We’re Back! In the mid 80’s I was the Marketing and Operations VP for Great Fidelity Life, located in Evansville! Great Fidelity was a subsidiary of an insurance carrier located in Fort Wayne. Basically, one week per month I would travel to Evansville to work with the employees. We hired this wonderful lady (Sharon) to manage the Claims Department. The decision was made to move the company to Fort Wayne and Sharon decided to remain with the company and relocated. Eventually, because of her industry reputation in Claims and management, a company in Atlanta offered her a great deal and she left us!
In 2007 I moved to Georgia and went to her company to see if there was a position available – I’m now too old! Out of respect for the past, Sharon and I went to lunch – we started having regular phone conversations and eventually decided to get married! At the beginning of 2019 we discussed “downsizing” the 2-story home to a ranch style. I asked her “where would you like to move”. Her answer was back to Evansville where she grew up! It seemed like a wish made in heaven, so We’re Back!
