Sue Wagoner

Sue Wagoner

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.

Her Mary Kay business grew and grew, and her husband became her business partner. They built an organization of 4000 Consultants and Directors. They lived in New Castle from 1973-1993, then moved to Heritage Lake for 10 years, and finally relocated to Plainfield, all in Indiana, in 2003. Today, Sue Wagoner Kirkpatrick is a National Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics.

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.
