Nelda Sue Wagoner moved to Decatur during her sophomore year. She worked at the “Curve In” Restaurant, until her 16th birthday. After that Linda Hawke and Sue both worked at Kroger after school. Although Sue was in the Class of 1965, she sped up her time at Mac and graduated a year early with our class, instead of with the Class of '66.
Nine days after graduation, she married her husband J. S. "Kirk" Kirkpatrick on June 13, 1965. He had graduated from Stephen Decatur in 1962.
After they married, they lived in Orangeburg, South Carolina, Taylorville, Illinois, Centralia, Illinois, Morris, Illinois, and New Castle, Indiana, where her husband worked in broadcasting. Sue was a stay at home mom until 1973 when she began her Mary Kay business as a Consultant.
They have 3 adult children and 3 grandchildren.
Sue's first car was a 1962 beige Ford Falcon.
Not too surprisingly, considering her Mary Kay associations, Sue's current car is a 2008 pink Cadillac Escalade. She writes that her new 2011 pink Cadillac Escalade is coming in February 2011.
