Living, as I do, in a "matriarchal" Mediterranean society, Mrs Jennings-esque women abound! Sometimes, like Mrs J, they can be irritating, bordering on infuriating (or, if one has the temperament of a Marianne, beyond infuriating), but most of us wind up like the Colonel, ignoring their surface faults and appreciating the warm heart and sincerely good intentions beneath the chatty busy-bee surface.
Taking this to Austenuations: Mrs J is almost like the better angel (to continue Robbin's metaphor) of a Mrs Norris (imo the most SUTH-worthy woman in the JA canon...).
