Delores was upset about the move. Her son was in South Carolina, her daughter in California, and she was left in a big house in Kentucky with only her dogs and a husband she detested. Janie settled into an apartment only a few blocks from the beach in Santa Monica and wrote to friends that her life was more free and open than it ever had been—and she was loving every minute of it. Romance blossomed anew for Janie in California, again with a lawyer, but that relationship, like the others before it, would pass without commitment.
James Episcopal Church in the picturesque village of Pewee Valley, only about ten miles east of her home. St. James was a beautiful church, built of granite, set on a broad lawn shaded with spreading maples and festooned each spring with dogwood and azalea blossoms. Delores loved the priest there, Father R. C. Board, a traditionalist, and became very active in the church, even serving as a member of the vestry. She disdained the new priest who came after Father Board retired in 1975, led a faction of the congregation that sought to oust him, and eventually left the church in anger because of the bitterness that ensued.
Later, Delores and Janie would drive back to Louisville to the House of Hunan for the Sunday lunch special. For Delores, the day provided a satisfying weekly ritual. She craved ritual. Indeed, it was the reason she belonged to Grace Episcopal. When the Episcopal church adopted a new prayer book, Grace defied the diocese and refused to accept it, clinging to the more ritualistic liturgy of the 1928 prayer book, a defiance that eventually would cause Grace Episcopal to disaffiliate itself from the diocese.
