SIDE STREETS: 83-year-old Colorado Springs Sears saleswoman still going strong

Mary Bigler, 83, seen here May 7, 2013, has sold tools at Sears on Southgate Road in the Broadmoor Towne Center since 1982. She went back to school to become a teacher and took a weekend job at Sears after her husband died, leaving her as a single parent with four children. She hopes to work "until they carry me out on a gurney." Bill Vogrin / The Gazette
