In 1972 Jeanne LeMay was named Miss Rhode Island Universe and went on to Puerto Rico to compete in the Miss USA Pageant. It was here that she met Linda Thompson, who was Miss Tennessee. The two were assigned as roommates and immediately became close friends. A month later Jeanne moved to Memphis at Lindas request, and so began the fairy tale portion of her life.Jeanne and Linda were invited to meet Elvis Presley one night, and Linda and Elvis clicked. She later moved into Graceland, where she remained for almost 5 years. Jeanne was privileged to accompany Elvis and Linda on the tour circuit and later went to work for Elvis as one of his secretaries. Elviss generosity extended to Jeanne as he gifted her with a diamond ring, a watch, and a car. She also was afforded the privilege of being able to stay at Graceland with Linda when Elvis was out of town. It was during these visits that she was able to take the much-sought-after photos of the upstairs of Graceland. After much urging by her friends, Jeanne has told her story and shared her very special pictures so that the fans will know more about the man who became the greatest entertainer of the 20th century.
