An Amazing Woman

Sunshine Sue was my neighbor when she moved to Georgia. I did not know her as the impressive business woman or musician, but as the woman who taught me to knit, and listened to all the concerns of a high school girl. She was a wonderful friend who helped me through some tough years.

Higdon Family

To Sara Workman Kindt. I believe we are related! Your grandmother, Mary Higdon Workman was sister to my grandfather, Lee D. Higdon. Grandpa's son , Richard "Dick" Higdon, is my dad, so your grandmother was dad's Aunt7. I have an 8x10 picture of Sunshine Sue found behind a picture of my dads Medina HS football team, (Medina, OH), photo in a frame. It was such a surprise, and rather amusing! I hope you see this and it would be great to hear from you!

Great Read!

Thanks for the wonderful piece on my grandmother. She was a real fire ball and I am proud of her accomplishments. One additional aspect of her life was her very strong commitment to her family. Her son Bill (my father) and her daughter Ginger were even more important than her career. She lived and loved fiercely and was taken way too soon. Thanks again.
