    (October 19, 1936-November 20, 2013)
    Birth name was Sylvia Celeste Shoemaker
    Wrote 'Adventures of a Psychic' and 'The Other Side and Back'
    Started professional psychic readings (May 8, 1973)
    Incorporated as Nirvana Foundation for Psychic Research (1974)
    She was as phony as any other psychic.
    The majority of her predictions were so ambiguous that she could claim an accurate prediction by making it work.
    She agreed to be tested by skeptic, James Randi, on CNN but was never tested.
    She claimed to be on a mission from God.
    Her son, Chris Dufresne, is also a psychic, because he is in her blood line.
    She had a pay-per-view special.
    Probably to get around local laws and make her profit, she ran 'lecture series.'
    Among the junk she sold were mugs ($10) and sword pins ($70).
    She wrote the book, 'Do Be... Don't Be Book,' for kids (plagiarizing Romper Room?).
    Her rules for her spirit guide Francine were: 'Each question must have a single focus and be brief, and we cannot deal with missing persons or homicides in this venue. Fee is $100 per question (we usually limit you to 2 questions).'
    She made a fortune off of gullible simpletons.
    She was against the psychic hotlines (calling the kettle black?).
