Your memories of Jean are perfect. She was in good humor and always available to answer questions about any of Nature's details, insect, butterfly, animal, plant. . If she didn't know the answer, she knew who did.
There are few others as knowledgeable. She will be missed.
Thanks again for your tribute.

The M.O.S. has lost an enthusiastic and supportive birder, with the passing of Jean R. Worthley. Her obituary appeared yesterday (17 April) in the Balto. Sun. Long-time Baltimore area residents will remember her as "Miss Jean" of "Hodgepodge Lodge", a children's TV nature program of earlier times.
I met her and husband Elmer when giving a slide presentation of Mushrooms of Maryland at their home on Bonita Ave., just next door to the MPT building (back of which was Hodgepodge Lodge!). In addition to her M.O.S. and other affiliations, she and Elmer made a number of appearances at the annual N.A.M.A.(N. Amer. Mycological Ass'n) annual forays, where we would again trade pleasantries. Her support of Cylburn(Mansion) and BBC birding activities, among other interests, is well known
I personally have lost a valued friend of my generation, a person of exceptional intelligence and wit, who celebrated Life in all it's forms, in loving fashion on this planet Earth.
