Sisters

How many sisters do you have? I have/had three sisters and we are all very different. My oldest sister Jane was six years older than me(she passed away at the age of 60), my sister Nancy is three years older than me. Then there is my youngest sister Katie. She is eight years younger than me.
Jane was the rebel of us all. She loved to party. She would sneak out of the house with cigarettes in her socks. My father caught her smoking one day and made all of us kids(7 total) sit and watch her smoke a whole pack of cigarettes. I will never forget that! She got pregnant and had a baby at 17. She did graduate high school ten days after having her baby. She moved out of the house right after graduation.
Nancy was the caretaker of us all. She always watched us, did the house cleaning and made us dinner because our mother worked as a waitress and did not come home until after nine o’clock at night.
I was the only athlete out of my sisters. I chose to hang around my three brothers and play all the sports they played. I played field hockey, basketball and softball up until high school. Then I played basketball and softball in college. I did play a year of professional basketball after college. I was the only sister to go to college and graduate. My oldest brother went to college and graduated before me. 53853836_2793561160782844_2488399365769527296_n

Then there is Katie. She is the youngest sister/child of our family. She could do anything she wanted. Everyone always spoiled her. She would have to tag along with us when we went to the park or anywhere else!
We only had four bedrooms in our small apartment. Jane had her own room and Nancy, Katie and I had to share a room. I loved having my sisters near even though we were all very different!

  1. I have/had two sisters. Cathy is 3 years older than me, and Susan was 6 years younger than me. Susan passed away quite a few years ago at the age of 26, and I still miss her a lot. Cathy is one of my most favorite people in the world. Sisters are wonderful! 🙂 ~JudyK

  2. Sisters are the best! I have one sister and she is five years younger than me. Having a sister is having a built in best friend. We have the best childhood memories and we recount them often! Loved hearing your story.
