Growing together through a marriage

Vickie & Sissy Goodwin

“The greatest gift you’ve given me is the gift of how to love.”

Growing up in Wyoming in the 1950s, Sissy Goodwin started wearing his sister’s dresses. At first, he hid his clothing preferences, but when he shared that part of himself with his soon-to-be wife, Vickie, she supported him.

At StoryCorps, Sissy and Vickie talk about the early days of their five-decade-long marriage, the tough times, and how they lovingly forged a new path together.
