Jenny Anne Easther was born on 28 January, 1956 at Maylands to Emily and Cyril Watson. She attended Athelstone Primary and Campbelltown High School.
Her first job was with Target, Newton when she was in third year High. On paydays she would treat herself to burgers, chips and ice cream. Jenny hated 3rd year and skipped classes most of that year.
Her Aunt Joan Williamson (Bindery) suggested she try the Old Guv for a job which she did. Jenny started at KWR in 1972 as a copyholder and then went upstairs to the Bindery. There she made many friends and spent hours at the window watching the Festival Theatre being built.
At Netley after getting aggro with the Econobinder she was moved out of the bindery up to Photomechanical working under the late Harry Van Straalen and Barry James.
At last Jenny had found her true calling and working in the Office it soon became apparent that she was the real boss of the area. She was nicknamed Mrs Mangles, as she was always chatting, giving orders and knew everyone’s business. She ran the rackets too selling choccies and running the Melbourne Cup Sweep with the late Ian Hobb.
Jenny met husband Gary on a Blind date in March 1974, and in November 1975 they got married at All Souls Church of England, St. Peters.
