Susan Sheppard’s former husband Roger Sheppard and daughter Scarlet Sheppard speak to the group who gathered Sunday afternoon for a memorial walk in her honor. Susan passed away last week. Susan’s friend and colleague Tom Moore was also present at the event and said Susan is looking down with a smile on her face. “Susan meant so many different things to so many different people. To see these people coming out here today to honor her and remember her is great,” he said. “In spirit, I think she will be with us all throughout this.” (Photo by Candice Black)
About 100 community members attended a walk Sunday afternoon in honor of the late Susan Sheppard. The trek began at the Blennerhassett Hotel before ending at the Riverview Cemetery where friends and loved ones honored Susan’s memory with songs, memories and poems. The Haunted Tours of Parkersburg will continue as Lynn Stone talked about Susan’s storytelling abilities and said “I will never fill those little shoes but I will do my (best) because this makes 25 years,” she said.
