She was born July 15, 1920, to Charlie and Nola Hilliard of Polk County. She was of the Baptist faith and a lifelong member of the Eastern Star.
Everyone knew her as “Chickie,” because of her employment of almost a lifetime at the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant on Wildwood Avenue.
Left to cherish her memory are her sons: Bob Evans of Cleveland, and Joey Angelone and his wife, Norma, of Cleveland; her daughter, Sharon Wright of Cleveland, whom she loved dearly; her grandchildren: Rhonda Campbell, Andrea Angelone Crane, Christa Angelone Stuart, Michael Wright and April Pearson; several great-grandchildren; and special friends: Billie McCraken, Debra Pierce and Janet Carroll.
