Bushnell resident Marsha Perkins said her aunt Doris Woodward, was her idol.
Perkins said she remembers Woodward, a registered nurse, had the “perfect look,” with her white shoes, white uniform and starched white hat.
She looked so perfect that Perkins wanted to grow up to be a nurse just like her.
“Then I found out what nurses have to do — yucky stuff with sick people,” she said with a laugh.
While Perkins chose a different path, she can see that still, to some degree, she was inspired by her aunt.
