Transcript IN MEMORIAM Jeanne Alleman died April 16, 1975, her long battle with cancer over. In 1970 the doctors told her she had maybe two years, at the outside, to live. They underestimated her. She lived five. Every day, for one thousand, eight hundred and twenty-five days, she lived with the knowledge that she was dying. Although I didn't know it, she was dying when I met her over two years ago. I found out about her condition only by accident from someone else, several months later. Jeanne and I had only two or three private conversations, one of which was held over a Bloody Mary in the bar of the Shamrock Hilton during a NOW National Board Meeting. We fell into that easy, relaxed conversation that comes quite naturally between feminists and, although nothing earth- shaking was said, we left with the knowledge that we shared a common purpose. I went with several other NOW members to Jeanne's memorial service. As I sat and looked at the flag-draped coffin of Captain Jeanne P. Alleman, United States Army, I remembered sitting in Austin three days earlier listening to fatuous, self-proclaimed constitutional authorities, misogynistio female impersonators, a cretinous carpetbagger from the Tennessee legislature, and that mutated Barbie Doll, Phyllis Schlafly, — all proclaiming that women should not have equal rights because they are unfit to serve in the armed forces of their country. Unfit, my foot. Just then Jeanne's sister Renee came to talk to us. "I just wanted to tell you how much the movement meant to Jeanne", she said. "It was the one thing that kept her going." That just about broke me apart. Jeanne left a generous bequest to Houston NOW. Her family requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made either to NOW or to the American Cancer Society. If you wish to make a donation to NOW in Jeanne's memory, please make such a notation on your check so we can keep an accurate account for her family. Jeanne died as she had "lived, with dignity. Her life and her death are a shining exarrm] e to us all. She died free. Jan Dilbeck
