This nice lady stopped by my place of work today. After we talked for a while I found out her name was Geraldine Lawhon and that her mother and Aunt started Jerre Anne’s cafeteria in 1930. She told me Jerre Anne’s was the restaurant in St Joseph that had the same management for the longest amount of time. She also told me that everything was homemade in the restaurant and nothing was brought in. She is 91, well dressed, and in great health. Nice to meet someone that is such a wonderful part of St. Joseph history.
