Sad News: I received word the other day that Elizabeth “Betty” Oland, one of the Hawks Nest’s original owners, mother of former owner Jennifer Paterson, and grandmother of current 3rd generation owner Amy McKay, has died.
Betty and her husband Don, were close friends with my parents, and I’m sure they are remembered fondly by many long-time owners.
The last time we saw Betty was in 2002 when we brought my mother down to the Hawks Nest one last time for her 85th birthday.
Betty’s obituary can be found Here
For those who wish, condolences may be sent to the family in care of Betty’s daughter Jennifer at the following address:
