JUNEAU, Alaska — It’s not the first time the wife of a former J.
Crew intern has described how the incident left her with flashbacks.
“We were living in a tiny cabin, and we had just been transferred to the new facility in San Francisco,” Donna Jones said.
The couple, who are now divorced, said they were relocated from their cabin on the Pacific coast to the San Francisco State Prison on February 3, 1950.
Jones, now 88, said she was a waitress at a restaurant in San Jose when the guard called her to his office.
It was then that she told the story to The Associated Press.
She said she had never heard the guard tell the woman she was the new intern.
When she went back to her cabin on Feb. 9, the new guard had her sit on the bed while the guard made sure the two of them were on the same page.
“He had told us he would take care of everything, and he wanted to make sure that we were both safe and comfortable, and I told him, ‘I’m not really sure if I’m comfortable,'” Jones said in a phone interview.
After she was transferred to San Francisco, Jones said she started feeling more like she could see her husband’s face and see the other woman in the other room.
She said the two had talked about what to do if they needed help.
Jones said she didn’t know how to tell her husband the woman in his room was the woman they were moving into the next day, so she left the house and tried to call the new woman in San Carlos.
She called her husband, and she said her husband told her the woman had been transferred and that he would be waiting.
Jones returned to San Carlos the next morning, and her husband said he saw her.
“I said, ‘Oh, my God, she’s here,'” Jones recalled.
JUNEAu, Alaska (AP) Donna Jones was living in an apartment with her husband and four children when she was moved to the California State Prison at San Francisco on Feb., 3, 1951.
As she walked through the prison, Jones was shocked to see a young woman standing at the front door.
“My husband told me she was from New York,” Jones said of her husband.
He said she told him she was pregnant.
She didn’t want to talk about it with him.
I just kind of felt helpless, she said.
“I felt like he was just going to say something and she would forget about it.
So I just went out into the kitchen and we got up and left.”
Jones said the woman told her she was an intern at the company in the San Carlos prison.
They were transferred to a different prison in San Mateo, California, in late January, 1951, when she said she moved to San Bruno.
In January, 1952, she had her first baby, a boy, and a new wife was born.
While Jones was pregnant, the woman moved back to San Antonio, Texas, and the family moved again to San Diego.
Jones was a cook at a bar in San Diego when she met the other intern.
Jones recalled the moment she saw her husband walking in the kitchen.
“And I went over to him, I said, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to disturb you, but you look so old,” Jones recalled her husband saying.
And I just kind-of smiled at him and said, thank you, and walked out of the kitchen,” Jones added.
Jones remembers her husband going over to her and saying, “I love you, I love you.
We’re going to have a great baby.
“She told her husband she had to leave.
We were all on our way to San Bernardino, California and I just felt so helpless, Jones recalled in the phone interview, as she walked back to the house.
All the way there, she remembered, “It was all a blur.”
After the couple moved to California, Jones’ husband and she were married for about a year.
But Jones said it was hard for her to adjust to life after the relocation.”
And I don’t think I can ever forgive myself for not being able to understand that, and for not understanding that.”
