This storyboard does not have a description.
Mrs. Dubose is one of the Finches neighbors. Like everyone else Mrs. Dubose doesn't like the fact that Atticus is representing Tom Robinson, but she is more vocal about it. Jem isn't too happy about it, and it makes him do something he never thought he would do.
Jem finally snaps at all the comments Mrs. Dubose has been making. He destroys her garden by whacking off all the petals of her camellias. When his father, Atticus, found out Jem's punishment was that he had to read to Mrs. Dubose everyday for a full month.
One day when Jem was reading to Mrs. Dubose she had a spasm caused by the drugs she had been taking. It startled Jem and made him not want to read to Mrs. Dubose anymore. Instead of him not feeling sorry for her, Jem didn't like her more, or so Scout thought.
Mrs. Dubose dies from her overdose on drugs.
Jem doesn't have to read to her anymore but, she still gave him a peace offering to thank him.
Jem is upset about Mrs. Dubose's passing because he was starting to like her.
