Humans of Downey - Onalee (Sue) #1


"My mom, Leona, made up my first name by switching the two parts of her name around. I take care of little ones and Sue is easier for them to say. My husband's name is Ken, so my daughter's name is Kimberlee. My granddaughter's name is Ashlee and my grandson's middle name is Lee.

"My husband and I met at Warren High School. I was going with his best friend who decided he liked another girl better than me. So, 'C'est la vie'. Well, we got to talking since we already knew each other. Then he asked me out to the Homecoming Dance. I later found out that I was the only girl he ever dated. We continued to date through high school, although most of our time together was because of his being in Marching Band and I in Drill Team. Wherever they went, we went. A month to the day after I graduated, we were wed. I was 17 and he was 19. We've been married 50 years this July. We have lived most of our lives in Downey."
