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

A movie you’d recommend? “Nebraska”

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.”
