Attended Kitty Hiland’s graveside service this morning at Rosedale, and as Brad Bumgardner stated in his eulogy, Kitty was an “entrepreneur way ahead of her time”!
I remember George, Kitty, & kids when they moved to the Jessup area & bought my Great Uncle Billie & Aunt Minnie Holbert’s Farm N of Jessup (where Shoes Ridge Bar is now).
As a young HS/College girl I always admired Kitty’s creativity & her ability to take a chance: she was featured in Family Circle in the 70’s; sold goodies out of her farmhouse; owned 4 or 5 restaurants in Rosedale, Bridgeton, & Rockville’s Country GrapeVine Store plus Herb Garden Cafe (her walnut chocolate pie & other goodies were to “die for” & was voted “Best Pies” in Wabash Valley numerous times by the TH Tribune Star)!
Kitty was a beautiful woman; always dressed to perfection (plus hair & makeup); most creative person ever; nothing was a challenge “it will work”; a real risk taker; and I admired her as a neighbor & a “later in life” friend.
Keep baking up there Kitty!
