Hattie,

You were loved and will be missed! I remember the first time we met at Linwood Mills and you had the stern face and then I did a little comedy and saw you crack that 😊 i looked at you and just so you know I saw that smile lol! Loved our trips on Saturdays and gatherings. You were a special woman and DUTCH. God has another special angel! RIP You did it your way until then end!

My sincerest sympathy for Hattie's passing. I have lived at the Linwood Mill for about three years and Hattie was truly one of my favorite people. Last Christmas I had a little gathering and Hattie visited with me for over two hours - as my own beloved Mother would be 99 right now, we talked about just everything in the past. My Dad was a Drill Instructor and an MP in the Marine Corps during WWII and she shared with me stories from her military career. My one consolation is that she passed quickly - I would have hated to see Hattie languish - she was much too vibrant for that. I will miss her terribly - I was blessed in that the last time I saw her was in her own apartment and gave her a big kiss and a hug - never knowing she was moving just after that. May your memories console you - we have lost a gem!

Family of Hattie,
As a Linwood Mills neighbor to Hattie, I was gifted with the joy and pleasure of knowing such a unique and lovely person. I have such a happy memory of spending last New Year's Eve celebrating with her and laughing most of the night. She was so loved among us all and will always be remembered for the wonderful woman that she was.
My deepest sympathy to you all,
Carel Bates

Please accept my condolences for the loss of Hattie. I have lived at Linwood for 2 years and Hattie was my very first friend here...always inviting me to join her and others with whatever was going on. I'm glad I was able to visit with her a few days before she moved. Hattie was a sweet, down to earth lady, and I miss her so!
