    Few people know that Sula grew up on a traveling circus as a child. She and her second husband, John, were the voice of “traditionalism” during my time at St. Paul’s Church.

    To Sula’s family, the Mark family has very many found memories of your Mom. From always being welcome to play softball with Brian and then Laura and Steven being our youngest sister’s friends and always allowing our sis to spend many wonderful hours at your house. Your mom was always a great hostess when there was a party going on like New Years Eve. She was a great friend to our Mom. We all loved her. May you all remember the good old days as we do.
