I have a piece of text in an essay where I'm quoting different pieces of a paragraph found on the same page. I'm not sure how to cite this. This question shows how to cite if there are different pages, but if they are on the same page, do I just mark the same page again?

For example, is this correct?

Mrs. Miller lives a lonely life, having “no friends to speak of” (Capote 2), “narrow” (2) interests and rarely travelling “farther than the corner grocery” (2).

If not, what's the alternative? Am I not supposed to have this scenario in the first place? I assumed it was acceptable, since I'm imitating the style I found here.

According to page two of this guide, it is acceptable to put the references at the end.

Using my previous example.

Mrs. Miller lives a lonely life, having “no friends to speak of” , “narrow” interests and rarely travelling “farther than the corner grocery” (Capote 2).
