Retired Librarian

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I'm a retired librarian, jelly maker, quilter, and gardener with two sons and 4 granddaughters. I have often traveled alone, but I bought a Class C motorhome last year and started solo RVing. Most of my trips involve visiting family, but my bucket list includes visiting National Parks and Monuments.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I am a serious foodie who loves to cook the old-fashioned way from scratch and host a YouTube channel called PreservingSweetness at where I share recipes and tips on cooking, gardening, and canning, and write articles on a number of topics for a website called Also, I have a Cottage Industry business where I sell my jams and jellies at farmers' markets and special events and have been known to give away a jar or two of jelly from time to time.

JellyGrandma's Pets

My 17-year-old cat travels with me.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I'm rather new at this, so I've only boondocked at a friend's house and a Love's Travel Center, but I'm looking forward to seeing new places and meeting new people.

JellyGrandma's Hometown

My home is in Leesburg, FL, but I'm in the process of moving to the Richmond, VA, area to be closer to my sons, and will split my time between Virginia and Bogalusa, Louisiana, where my sister lives.

Great guest. She’s welcome anytime!

We hosted JellyGrandma for one night and she couldn’t have been a better guest. She is quiet and polite and was great to chat with for a little bit. She also left us with a jar of her homemade jam which is delicious.
I would have her back anytime!!

Short but Sweet!

It was a pleasure to host JellyGrandma. Just a brief overnight stay, but she was lovely to chat with and was a perfect guest!

Pleasure meeting you, safe travels!

It was a pleasure to visit with JellyGrandma, I’m glad she enjoyed her banana split and I look forward to enjoying the jelly! “JG” is the type of person I hoped to meet when I signed on as a Boondockers Welcome host.
