R.I.P. Cookie Lady

For over 30 years, Jane Curry, also known as the “Cookie Lady,” welcomed bikers into her Afton, VA home to clean up and eat, well, yes, cookies. Curry was 91 years old. From The Hook’s obituary:

“I asked how much for a dozen cookies?” Parker recalls. “She said, ‘Oh, honey, the cookies are free, but you need a bath. Go on up and take a shower,  and then come down for some cookies.”

Cold Splinters wrote about the Cookie Lady back in January, so if you happened to miss it, click here for more info. She was a pretty amazing woman.

    Nice lady… Reminds me a little of Dervla Murphy, rode from Ireland to India in the 1960′s and never stopped: http://www.dervlamurphy.com/ Another tough cookie!
