|Cecil woman takes care of town during storm|
By JIM LANGHAM
CECIL – When Cecil resident Jeanene Lewis returned to her town the Sunday following the massive storm of June 29, she was shocked to see the needs developing among the residents, the elderly in particular.
“When we drove into town, my boyfriend thought of a lady on the edge of town. Sometimes she is gone and sometimes she is there, but he was concerned about her. We drove out to her place to check on her and we couldn’t believe what we saw,” said Lewis. “She was drinking water from the bottom of her freezer and eating crackers. We knew then that we had to do something.”
That was the beginning of a week of tireless energy in which she and neighbor, Mary Kupfersmith and children, Katherine, Courtney and “Little Ray,” literally inventoried the needs of town residents on a daily basis and delivered food and supplies to each home.
