Miss Kim aka Lisa Lee
After my mom died our father hired a succession of housekeepers/sitters because he was working full time in the Air Force.
We had a couple of live in housekeepers, but by far the best and most remembered is Miss Kim.
She came over from Korea to work and lived with us for a year I believe. She was very sweet, very naive and very kind.
She cooked wonderful Korean meals for us.
We introduced her to pop culture and music. She loved the theme song from "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte".
I seem to recollect that it was 1973 when she was with us.
All good things don't last though. She met with local Koreans from time to time and eventually met and married a man and moved out to start a new life.
At one point she was a dental assistant in Springfield.
I do remember her coming by once with her small daughter. She seemed happy and her daughter was such a cutie.
Being young and uninformed we weren't always the best behaved and she did have to put up with our antics from time to time.
But, we all came to love her and when she left we were all very sad.
I found this photo of Randy helping her go over her English. She really wanted to learn! She was very bright!
Thank you Miss Kim!
