We lost a good one, Shirley Suckow. Wow. Shirley.
I met Shirley and Bob Suckow in the spring of 1997 when Shirley made a donation of a treasured family artifact to the Jasper County Museum. She and Bob worked side by side with the steam engine restoration to produce the splendid water wagon that we’ve been pulling in every Fourth of July parade for nearly a quarter century, though sadly, not this year. She was a tireless ambassador for the museum and always on hand to cheer the community and its celebrations.
Give Shirley a thought the next time you see her thoughtful gift to the community. We’ll blow the whistle for her.
