Lucy became unable to earn enough money for her and four children to survive in rural Arkansas in the early 40's.  Her sister, Elizabeth, was already living in Los Angeles.  She may have felt that there was no future for her in Arkansas, so she just packed up a few of her belongings and the children and took the train to California.  "They always said on the train from St. Louis to California, World War II ended."  Lucy ended up in Yountville, [[Napa County, California]] working at a veterans hospital.  She met William "Bill" Sisson (1902-1989) there (he was very ill, a patient in that hospital).

Bill ended up being allergic to redwood dust (not a good thing when you work in the building industry in northern California) and after many illnesses relating to that, the family moved back to the (Snohomish-Cathcart) area of Washington State in l953.  Tawana,  Billie and Sonny went to Eureka Schools.  Billie graduated from high school in 1955 and Tawana in 1956 (Burlington-Edison High School, Burlington, Wasington) so they were probably in high school in Eureka in 1952 and 1953.
