Pauline Spaw Hatter, Casey Co., KY (1924-2014)

Pauline was born on Carter Ridge in Pulaski County on October 2nd, 1924 to the late Herman and Ocal Stroud Spaw. She was the oldest of five children, two of who preceded her in death, brothers Lloyd and Roger Spaw. In 1944 at age 20 she married William (Bill) Hatter and had been a widow for the past sixteen years after his passing.

Although she and Bill had no children, Pauline had a lot of experience caring for them. Her mother was diagnosed with Tuberculosis when Pauline was thirteen and she took the role as mother of four younger children in the home for two years while her mother took treatments and recuperated.

Pauline and Bill lived all of their married life on the Hatter family farm in the Argyle community of Casey County. She was a homemaker, gardener and seamstress and was famous for her fresh apple cake and shared the recipe with family and friends. Her cake was always requested for family reunions and special events. Pauline was a long time member of the Rich Hill Church of Christ.

She is survived by sister, Mildred Rader of Wilmore and brother, Dormas Spaw of Cincinnati, and several nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
