Sunshine Stride (August 21st, 1974) was born in Rising Hope, Alabama. She is the daughter of Sadie Stride and Woodrow Teed. After the death of her mother, Sunshine's father got custody of her after a fierce custody battle. Woodrow then sent her to live in California with one of his half-brothers. Sunshine and her Uncle did not get along very well. When she was just 13 years old she met Jeffery Stockton, a 36 year old member of a sex cult known as Pearl Gate. Sunshine joined the cult, and had a daughter with Mr. Stockton -- Spirit Stride. They would later have two other children, Blossom and Rainbow. Sunshine was very much a flower child. The cult she was a part of was raided in 2009. Since then she's been living in Southern California. She recently returned to Rising Hope.
