I am so sorry to hear that Sue has passed. Even more so to hear that "Pocket" has. I owe Sue Durshimer a lot. She trained me in my last two years of High School she took me under her wing to train me to be a Beautician. I took my State Board and did well , due to her realistic way of teaching. I have always remembered her fondly for all she taught me. Today, I am 63 years old and am a retired farmer. Life changes all about as time passes. My life has been through many changes but a lot of my successes have been through the work ethic she gave me and the goals she insisted I work toward. Would she be surprised today to find out that I turned out to be a good student!. Not as a Hairdresser but , a good student of life!!!. God Bless Sue for all her contributions
