Episode 4: Jean Walkinshaw

Jean Walkinshaw is a force of nature. She is in her 90s and lives alone, she’s sharp as a tack, and spends her days creating a video memoir to share with her family. Jean’s amazing. And she’s always been amazing.

Jean Walkinshaw (1926- ) is an award-winning television producer who spent her career profiling important cultural figures from the Pacific Northwest, such as Tom Robbins, George Tsutakawa, Guy Anderson and Roberta Byrd.
