Face Time with Jeanne Morrell

Oswego resident Jeanne Morrell, 56, was helping out at her mother’s garage sale in Geneva when she answered 10 questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.  

Where did you grow up? Naperville

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Julia Roberts

First job? Baby-sitting and doing the wash for mom. She marked the dryer with fingernail polish, so I would know where to turn the knob.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A teacher, and I am a special-education teacher in East Aurora School District. I am also the bookkeeper for my husband Mitch’s business, Upper Crust Catering.

A movie you’d recommend? “Nebraska”

Favorite charity? Special Olympics

Do you speak another language? I’m in my fifth class learning Spanish, and I spent five weeks in Spain last summer teaching English to 11- and 12-year-olds.

Do you play an instrument? Guitar

Favorite local restaurant? Fiora’s Restaurant in Geneva

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I grew up down the street from actor Bob Odenkirk who was in “Nebraska.”
