I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere, but Jackie Gingrich, first wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has died.
She was from my hometown of Carrollton, Ga., and here is the obituary from the funeral home:
From the obit:
Jackie taught mathematics at high schools in South Georgia, ending her career at Carrollton High School. She taught for over 20 years. She retired near the time when her grandchildren were born in order to spend time with them. Jackie spent her last year near them at the William Breman Jewish Home in Atlanta, where she made friends, baked bread and loved her physical therapy.The issues with her former husband speak for themselves. I hope that the Kos community will remember a woman who was in many ways a private person and who did not seek the limelight. Also, she was a very good friend of my mother's and many other people here in Carrollton.
