Sue was also a determined worker and put in many hours at various jobs
to help pay her way through college. She was employed at Diamond Match
Company making toothpicks and other wood products until they closed the
plant and relocated it in Mexico where the labor was cheaper.
A couple of restaurants also had the misfortune to hire Sue as a waitress
because it seemed that every place she worked ended up going out of
business. One in Turner, Maine served all their food on paper plates. We ate
there several times and the food was excellent but it didn't stay in
Sue also worked at a big chain restaurant near the Maine Mall in Portland
and you guessed it, they closed the doors too.
