Class of 1974


In Memory of Susan Pierce





Written by Sallie Metcalfe

We were different, she and I,
BUT WE WERE SISTERS

I liked to sew, and she liked to paint.
I liked Motown music, she liked psychedelic.
I was energetic & talkative, she was calm and quiet.
I read People magazine, she read books about
people from all over the world.
I said black, she said white.
BUT WE WERE SISTERS

I liked big parties with lots of people, she liked
intimate dinners with close friends.
I liked Lifetime movies for women, she liked
documentaries.
I used Roundup, she used organic fertilizer.
I drank Coca Cola, she drank green tea.
I said right, and she said left.
BUT WE WERE SISTERS

She loved the outdoors, fresh air, sunflowers,
long hikes and the waters of Puget Sound.
She had a heart of gold and was kind to all.
She had the strength of a lion, but was
gentle as a lamb.
She was against violence, yet was a tenacious fighter.
She will be missed by many. Her life
made a difference in our world.

We were different, she and I,
BUT WE WERE SISTERS
