Another adventure for ‘Mama Sue’

Published: Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at 11:22 AM.

A journalist for many years as she raised her family alone, Cronkite moved to Apalachicola around 2000 to be near her daughter Mary Lynn Rodgers. A former reporter and editor at the Birmingham News, she worked as a writer for the Times for a few years.

She now plans to relocate to the Clearwater area where she will live next door to her daughter Alda Thomas and grandchildren Erin Rodgers, and Michael and Merri Rose Fink.

Cronkite said she would undertake a new adventure. She plans to write a book about a woman who hosts her own wake. She said she will frequently return to Apalachicola and plans to release the novel here once it is published. - By LOIS SWOBODA
