St. Charles resident Sue Carlton, 59, was volunteering at the Northern Illinois Food Bank in Geneva when she answered 11 questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.

Where did you grow up? West Bend, Wis.

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Roseanne Barr

First job? I was a page in a library.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a teacher. Instead, I worked for Nielsen market research company.

A movie you’d recommend? My favorite movie of all time is “Shawshank Redemption,” but I just saw “Les Misérables,” and I loved it.

Favorite charity? Northern Illinois Food Bank, Fox Valley Presbyterian Church and American Cancer Society

Do you play an instrument? Piano

Hobbies? Golf and swimming

Favorite local restaurant? McNally’s Traditional Irish Pub in St. Charles

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I lost my wedding dress a week before the wedding. I was wearing my mom’s dress, and we lived in New Jersey. She sent it to New Jersey to have it altered, and then we shipped it back UPS to have it dry-cleaned in Wisconsin where the wedding was going to be, Dec. 26. It never arrived. So a week before the wedding, I had to go out and buy myself a dress off the rack. The original dress never arrived.

Anything else? Our 23-year-old daughter is in the Peace Corps in Uganda.
