Jeanne-Elise Marie Heydecker
With my hero, my grandfather, Cliff Glynn (1913-1996).
September 8, 1960-
m. Steven Maurice Nunes January 8, 1984-1994
Jeanne-Elise grew up in Foxborough, MA attending public schools. Summers involved horse camp or additional schooling: Bridgewater State College at age 13 (Project Contemporary Competitiveness Accelerated Studies Program), and Boston Architectural Center at age 14. At age 15, she joined the Rotary Exchange Program and attended Sir J. J. College of Architecture in Bombay, India. After extensive travel in the area, she returned home to finish high school with her class.
Upon graduation, she attended the Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, NM, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA, majoring in graphic design at both institutions. After a brief stint working with the retarded, she and her soon-to-be husband, Steven Maurice Nunes moved to California in 1982.
At that time, the country was in recession and the past-governor, Ronald Reagan, had
closed the institutions in California, so there was no work for people who worked in
computers, nor for those working in mental health. After their savings ran out, they lived
in their van in some of the nicest parking lots in Palo Alto and Mountain View, suburbs of
San Francisco. In spite of their living arrangements, they managed to spend weekends in
Carmel and Monterey while looking for work in the San Francisco area. This became a bit
stressful, so they moved to Montesano, WA to stay with a Pentacostal reverend and his
family. They found work in an institution working with the retarded and emotionally
disturbed. They found a small house, bought a second Doberman and sought to build a life
for themselves there.
In February, 1983, they decided to move back to Boston to get married. They loaded up the van, grabbed the two dogs and left the United States. They traveled cross country through Canada, arriving in Vermont two weeks later.
They were married on January 8, 1994, and lived in Waltham, MA for 4 years before
purchasing a condominium in Nashua, NH.
In 1992, Jeanne-Elise left Steve Nunes and met Derek Lang, who moved to NH with her. On December 8, 1993, she gave birth to William Creagh Heydecker- Lang. Five months later, Derek was removed from the household due to his extreme alcohol and drug addictions, and Jeanne-Elise continued to raise their son, who is now called William Creagh Heydecker III. Mr. Lang is allowed no contact with his son.
Jeanne-Elise has won a number of awards for her work, including a charter entry in Marquis' Who's Who in Advertising, and a nomination for Young Direct Marketer of the Year in 1990 by the Direct Marketing International Council. In 1978, she received a Certificate of Merit for her youth ambassadorship to India from the Board of Selectmen, making the Heydecker family the only family in town with three members awarded with Merit Certifications in the history of the town. In 1976, Jeanne-Elise was elected American Team Leader of the Darjeeling Multicultural Expedition by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations. In 1975, she was awarded a letter of commendation from the Boston Architectural center acknowledging her as the youngest student to complete the Center Summer's coursework.

May 10, 1962-1998
Derek was born in Somerville, MA, and grew up in Burlington, attending public schools.
After a brief stint in the USMC, Derek returned home to concentrate in the warehousing
field for the following eight years. When William was born he was living with Jeanne-Elise
Heydecker, but due to his advanced addiction to drugs and alcohol, he was told to leave
the family due to his destructive influence on their safety and sense of well
being. His background is 100%
Scottish, and he is a member of the MacDonald Clan.
