, but Seamus also is some kind of cousin with Feist (AKA Leslie Feist), the Canadian singer who has such a catchy tune used in a Mac commercial. And I say, if he is related to Feist, then so am I!
