Mary Sue Hubbard Quote
"...To my dear husband, auditor, teacher and our Founder, go my thanks and acknowledgement for having given the most precious gifts of Freedom and true Beingness to me and my fellow Man. Without him, none of this would have been possible; and so to Ron goes my everlasting gratitude for having provided for all of us the Road to Clear."
Memories of Mary Sue Hubbard

I FIRST MET THE GAL in Jan. 1957...... Ron was 46 and she 26 and in her dress and manner she affected a look that made their ages seem closer. Sue was pretty, a strawberry blond, with a shapely figure and a great smile and laugh. She was intensely loyal to Ron and fiercely protective. As a staff auditor I got to know her more fully since she was D of P and held auditor conferences when Ron was elsewhere. She held a lot of hats [posts] pertaining to corporate, admin, and money. I came to be much closer to her when Ken Barrett, Dir of Admin, blew7 just after Xmas 1957 and I was elevated from the Distribution Center Inc. (precursor of Pubs) to Dir of Admin.
Sue, who was preggers [pregnant], with either Quentin or Suzette (I can't recall) would hold get togethers for staff Moms and their kids which were very pleasant. She was a good mom and had many useful ideas concerning kids and their diet. She had acquired an antique crib of some value but before using it for her baby she dis-assembled it and boiled much of it to insure it was not harboring any disease (or entheta)...
Being wife to L. Ron Hubbard was an exciting and at times very trying task, that until much later, she carried off in fine fashion.
