Harvey JenniferHARVEY, Jennifer Ann 'Jenny' (nee Becks)  -  Died of a life well lived in her 89th year, Jennifer Ann Harvey leaves behind a stern injunction to 'write it down.' Jenny travelled through life with a writer’s eye. She never owned a cell phone, preferring the company of the person next to her. She listened compassionately and so people found her a stimulating conversationalist.Born in Banstead, Surrey, Jenny was the only child of a whimsical artist and ne’er-do-well father whose financial adventures kept the family on the margins. As a child, Jenny was often sent to the homes of friends and relatives for long periods of time: the best of these came in the tiny village of Postwick where she lived with three spinsters by the blacksmith’s forge. The village had changed little over the centuries and their cottage even lacked running water. It was there that Jenny danced the Maypole, first tended a little garden patch, slept under a thatch roof, and cried when the boys hunted the rooks and rabbits in the fields.
