Eva Mae Pugh, prize-winning Tupperware lady
Eva Mae Pugh earned enough points in Tupperware sales to receive a van to haul her products to Tupperware parties -- an amazing feat for someone who did not drive.
"Eva was a good seller," said Tupperware colleague Nora Ritter. "She earned lots of free stuff -- big and little -- and earned good money."
The Dash Between April 19, 1924, when Eva was born a coal miner's daughter in West Virginia, and July 24, 2010, when the Tupperware lady of Lorain, Ohio, died at age 86, appears in the Aug. 22, 2010, edition of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.
