Jeanie Cross / Allen: Miss Georgia 1962
I have served on many arts, cultural, and social services boards and organized many events, but my favorite was chairing the 1994 World Canals Conference, which led to years of exploring and boating with friends on historic canals and inland waterways in the UK, Europe, Canada, and New England.
Richard and I have six interesting, successful middle-aged children, each with a postgraduate or professional degree, scattered from Honolulu to Manhattan, and nine perfect grandchildren. The oldest are two nine-year-olds who live in Atlanta and play on opposing Buckhead Baseball teams – Philip Cronje plays for Storm and Randolph Smith pitches for Thunder, so we head down I-20 to cheer for as many Thunder-Storm games as possible. Life is good.
