Barbara Sue (or Bobbi Sue) graduated from Luce Township High School in Richland, Indiana in 1957.

For many years, Barbara enjoyed and worked part-time as a Postal Rural Mail Carrier in Kewaunee, Wisconsin. This position was not for the faint-of-heart due to the winter driving conditions in Wisconsin. Barbara had many interests and hobbies; she was an accomplished painter, world-wide traveler, master seamstress and avid book reader. She volunteered with Kewaunee United Methodist Church ministries and traveled to dozens of countries spreading God’s Word and building new churches. Barbara earned her well-deserved nickname; “Indiana Mom” from her missionary travel adventures.
