Jeutonne was such a patient person, using punched cards to study slave narratives. Punched cards were the only way to get data to TUCC from UNCG and the tools for analysis were almost non-existent. Jeutonne had ideas on how to accomplish her task and so she did. She was a gentle soul and a persistent, kind person.
