Caruthersville Housing Authority
Missouri Chapter of NAHRO
I'm 57 years old born and raised in Caruthersville, MO. I moved back to Caruthersville, MO in 1976 when my mother was hit head on by a drunk driver and I quit my job in Cleveland, MS to come back home and take care of her. I stayed in the hospital in Memphis, Tn for three months with my mother then when we came back from the hospital I ended up staying in Caruthersville where I am now the Director of the Caruthersville Housing Authority. I had never married until I was 51 years old and married Mike Hightower of Greenbrier, AR on April 23, 2005. In April 2006 Caruthersvile including my house was hit by a devastating tornado. Mike and I remodeled our house after the tornado and then sold it and moved to a small five acre farm in Caruthersville, MO where we have two horses (Fancy and Dollar), one cat (Stormy Weather), one Llhama (Blossom) two humane society dogs (Snickers and Lola). We both love to ride horses and be outside with our critters. Mike has his own truck and drives hauling bi product used to make bio diesel. My Dad passed away October 19, 2008. I was a Daddy's Girl and always called him my "John Wayne". Life had been hard the past five and a half years but we are making it by just sticking together and toughing it out.
