Susie Sherman lived in a time when you used everything you had, over and over until it was pretty well used up.  Most women made quilts and Susie was no exception.  Just the other day I came across the beginning of a Crazy Quilt that Susie was working on… here’s what it looks like… I wonder what other garments might have been part of this quilt had she been able to finish it.  Notice her basting threads are still in the quilt.

Hi Folks,

Isn’t this a lovely picture of Moses and Susie?  It was taken in Drummond, Montana, probably about 1938, prior to Moses retirement from the Railroad.  Moses and Susie subsequently moved to Tacoma, Washington where he died December 5, 1942.  Susie lived until July 3, 1962…. at the time of her death Susie was 102 years of age.
