About this Item

Hardcover. 244 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.The idea for this book was conceived many years ago and would still be in the procrastination stage had it not been for encouragement of several and one person specifically. A long newsy letter was written to enclose to a second cousin with each Christmas Greeting for many years. Responses would always be, O, your letter was so good, so funny, and we read it over and over. We laughed and wondered how you find the words to describe everything the way you do. You are a born writer and you need to write a book. Each year Jean would be more insistent until finally the author started her first book. In late August 2002, the writer stopped to visit with this special person. News that the book was well on its way was exciting to share. Mental notes were made as the reminiscing went back and forth from things that happened many years before. A few days later, the author sent some sample pages which included descriptive sentences they talked about. Within a few weeks the author received shocking sad news that this vivacious cousin had suddenly passed away. The visitation and funeral reflected her talents and her life with displays of her own original oil paintings, the framed photo of the airplane she owned and flew, and the journal notes of her weekly Bible study. A truly remarkable tribute to Norma Jean Smith Sweet who did not live sixty years in this world for nuthin! This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781420845365

About this title

Synopsis:

The idea for this book was conceived many years ago and would still be in the procrastination stage had it not been for encouragement of several and one person specifically. A long newsy letter was written to enclose to a second cousin with each Christmas Greeting for many years. Responses would always be, "O, your letter was so good, so funny, and we read it over and over. We laughed and wondered how you find the words to describe everything the way you do. You are a born writer and you need to write a book." Each year Jean would be more insistent until finally the author started her first book. In late August 2002, the writer stopped to visit with this special person. News that the book was well on its way was exciting to share. Mental notes were made as the reminiscing went back and forth from things that happened many years before. A few days later, the author sent some sample pages which included descriptive sentences they talked about. Within a few weeks the author received shocking sad news that this vivacious cousin had suddenly passed away. The visitation and funeral reflected her talents and her life with displays of her own original oil paintings, the framed photo of the airplane she owned and flew, and the journal notes of her weekly Bible study. A truly remarkable tribute to Norma Jean Smith Sweet who did not "live sixty years in this world for nuthin!"

About the Author:

She was born in the house her parents built on a forty acre farm. It was located four miles north of Miami Gardens on US 40 between Terre Haute and Brazil Indiana. She attended the Nevins Township school at Fontanet. Growing up she loved being outdoors and was entertained by her father as she rode atop a wagonload of sugar cane, was taught to cultivate corn with a blind sorrel mare and borrowed mule. She was in 4H Club, played an eFlat alto horn in The Nevins Novelteers band, attended the United Brethren church with her parents, and loved being a little sister. She worked in Terre Haute at Commercial Solvents and made life-long friends, married and moved to Mattoon Illinois. She is mom to a daughter and two sons. After her husband, John, passed away, she too, was employed at Eastern Illinois University. Eighteen years later, it is not Greek to her anymore. She worked with students who belong to EIU's award-winning sorority and fraternity system. Her rural Mattoon home is her sanctuary with its birds and other wildlife. She shares many stories with beloved grandchildren. She knows what she believes and why, as taught by parents with the Bible as the Yardstick. She is proud of each name in her family tree: Doty, Creal, Burnett, Seymour, Cox, Beard, Sparks, and Rohrer. She appreciates knowing stories and facts about her ancestors. She shares much of her story in this book, Sixty Years in This Wicked World for Nuthin
