Famous Women---J

 

Our famous J is:

Jacqueline Kennedy (1929-1994)


Quick Facts:

Named after her father.

In elementary school, one of
her teachers stated " she is a
bright child who often mis-
behaved---she is full of the
devil" said her teacher.
Her Mother felt that she
misbehaved out of boredom
due to finishing her work
before the others in class.

Received a French Lit degree
in college.

Photographer for the Washington
Times-Herald after college.

Introduced to JFK by friends in
1952.
Married in 1953.
Their wedding was considered
the social event of the season.
There were 700 guests at the
wedding and 1,200 guests at
the reception.

Former First Lady of the United
States from 1961-1963 (assass-
ination of the President)
Third youngest First Lady.
Wife of the 35th President.

Mother of four.
Two passed in infancy.

During her time as the First Lady,
she was known for her restoration
of the White House.

Also known as a "fashion icon."

She was riding in the motorcade
when JFK was assassinated in
Dallas. After the funeral she
and the children quietly left
the public eye.

For the final two decades of her
life, she was a book editor.

Mrs. Kennedy is remembered for
her style, elegance and grace.

Ranks as one of the most popular
First Ladies.

*Here is another famous woman
that has had a lot written about
her. She is a mystery to me, I guess
because of the tragedy with JFK
happened a couple of years before
I was born.
I do enjoy reading about her.

Tomorrow will introduce you to
Famous K.

  1. Catching up today! I just watched a documentary on Jackie Kennedy. It's interesting to me because her daughter and I are the same age, so I feel as though I'm learning the history of the era I grew up in.
